Biggleswade 3 Stoneygate 43
Midlands Five East (South)
While bad enough, this result could have been worse!
Biggleswade had high hopes of winning this one but with six players missing were swamped by five converted tries in the first half.
They worked so hard in the second half that the Leicester outfit added just one try after the break. Biggleswade even got points on the board with a Mark Smith penalty.
Things were not good for even before the match started. With six key players out, prop Ian Flack pulled a hamstring in the warm-up. An injury to Noel Dukes saw Sean Barker step up to prop.

With three scrum halves unavailable, 52-year-old headteacher Phil Elcock again took on the role.
In the centre, Simon Rutt partnered Jimmy Hart before the break and Taig Norman there after.
Stoneygate's fly-half started by kicking everything. But once he realised that Biggleswade were weak up the centre, Stoneygate exploited the area.
They were good at support play and ran in three tries under the posts.
