Lewis Hall piled up the points to help St Neots continue their perfect Midlands Division Four East (South) record last Saturday.

Hall, who stood in at fly-half, grabbed two tries and kicked four conversions in a 31-22 success at strugglers Aylestone St James.

But a fifth consecutive league triumph certainly wasn’t a cakewalk for Steve Gibson’s table-toppers who found themelves behind at half-distance.

They trailed 8-7 at the break after losing key man Joe Woodgate to injury and only having a converted Dave Hopkins try to how for their efforts in the opening 40 minutes.

Aiden Jordan saw a try disallowed early in the second period before Rory Dingemans went over, but the hosts replied with a score of their own.

Saints responded by piling on the pressure and were rewarded with a Rhod Howcroft touchdown ahead of Hall’s brace which secured victory before Aylestone St James grabbed a consolation.

St Neots don’t have another league fixture until November 25 when they entertain Bedford Swifts.
