Old Colfeians 20 Bury 52

BURY notched up their fourth consecutive bonus point away win, running in eight tries against Old Colfeians on Saturday.

The game was less than three minutes old when Bury opened the scoring, as Frost powered his way through, racing away for the try.

The visitors then extended their lead as Hogg combined well with Eggars to set up Kearney to dive in under the posts.

Krammer’s extras made it 12-0.

Colfes reduced the deficit, executing a well rehearsed catch and drive routine to score in the corner.

Before the first quarter was over, Bury scored their third try. Kenny Eggars chipped over the full back to score an outrageous try, to take a 19-5 lead into half-time.

After the interval, the home side started to dominate and after repelling several waves of attack, Bury’s defence ran out of numbers and Colfeians scored to make it 19-10.

Bury responded and pressed straight from the kick-off and a quick attacking phase gave Frost the space to crash over.

Soon after he scored again, outpacing the home defence to power through, Briggs’ excellent conversion from the touchline making it 31-10.

Colfes’ forwards refused to lie down and they managed to create a try from a lineout with their number eight spinning off away from Bury’s defence to score.

Bury again responded to conceding a try by scoring one themselves. Great work Webdale, Alex Lee and Frost allowed Jo Flexman a simple run in by the posts.

Vociferous support spurred the Colfes forwards to again drive and maul their way over the line to make it 38-20.

A fabulous preset move saw Nick Flexman scythe through almost untouched and, with Briggs converting, Bury were looking more comfortable.

Bury then extended their lead just before the final whistle. Fly half Krammer, got in on the act, receiving the ball in space he chipped over the onrushing defence, collected his own kick and dived over.

Briggs made it four from four, to round off a hard fought victory.
