SIMON Frost’s side made it four wins from four with another convincing 35-0 victory over Colne and Nelson.

The Chancery Road side struggled initially against the stronger pack of forwards but found themselves ahead when quick hands saw the ball transferred to Shane O’Sullivan to cross for the opening try.

Colne hit back but they knocked on when in attack and Rick Wareing then raced 80 metres clear to score under the sticks.

Some good build-up work by Stuart Harris and Mike Richardson helped feed Ben Stubbs, who was able to cross the try-line.

Chorley’s backline were now on top and they combined to set up centre Ben Renton who outpaced the covering defence to touch down in the corner.

There was still time in the first half for scrum-half Rob Melling to get this name on the scoresheet.

In the second period, Colne came out all guns blazing and kept Chorley on their toes.

With 20 minutes remaining, a Colne player fell awkwardly at a line-out forcing the match to be abandoned.

Frost said: “The performance of the lads was fantastic and it was great to pick a bonus point.

“There were notable good displays from Mike Richardson, Shane O’Sullivan and Richard Wareing’s 100 per cent conversion rate.”
