Stags U12s grafted hard in their first game and Sam Durnan managed the only try of a close first half. The match remained tight, until Durnan found space for a second try in the second period. Oundle snatched a consolation as Stags clung on for the win.

In the second, Durnan again gave Stags an early lead. Oundle hit back immediately and took the lead, with lots of open play it was no surprise when Durnan got Stags back on terms.

After the restart, Oundle scored once more, only for Durnan to add two to his tally to win it for Stags.
