ADAM Fletcher hailed his Lymm side’s attitude as “outstanding” as they came away from Blackburn with a losing bonus point.

The Beechwood side were beaten 15-10 in Lancashire as they slipped to a third defeat in a row in difficult conditions.

However, Cormac Nolan’s penalty on the stroke of full time ensured they did not come home empty-handed after Kurt Riley had scored their only try six minutes earlier, which Nolan had converted.

“Another tough loss where the elements played a big part in the result,” Fletcher said.

“I thought the boys’ attitude was outstanding, especially in the coldest of conditions.

“The first half was tough as the weather was at its worst with Blackburn having the majority of possession and territory.

“Given this, I was happy with only being 12 points down at the break.

“Conditions did improve in the second half, but our luck didn’t.

“We lost two backs within minutes of each other, which had a big impact on our shape and structure.

“We still had opportunities to score earlier than we did, but our accuracy just wasn’t quite there.

“We did finish extremely strongly and worked hard to come away with a point.”

Lymm finish 2021 with back-to-back home games – they host York on Saturday before welcoming Rossendale on December 18.
