Thatto Heath 22 v Orrell St. James' 10


Crusaders battle a win against the Blue and Gold

A strong Thatto Heath side, well led by loose forward Sean Quinn, proved to be too much for a very young Orrell outfit. Sean contributed 12 pts to his team's tally with two tries and 2 goals. Orrell gave a good account of themselves and looked to be gaining the advantage but the Thatto scrum half intercepted a try scoring pass to race the length of the field for the opening try which Quinn converted. Shortly afterwards an up and under was fumbled and the home team raced into the lead at 10 - 0. A penalty for obstruction took the score to 12-0 before quick hand s gave the visitors hope as Andy Fleming dived in at the corner and Jake Davies' conversion made it 12 - 6. As half time approached a lost ball gave Quinn another chance which he gratefully accepted to give Thatto an interval lead at 16 - 6
The second half was a very even affair. Quinn increased the lead with a penalty but Orrell persevered and scored an excellent try from Adam Lavin to take the final score to 22 - 10. Some top class rugby was exhibited by both teams to warm the crowd on a bitterly cold damp afternoon and Orrell should by no means be disappointed with their opening match against last year's Cup Winners
