Douglas hit the top of the table

Snellgrove stars in Douglas romp

Douglas beat Manchester 56-12 at Port-e-Chee and secured a bonus point win to move one point clear at the top of South Lancashire/Cheshire Division One on Saturday.


Two early penalties from Bryn Snellgrove got Douglas off the mark and midway through the first half Carl Murray bagged the opening try which Snellgrove duly converted.


Snellgrove added a third penalty as half-time beckoned which was swiftly followed by a James Wood try, which Snellgrove also converted, to give Douglas a 23-0 lead at the break.


Lance and Shaun Wyllie both went over for tries early in the second half to secure the try bonus point.


At this stage the Manchester defence crumbled slightly and Adam Boyd raced in.

Shaun Wyllie grabbed his second and Conor Stephens also got in on the action.


With Snellgrove steadily converting all but one, the lead was pushed out to 56-0.

Manchester fought to the very end and scored two consolation tries, courtesy of Paul Farrington and Richard McCartney.
