Five tries, five league points and fifth position in the Midlands Division One East standings all added up to a satisfying end to 2015 for Huntingdon.
Stags beat bottom side Old Laurentians 33-10 at the Racecourse last Saturday, but it wasn’t a result greeted by total delight.
Huntingdon’s discipline again came into question as they picked up two yellow cards and conceded more than three times the number of penalties as their visitors, while their forwards also struggled in the scrum for the second successive game.
They were issues which Stags were able to overcome though to complete a fine opening half of the campaign in winning style.
Captain-for-the-day Wayne Bradley went over for the opening try before Connor Withers sped in for another score.

The pick of Stags’ efforts also arrived in the first half as Dylan Leney fed Tom Morgan to slice open the Old Laurentians defence and touch down. All three of those tries were converted by the boot of Dan Malem.
He then added two further breakaway tries in the second period to seal victory before the struggling visitors claimed a couple of consolation scores of their own.
