Your News Chorley 5 - Hutton 50

Hutton continued their quest for the league title with a well earned victory away at Chorley. The game was played in blustery conditions, with a strong wind blowing down the field. Hutton made several changes to their side but still had sufficient resources to score eight tries. However, it was Chorley who started the brighter of the sides as Hutton were slow to the breakdown. The first try arrived within five minutes as a midfield break saw Chorleys winger touch down in the corner. The try acted as a wake-up call to Hutton, who began to get a footing in the game and despite playing into the wind, enjoyed the better possession and territory. The visitors first score came when Craig Cameron spun out of would-be tacklers to cross underneath the posts; Andy Tobutt added the conversion to give Hutton the lead. Hutton were playing some good rugby in the opening half with the ball being spun wide and were enjoying success at opposing lineouts and scrums. It was then the packs turn to drive forward from their own lineout, and the resulting rolling maul allowed Jordan Ayrey to crash over from close range. And minutes later, Hutton crossed for their third try of the half. A midfield turnover and some slick handling allowed Pete Sanderson to race clear and give Hutton a 17-5 lead. The home side tried in vain to create any further scoring opportunities as Huttons defence stayed strong up until half-time.

The visitors began the second half brightly and a succession of scrums were the platform for the pack to drive towards the line. Aidy Harrison scored Huttons fourth try of the afternoon with a pick-up from the base of a 5-metre scrum. Tobutts conversion made it 24-5. A quickly taken lineout and good support play finished with Cameron finding space to register his second try of the game. Tobutt adding the extras. Chorley were struggling to cope with the speed of Hutons counter attacks, and the visitors could have added further tries but knocked on at crucial times. It was then Harrisons turn to cross for his second try when forwards and backs combined, with the support play allowing the number 8 to dive over, Tobutt converting to make it 38-5. From the restart, Hutton broke clear again and mounted another attack and Cameron completed his hat-trick following another blindside break. Chorley finished the game enjoying a good spell of possession but failed to find a way through, and when trying to keep the ball alive, presented Hutton with their final try of the afternoon. Cameron broke clear and allowed Ben Fleetwood to score under the posts. Tobutts fifth conversion brought up the 50 point mark. Another hard fought away victory takes Hutton above Windermere with a superior points difference. Hutton travel to Blackpool next week aiming for maximum points.
