Dale put on the after Burn-ers!
4:57pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Sport
Rossendale 33 Burnage 18 Rossendale restored their five point advantage at the top of N3N with a bonus point 33-18 win at home to Burnage.
Despite the winning margin this result was much closer than the scoreline would suggest with the the visitors pack denying the home side possession for long periods of the action yet, forced to live off scraps, were still industrious enough to run in five well crafted tries.
Burnage took the lead with a try from Ralph Lawson off a catch and drive, Ross Winney slotting the conversion to add to an earlier penalty.
Rossendale hit back with a try from Tom Albinson off a neat break by Jamie Albinson and good support play from Sam Lothian who found the centre coming up on the outside.
Steve Nutt kicked the conversion but a second try for Lawson again off a catch and drive gave Burnage a 7-15 lead at the interval.
A penalty from Winney increased the advantage but with the Lancastrians at last beginning to enjoy more of the ball, a try from Nutt off a break by Jamie Albinson converted by the full back reduced the deficit with a try from Danny Collins rampaging through from five metres out also converted by Nutt giving Rossendale the lead for the first time.
Now in control further tries from Jamie Albinson, off an audacious dummy again converted by Nutt and Danny Harrison straight from the restart supporting a 60 metre dash by Anthony Bingham sealed the win.
