Biggleswade Vets 22 Royston Vets 35

ROYSTON ran out winners, despite trailing at the break.

The visitors went behind, but responded with probably the best try of the game from centre Steve Bristow, who barged through and linked well with Jason Downes, before crashing over the line.

Colin Dacey, celebrating turning 50, scored the first of four conversions.

Biggleswade grabbed two further tries in the first half to leave the Crows off the pace at the interval.

But second-half Royston pressure paid off when winger Paul Lawrence twice went over the line.

Then a quick line out by Billy Payne to Paul Dacey caught Biggleswade by surprise and Dacey went over.

Captain Stevie Crook then added a try, and Royston sealed victory with another try and conversion.
