Ttries came thick and fast with Stags crossing the line no less than five times. Barnaby Perks, Dave Drago, Stuart Gramage, Chris Cobber and Graham Peigton all put their names on the score sheet and Gramage was on target with four successful conversions.

At half time, leading 33-7, Stags knew the game was secure and got off to a dream start when Paul Butterfield loped down the touch line eluding several tackles to score near the corner.

The second half was less free-flowing. Stags made several good breaks and full back Barnard covered the ground well mopping up Peterborough's wayward kicking. Stags were only able to cross the line twice more with Check securing his hat-trick.

The hosts were gifted their sole second half score, when a clearance kick was blown back almost over the Stags defence setting up a soft home try.

Stags' last try under the posts gave Gramage an easy conversion to secure the well deserved win.
