St Ives Roosters collected their first win of the new East Premier League season last Saturday.
The local side, who handed debuts to Fin Laing and Albiee Tayedzerwa, recovered from a nightmare start to triumph 32-24 at Bedford Tigers.
Several Roosters players were held up in traffic and they soon found themselves 16-0 down, but Ben Fleming touched down for a try on the stroke of half-time to launch the fightback.
Man-of-the-match Gabriel Edwards and stand-in skipper Tommy Newman then bulldozed their way over for tries as Roosters began the second half impressively.
A trademark solo try from Dave Sykes then put them ahead before the hosts responded with two quick scores of their own.
