Huntingdon saw their five-match unbeaten run in Midlands Division One East come to an end last Saturday.

Stags went down 29-13 at Newbold-on-Avon in a clash of two top-six teams.

All of their points were provided by Dan Malem, who went over for an interception try early in the second half.

He added the extras from the resulting conversion after previous guiding over two penalties in the first half.

The sole try reduced Huntingdon’s arrears to four points and, with a strong wind at their backs, they would have expected to make further inroads, but the two remaining scores both came from the hosts.
