Royston 12 Stevenage II 13
THE Crows found themselves edged out in a tight game on Saturday (November 25).
Despite the hosts showing eight changes from their previous game, they took an early lead when Sam Newson put Ali Williams away to score on his return to the first team.
With the Royston forwards disrupting Stevenage's scrum at every opportunity, they doubled their lead when some strong direct running by the forwards put JasonTurks away for a rare try.

Young Jack Hoye came onto the wing to replace Williams for his first team debut and had an excellent game nearly scoring in the corner.
The visitors produced a strong second half performance, and with four minutes remaining, they were awarded a penalty. One touch judge waved it over, while the other did not, and the referee gave Stevenage the benefit of the doubt as they snatched victory.
