Deepings RFC 7 Sleaford 29

NLD Senior Cup

SATURDAY’s defeat to Sleaford was a disappointing result for Deepings but on the plus side much-needed game time was gained before they return to league action.

Sleaford made it quite clear in the opening minutes of the game that they would take the game to Deeping, opening the scoring in the first 10 minutes with some tremendously frantic rugby.

Deepings were fifteen points down at half time with a further two tries from the visiting side in the second half. Deeping Number 8 Ali Shaw answered with a single try late in the second half which was converted by fly-half Nick Dobie.

The IXV face Rugby St Andrews at home tomorrow with a 3pm kick off.

S&L Development Side 50 Deepings Saxons 5

THE Saxons travelled to Corby for a real a test against a Stewarts & Lloyds mixed team of 1st XV and 2nd XV players.

Deepings were travelling light with only 15 players though the much swelled Stewarts & Lloyds side lent some subs as the Deepings players started to suffer with injuries.

Deepings only score came from a superb single handed try charging through the S&L defence carrying three players with him to cross for the only points.
