STAGS got off to a fantastic start in what looks like being a tightly-contested league despite turning in an unconvincing display.

Stags got off to a bad start when they conceded an early converted try and were barely able to get hands on the ball for the first 15 minutes. But they drew level through an Elliot Baldwin try after good work by Matt Durrant who converted. Good work by Ben Crean earned a penalty from which Durrant gave his side the lead.

Casuals kicked two penalties of their own before half time but a Doug Bentley try for Stags sent them in 15-13 ahead at the break.
