THERE was mixed success for the Stags Colts as the U15s visit to Bury and recorded a resounding 60-5 win, but the U14s took a bruising against Cambridge with the final score 64-7.
At Bury the home side took an early lead with an unconverted try as Stags sorted themselves out, but from the restart it was all one-way traffic.
The Stags were firing on all cylinders and struck to their game plan of pinning the Bury wingers back, helped by great kicking from Josh Doonan, Mitch Newman and Ruari Clark. The tea, also provided quick ball for the wings, which worked a treat.

The U14 played some good rugby for much of the game but were undone by errors.
The try was scored by Charlie Gabriel who crossed from a five yard scrum to touch down.
ST Neots U13s visited Bury and came away with a 44-10 win.
Hard work from the St Neots pack was soon rewarded when skipper Sam Hitchin went over in the corner to score his first try of the day and set the tone of the match.
Further first half tries by George Haverson, Ben Rodgers and Ian Donald gave the young Saints a comfortable 24-5 lead at the break. Four changes at the break by the Saints coaches did nothing to disrupt their dominance and more tries followed. Ben Thompson and Rodgers both cross the line and it was left to Hitchin to finish where he started with two tries to close the game.
