Lions 16-12 Wire-ish this aft, and that very old phrase of “A win’s a win.” would prob sum up the proceedings.

Very few established first-teamers were in the visitors’ line up, but Dec Patten was, and he showed a few touches of the quality he possesses.

The Heywood Road pitch has seen better days, and playing open football on it was always gonna be difficult, but…………………

I’d imagine that the Rec next week will be of a similar ilk, so it could have been a blessing in disguise.

It was 16-12 at oranges, with  the try count three to two in our favour, but neither side troubled the scorers after the interval.

Not a match that’ll live long in the memory, but at least we can now head up to ‘Haven on the back of a victory.
