Oadby-Wyggestonians 33 Biggleswade 5
Midlands Four East (South)
The sin binning of Ross Taylor in the last five minutes summed up the frustrations that Biggleswade are currently enduring. They did so much right but still came second by a wide margin.
Playing in South Leicester on a ground shared by the Tigers' training academy, Biggy started brightly but were soon 10 points down after a converted try and penalty by the home side.
However Biggleswade hit back with a well-worked try.
The ball went through several hands. Prop Lee Panter was involved twice. To catch and pass once in open play is pretty unusual. To do it twice in the same move is unheard of!

The enigmatic Karl Marshall was at the bottom of the pile as his friends helped him over the line. Like many in the side, he tackled hard but Oadby hit back straight away with another try.
After the break the home team added three more tries. One came from a pushover after a five-metre lineout.
Biggleswade have a week off from league action before playing BBOB in a rearranged game.
The match was postponed when the Northampton's side posts were blown down in a gale.
