SCOOP!

4 months ago By Graham Ellis

SRFC featured on three pages in today's Visiter thanks to match reporter Mike Smith and rookie behind the lens man Tom Peacock.

Tom has done a great job whilst out injured supporting his teammates. Nothing wrong with his snapper though as he joins Angus and Joe in capturing the action. The Visiter has skipper Joe Mawdsley and Charlie Attis as the poster boys on the back page with Josh Critchley (x2), Gareth Lang, Jak Parker, Calum Monaghan (x2), Danny Banks (x2) and Tom Hill in the thick of it on a double spread inside.

Great publicity for shirt sponsors Nationwide Produce, Ramada, Fusco Coaches, Manor Lodge Foods with their respective logos in evidence even in filthy conditions.

Despite not being a vintage performance, a solid away win.Manchester Medics 13 Southport 23. The Thirds also chalked up another fine win in a fixture reversed at the last minute as the opposition pitch at New Brighton was unfit. The 38-7 win included another try from the evergreen and prolific Mark Garner-Jones his third of the season a great prelude on the main pitch before relocating into the clubhouse for the England v Wales nail biter.

No Six Nations or Waterloo Road senior rugby action this weekend as the Firsts travel to Hoylake hoping to avenge a narrow defeat earlier in the season and put daylight between the clubs at the bottom. The Seconds are once again without a fixture, with Thirds at Ruskin Park, St Helens. On Sunday the Ladies travel to Sefton and the Colts to Lymm.
