The Saints defied a numerical disadvantage after losing hooker Ben Arnold to injury just before the break and not having a forward replacement to call on. It was a second setback of the game after they had earlier seen Ed Hunt depart hurt, but it wasnt enough to upset a high-class performance against tough opposition from Corby. Skipper Matt Cartwright said: Every player in the squad produced an incredible performance against a very good team, in extremely difficult conditions and being a man down for so long. We played exciting and attacking rugby to secure a very convincing win and the buzz is definitely back at St Neots. Joe Woodgate kicked Saints ahead before following up with a fine individual try. He then turned provider to pick out Luke Warburton with a long pass before the winger raced down the line to touch down in the corner. The visitors hit back before Saints responded with a double-salvo of their own courtesy of Grant Hobbs to open up a 22-point cushion. Hobbs accepted a Woodgate off-load for his first try and was then the beneficiary of an Adam Porter interception for his second. But the early departure of Arnold meant Saints faced a tough task against the wind in the second period. They made light of the situation as Rhod Howcroft charged over to provide further breathing space before Stewart & Lloyd bagged a couple of tries of their own. Porter was denied when held up over the line, but Saints didnt have long to wait for another try as Will Smith rounded off a fine team move following the resulting five-metre scrum. The visitors went over again to secure their bonus point, but it was Saints day as Adam Peel emphasised when completing the scoring with a well-deserved try. Woodgate also guided over two conversions. Saints climbed to third-from-bottom ahead of a trip to Daventry this Saturday.
