Ruskin Park 35 Manchester 24
10:20am Thursday 6th March 2014 in Sport
RUSKIN at last played to their full potential and implemented exactly how they wanted to start to play.
It was a must win to get them away from the relagation zone and to create a deserved gap between them and the bottom four teams.
The speed and style of the Ruskin back line kicked into place with Fogarty taking a quick tap penalty in his own 22 metre line, broke the gain line, off loaded to Farrelly who hit the line like a run away train and went nearly the full length of the pitch before the newly positioned, now forward, Shaun Tress crossed the line for a try, converted by Fogarty, 7-0. Ruskin gave a soft try away but Mousley crossed, Fogarty goaled to make it 14-7 at halftime.
The second half saw Ruskin concede two interception tries to trail 14-24.
Two penalties cut the deficit with 15 minutes remaining. At this point several Ruskin players deservedly played man of the match winning performances including McGarvey, Birch, Farrelly and Mousley.
Tress crossing for his second and Fogarty added another Fogarty A conversion and another penalty gave Ruskin a well deserved win and the addition of a four try bonus point.
The C+A Tiling man of the match was captain Adam Fogarty.
