HUNTINGDON Stags soon forgot about last week's demolition of St Ives as they crashed to a 30-0 defeat at Leicester Forest on Saturday.

Stags suffered their seventh successive league defeat to move one step closer to their almost inevitable relegation. Despite the home team being no better than average, Stags failed to reach last week's tempo and put in a lethargic performance to go 18-0 down at the interval.

Strong wind in their favour gave the visitors hope with some improved play in the second half but two quick-fire Leicester tries put the game out of reach. Stags wasted some good scoring opportunities and the game ended 30-0.

Stags now have just three games to make up the four point deficit to stay in the Midlands Three East (South) league, and even then they would need results to go in their favour. They have won just three of 19 games and next play Stewarts and Lloyds Corby at Hinchingbrooke on Saturday.
