St Ives 29 Biggleswade 0

On a bleak, sodden, rain-swept afternoon Biggleswade sank without trace. It was another dismal afternoon when little went right.

Biggleswade travelled in hope but with a very different side that played the week before. The back row was completely different and there were several changes in the three-quarters.

Making his debut at scrum-half was Tom Chalk. He played through the mini section and has now decided he wants to play again. Tom had a promising afternoon but needs to get fitter and more streetwise.

Playing down the slope but against the biting wind, Biggleswade conceded an early try and two more in the first half.

After the break with the elements at their back, Biggleswade expected better things but it just never happened. Andy Burke went close as did Mark Rastrick and Adam Sewell but the St Ives defence held firm.

Biggleswade travel to Luton to play Stockwood Park this Saturday in the penultimate league match with just pride at stake.
