Royston will welcome Stevenage Town to Therfield Heath hoping to extend their unbeaten start to 2024.

The rugby club's first team have both Counties Three Herts Middlesex games so far, 40-29 at home to Berkhamsted and then 34-12 away to Watford.

The latter began well with young second row Will Green snaffling a turnover before good hands by Ben Owen put Brad Emanuel away for the first score.

A quickly-taken penalty put Terry King in for the second, Emanuel grabbed his second not long after, showing good pace to beat the covering defence, and a fourth arrived just before half-time.

Not long after the break, scrum-half Adam Smith joined in on the action, sniping from short range and after Watford pulled two scores back, before Roman Jervis wrapped up the scoring for Royston.

The Crows have now won five out of the last six, including a 46-12 success over this Saturday's opponents.

They sit fifth.

If that wasn't enough, the second team took three victories in January, beating Cantabs 73-12, Datchworth 19-14 and a 73-15 success against Biggleswade.

A spokeswoman for the club said: "The upturn in form for the club has coincided with increased numbers at training and better availability for weekend matches.

"Momentum is with us as we head towards the business end of the season.

"But we are always welcoming new players into our senior set up as well as boys and girls from age four to 18.

"People should contact us via our website or social media pages for more information."
