St Neots sent out a statement of intent by storming to a top-of-the-table triumph last Saturday to extend their perfect Midlands Division Four East (South) start.

Saints blew away Wellingborough OGs 43-8 on a windswept afternoon at The Common to record a fourth successive league victory.

It was a tight tussle in the opening 40 minutes as St Neots selected to play against the gale. Their pack performed heroically to keep Wellingborough out before Rory Dingemans provided the opening try.

The visitors responded with a penalty, but they were left chasing shadows in the second period as Saints dictated play.

Aiden Jordan burst through to touch down under the posts before Dave Hopkins gratefully collected a loose ball to score the third try after a lengthy Joe Woodgate kick was fumbled.

Nic Robinson sped away from the visiting full-back to get in on the try-scoring act before Jordan crashed over for a second score of the game.

Flanker Jordan Rook went over in the corner before Joe Woodgate saved the best until last with a fine individual effort.

Lewis Hall was successful with four of his seven conversion attempts for a Saints side who are out of action this weekend.
