Biggleswade v Royston (double header)
ROYSTON were on the back foot for most of the first half of the first game between these two sides as Biggleswade had most of the possession.
Spirited defending by Royston kept the score board respectable, however the home side was still up by four tries to none at half time.
The second half saw more possession for Royston plus a gaining in confidence, and they only conceded the one try.
In response a great individual effort saw debutant James Shannon rop the ball form his opponent to run half the length of the field to score Royston's only try as they lost 5-1.

With more possession and gaining in confidence Royston rallied in the second half and only conceded one more try.
In game two Royston were much more confident and were strong in defence.
They were a lot more dominant in the rucks and mauls while James Meecham and man-of-the-match Rhys Redrup were standouts for Royston.
They were ably supported by Ben Ireland's good kicking, solid hit ups and roaming defending by Maxwell Ayliffe and scrimmaging by Jake Boyce.
Royston conceded just the one try when they were caught short on the blind side when the backs were caught in the ruck and lost 1-0.
