Northampton Mens Own RFC
Northampton Casuals RFC
At Mens Own the first XV started brightly with a converted try scored by Andy Irvine on 13 minutes (playing on the wing this week) from a long pass where he ran in to the corner. Try was converted by Aiden Lawrence from the touchline with a very impressive kick. The Casuals then went 0-14 into the lead with a score by prop Lee Lawrence (his 11th of the season), converted by Aiden Larence on 20 minutes. Andy Irvine scored his second try on 32 minutes with a strong run through the Mens Own defence again converted by Aiden Lawrence so 0-21. The Mens Own scored their first try of the game on 45 minutes to make the half time score 5-21.

Rhys Hughes scored a pushover try from No 8 on 49 minutes to extend the Casuals lead to 5-26. Mens Own replied on 60 minutes with an interception to race through under the posts. Score 12-26. On 65 minutes Jake O'Doherty scored a try (converted by Aiden Larnec) to extend Casuals lead to 12-33. Casuals then thought the game was won and went to sleep. They also lost discipline in the last quarter and became frustrated with the referee as the Mens Own scored two late tries both of which they converted to make the final score 26-33.
