Biggleswade's league game against Northampton BBOB was postponed because their posts had blown down and no other pitch was available.

A trip to Fullerians - and a 58-0 win - was the third choice fixture when Dunstablians cried off too.

In the event it was one-sided but the players enjoyed the run out and ran in eight tries to rebuild some confidence.

Biggleswade travelled with just 14 players and after an impressive fly-half debut against Bedford Swifts, Adam Sewell again started at number 10.

Skipper Mark Rastrick moved into the centre and opened the scoring when he carved through the defence.

Tom O'Connor added a second and Sewell crossed soon after for a third.

Members of the back row also got in the act with scores from Peter Shea and James Buttigieg.

After the break, Sewell's kick over the defence allowed Frankie Thoday to hack on and slither over the line.

From the restart Andy Burke thundered back for another try.

The referee wisely decided that Fullerians had thrown in the towel after a plucky performance and called an early end to the proceedings.

The match marked the return of prop Russell Collarbone while pick of the forwards Iain Jones was man of the match.

This Saturday it is back to the serious stuff with a home league match against Long Buckby.

The match at Langford Road kicks-off at 2.15pm and the BBOB fixture should be played the following weekend.
