Once again Smith capitalised on good attacking play from the backs to add another score before Matt Hefferan crossed the try line.

A period of good Deeping defence stopped the flow but Hefferan soon crossed again with James Anderson then getting on the scoresheet to make it 36-0 at half time.

The pattern continued into the second half as James Turner quickly joined the try-scorers.

The visitors held their line until the final 10 minutes when a flurry of tries gave the scoreline a flattering gloss to Huntingdon.

Karl Smith completed his hat-trick then ran in a further two tries to bring his personal tally to five with Joe Costello - who also added points with the boot - also touching down.

Anderson's conversions completed the point scorers in a fine Stags performance that saw Hefferan named man of the match for a strong display.
