A slightly depleted Burntwood squad made the journey over to Newport (Salop) to face a home side also weakened by a number of 1st choice players.
The game was to prove to be a good competitive encounter, but with the Burntwood side coming off second best at all to many ruck or breakdown situations.
Newport scoring 12 points in the first half, with Jack Foden
running a good line, at speed to break through and add five for Burntwood.
The second half saw 2 further tries for Newport.
Jack Butcher produced a true 1.5M scrumhalf sneak to score Burntwood a deserved second try. The conversion by Callum Heath finishing the points tally.
Final score: Newport 22 - Burntwood 12
