WILMSLOW Wolves are continuing to lead the way in Rugby Football Union's North One West.

They consolidated top spot with a 59-14 success against lowly Bowdon on Saturday.

Coaches Chris Jones and Mark Jennings should have been more satisfied than not with what their players delivered.

While there is always room for improvement, nine tries keeps the Wolves on track.

Next up Wilmslow visit mid-table Vale of Lune this weekend, while two more of the league's heavyweights Firwood Waterloo and Birkenhead Park loom on the horizon.

The weekend's result was achieved despite Jones having to dig deep into his larder to fill the gaps in his line-up.

Ollie Stockwin, in only his second appearance in the Wolves front row, let nobody down, while Rick Parker coming on as a debutant sub at loose head will have had his father, a former Wilmslow prop more than 25 years ago, purring with delight on the touchline.

And diminutive Conor McMurdock, who has in the past appeared as a hooker, a winger, a scrum half, a fly half, served as a hooker again.

He may never be an automatic first-team choice for any position but there’s more to rugby than just that.

McMurdock has always been the ultimate club and team man and he showed that again with no little ability and a stirring performance.

There was also a stand-out 40 minutes from Danny Kennedy, playing at number eight, before he had to leave the field injured.
