STAGS continued their win-less run of form when the visited Banbury with a much depleted squad.
Banbury "Bulls" had already taken two wins from three games this season and were in confident mood against the side that are fast becoming the league's whipping boys.
Although Stags had good spells, the first half tells its own story as the hosts ran in five tries and killed off the game before the break.
A lack of consistency by Stags and several unforced errors gave the home side the opportunities which they did not waste.

On the other side, Stags simply failed to capitalise on the possession they enjoyed.
The second half took a familiar pattern as the Bulls ran in another three tries in the second half and, with a total of five conversions, ended up with 50 points on the board.
For the second week running Stags failed to trouble the scoreboard.
With three home games coming up, two in the league and one in the Intermediate Cup, Stags are looking forward to regaining the optimism and confidence that they started the season with following their pre-season wins against Welwyn and Dunstable.
