- Credit: Archant
Royston Ladies impressed as they beat Cuffley 29-0 in their latest fixture, but it wasn’t such a good weekend for the men as they lost 41-23 to Finsbury Park in a frustrating game.
The ladies took to the pitch hoping to continue their winning streak, but they spent most of the first-half defending against a strong Cuffley side.
They weathered the storm and took control in the second-half, with the forwards powerfully driving them on.
Beth Greenie Fletcher got three tries, with Sophie Millett playing an important role with some crunching tackles.
Laura McGillvray also went over late on to round off the scoring and secure the win for the Crows.

Things started well for the Crows and they took the lead in the first-half.
Euan Rees and Tom Raymen both crossed over to put them ahead, with William Dacey successfully converting both tries.
Dacey also kicked three penalties in what was an impressive performance from the back.
Finsbury Park fought back though, exploiting gaps in the Crows' defence - especially in the final 20 minutes - to secure what in the end was a comfortable win.
The defeat means Royston continue to struggle near the foot of the table after a poor start to the season.
They face a tough test this weekend when they visit Enfield Ignatians before a fortnight's rest ahead of the visit of Hertfordshire rivals Stevenage.
