Burnley back in the groove!

Burnley returned to action with a bonus point 43-5 victory over a physical and stubborn Bury side.An early morning pitch inspection gave the game the green light on a blustery day both teams contributed to an entertaining game.Burnley were in fire in the opening exchanges with Liam Canning going over closely followed by a quick tap from Rick Griffiths after a good James Redford run.Griffiths added the extras for a 12-0 lead.Burnley kept attacking with the electric Redford and a great Marcus Duxbury run taken on by Charlie Gregory.After a great scrum Burnley were awarded a penalty try despite good control from Skipper Ben Healy who grounded the ball anyway.The game was then punctuated by a series of injuries by the visitors which broke up the pattern if the game.The game got going again after a great lineout and drive James White burst from the back of the maul to score a try.Bury responded well with their best spell dominating possession but struggling to break a very well organised home defence.Burnley lost a player to the bin after the ref lost patience with the number and frequency of infringements.HT 24-0.Bury continued where they had left off laying siege to the Burnley line but not looking like they could get over the try line.Burnley eventually broke out with an excellent Duxbury run but the Burnley player was unable to hold the pass for what would have been a definite score.Bury lost a player to the bin and to compound the pain Dan Charles scored after a good run from the penalty.Griifiths converting.Bury grabbed a converted try a reward for their hard work .An outrageous kick and chase from Redford led to him regathering his own kick to score be converting his own kick.Burnkeys final score came from Canning after a bullocking run.In the final seconds Burnley again lost a player to the bin.FT 43-5.Burnley were excellent in spells against the never say die visitors.
