Royston Vets 60 Wendens Ambo 5
ROYSTON Vets ran riot against the ever improving Wendens Ambo - but despite their best efforts the visitors were hit by 10 Royston tries.
With a few of the club's young colts thrown in it was a case of keeping it in the family.
Neil Smith and his son Adam both scored tries, while Daniel Retsima added to his dad Dave's two first-half tries.
But it was Royston's older heads who controlled the game, as Colin Dacey, Jason Shakleton, Dave Howell, and Tim Boyce disrupted the visitors' play, while Simon Rees, Jason Downes and Roy Phillips dominated every line out.
And after the opening tries by Retsima and Smith, Steve Bristow bulldozed his way over the Wendens line, with the away side staring at a heavy defeat.

Man-of-the-match Downes was next on the scoresheet with a galloping run, before grabbing a second moments later.
Captain Colin Letch then joined in on the fun with a well-taken try.
And not to be outdone, Shakleton stormed up the pitch to add further misery.
In the second half Wendens got an immediate try of their own after some intelligent interchanging passing, but their possession soon dwindled as Royston upped the pressure once more.
Steve Cook and Adam Smith then joined the action, and their searing pace caused instant problems.
The young guns used their legs to great effect late in the game, as Smith jinked his way past the tackles and sped over the line.
Colin and Paul Dacey added a further 10 points, thanks to a number of well-taken conversions.
