Byline: BY RON ROBY Junior Rugby

MERSEYSIDE RFU development officer Martin Jones has other heavy commitments this week, organising a joint RFU clinic with Sale Sharks at Liverpool College.

More than 50 youngsters are expected to be present each day with Sale Sharks Tongan scrum half Sililo Martens expected to attend.

Lancashire U20s beat Cheshire at Waterloo at the weekend 26-10 to bounce back after their defeat at the hands of rivals Yorkshire.

Cheshire went ahead with a try from winger Jack Johnson but Lancashire recouped the lead when lock Dan Perry crossed and full back Mark Murray got a second.

A drop goal from Dominic Kohler gave the Red Rose side further breathing space.

In the Daily Mail Cup Lymm under-15s moved into the semi-finals with an emphatic 39-0 victory over Austin Friars.

The Cheshire side grabbed seven tries in all and now meet Wellington College Berkshire, one step away from Twickenham. St Ambrose, Altrincham were not so lucky.

Their hopes of reaching the final of the Daily Mail U18 Cup were dashed in cruel fashion when they drew 15-15 against St Benedicts Ealing and were then knocked out 3-2 on the try count rule.
