Hunts & Peterborough Cup
Peterborough 17 Huntingdon Stags 7
STAGS should feel satisfied with the performance they gave with a team containing three debutants.
In persistent rain and a strong wind, Stags will feel they failed to capitalise sufficiently when the elements were in their favour in the first half.

Stags made all the early running but the home side defended well and the visitors failed to find the killer blow until Elliot Baldwin finished off good close-quarters work and Damien Whales converted.
Both sides tried to play constructive rugby with ball in hand but Stags may have benefited from some kick-and-chase tactics allowing the strong wind to push back the hosts.

The game was up for grabs after the break and although the home side scored a penalty and a converted try, Stags were more effective into the wind than Peterborough had been.
Stags went through one spell when a score seemed certain but nothing materialised. Having weathered the storm it was the hosts, through Darian Uys, who grabbed another try as he ran 20 yards for a converted score and at 17-7 there was no way back for Stags.
At home against Letchworth, Stags II continued their good form when two tries from Matt Griggs and one from Spencer Burgess helped to secure a 24-0 victory.
