MELTHAM All Blacks are hoping to finish their season on a high.
After spending the past three weeks in Cup action, the All Blacks are now focusing once again on Pennine Division V matters.
Unfortunately, their initial League return ended in disappointment as they were beaten 25-16 at home to second-placed Stainland Stags.
But there was enough to suggest they could put things right at Hollinwood tomorrow.
Against the Stags, they played the better rugby, with Andy Lambert opening the scoring after following up a Rob Lewis grubber kick.
The next Meltham try came from a quickly-taken penalty, resulting in Lewis Healey crashing over at the start of the second half.
Meltham’s final try was scored after the ball was shifted from one side to the other, dragging the opposition defence out of position for Ryan White to score, with Lewis converting all but one of the tries.
Unfortunately, Stainland enjoyed the bounce of the ball on a couple of occasions, allowing them to open a lead Meltham couldn’t pull back.
Lewis Healey and Matt Carter were joint man-of-the-match
