MK Forwards lay the foundation to a strong win against a good Towcester team on a sunny cold morning.
MK lost captain Brad Watson in the first minute to a head injury, which saw Ellis Stokes fit in at 10 superbly all day. Eli Oates got the game off to a good start as he drove through a few tackles and reached over the line. Harris Irving made a searing break to add a second before Stan Brooks crashed over after a really good set piece line out move from the forwards. The boot of Yannis Hamilton converting 2 of the 3 tries.
A fantastic break by Harry Ryan set up more good play to allow Taylor Weatherill to storm over the line and again Hamilton added the extras.

MK made 7 changes and this disrupted the defence as Tows came roaring back with 2 superb backline tries. But MK settled down and Harris Irving scored 2 carbon copy tries as he broke from deep after great work from Oliver Calvey. This was interspersed with some great defensive work from Dan Fitton and the ever excellent Jo Best
Ryan HArris Westrope Oliver Bell Rian Kavanagh all made great impacts off the bench. Seb Illingworth and Trestin Tamakloe also maintained a great presence in the scrum. Seb doing some great work in the loose too.
More good build up work from Noah Howard Birt and Isaac Pooler gave Ed Gellet space to streak through the gap to score under the posts and Yannis converted again.
Towcester hit back again with another good break from the backs.
MK wrapped up the game as Adam Price (who had a brilliant game) moved in to centre and he combined well with Sean Biard to allow JoJo Monaghan to race away from the defence to score another converted try.
Harry Ryan rounded off a great display by adding another score after a thundering run by Jack Johnstone as the clock went red
