St Neots bowed out of the Midlands Junior Vase last Saturday.

The local side were pipped 18-16 by Warwickshire visitors Harbury in a second-round clash at The Common.

Lewis Hall kicked Saints into the lead with a penalty before Jordan Rook touched down for a try which stemmed from a well-worked line-out routine.

Harbury hit back with their opening try before Hall responded with another penalty. That was cancelled out by a three-pointer from the away side, who then hit the front with a try on the stroke of half-time. They extended their advantage with a third score early in the second period.

Saints replied when Johnny Berwick powered in for a try after taking a quick tap penalty, but they couldn’t find another way through
