Crewe & Nantwich lose on the road
By Steve Holding
Crewe and Nantwich had been stunned earlier in the week by the sudden death of club stalwart .
Nick Price,who held many important roles in the club when his playing career finished and performed them all with aplomb,a friend to many he will be greatly missed .Thoughts of coarse are with his family at this sad time.As a mark of respect for Nick both sets of players and supporters joined in a minutes applause before kick off.
Crewe began the game badly a series of drives from the hosts forwards led to quick ball to the left wing who broke a couple of tackles to score 7-0 The game was then stopped for a head injury to the Wolverhampton fly half which led to hospital visit ,Crewe wish him a speedy recovery.
The visitors resumed the game the stronger however a questionable turnover at the ruck gave Wolverhampton the opportunity to release their right wing to score in the corner 12-0 a further penalty gave the home side a 15-0 lead at half time
The second half started brightly for Crewe but after some good pressure they knocked on allowing their hosts to again move the ball to their right winger who again broke tackles to score under posts 22-0
Again Crewe came back at their hosts and again ball was turned over in Wolverhampton 22 for another breakaway try this time from the outside centre 27-0 . As so often happens when a side are chasing the game Crewe conceded another try from deep 34-0.
Crewe then managed to keep hold of the ball and good combination play between forwards and backs gave full back George Colebourne a consolation try in the corner 34-5 . Wolverhampton had the final the score against a tired Crewe match ended 41-5.
Crewe played well for periods and the score perhaps flattered their hosts but missed tackles were to cost them dear.
