St Neots Colts lost to Kettering 25-7 in their third league game of the season.

Kettering played well, throwing everything they had at Saints, but after holding the visitors to just eight points after 60 minutes, St Neots crumbled. They gave away a penalty in the second half and from then were on the back foot. As their heads went down, Kettering broke through with some superb demonstrations of tactical game play.

A late try from Kieran O'Donnell, pictured running the ball, was converted Andy Heathcote to put some points on the board, but it was too little, too late.
