Anselmians took an early lead with a penalty through Simon MASON
. However, for the rest of the half it was Anselmians who were on the back foot with Sandbach scoring two converted tries and a penalty to give a half time score of 6-17. To their credit, Anselmians, who were not at full strength, gave Sandbach a game and were unlucky to have two men sin binned for offences which Sandbach somehow managed to escape. Sandbach proved to be too strong and they went further in the lead with a penalty and a try to give a score of 6-25.
Just before the end Anselmians got a consolation try from fly half Simione Mafi, with Mason converting to give a final score of 13-25.
