Rossendale suffer defeat to Burnage

First published in Sport

AFTER the highs of last week’s superb win against Billingham came the lows of defeat against Burnage.

Dale travelled to Manchester on the back of a 54-8 win over Billingham last week – their biggest victory of the season.

However, Dale slipped to a 10th defeat of the season while Burnage completed the double over their Valley rivals.

The teams exchanged early tries with Sam Lowthian crossing for Dale. Burnage then opened up a 15-5 lead only for Dale to fight back to draw level thanks to a try from Anthony Bingham, converted by Steve Nutt.

A Nutt penalty drew the sides level but three further tries saw Burnage pull away and climb above Dale in the table.
