Sat 3rd Feb 2-30 pm KO - Wadworth 6X BBO Div 1

Newbury Stags fall just short in a competitive low scoring game

Stags again have a much-changed side due to injury, unavailability and 1st team call ups

Stags just miss out in closely fought game which was in the balance up to the final whistle, after a good start of which Stags had the best of the first 15 mins but were unable to turn their pressure into points, Witney break out of defence and make the break through when after several phases they score wide out on their left 0-5 18 mins

Witney put pressure on Stags defence but cannot break through the Stags defence, Stags get hold of the ball and a good run then kick and chase from James Lewis takes play into Witney’s 22, Witney clear but Stags are straight back on the attack and a good run from Rhys Davies takes him through the defenders and over to score 5-5 25 mins

For the remainder of the game both sides trade points with Witney just edging it by 7 points although Stags have several chances in the final minutes to win or at least draw the match
