Leaders end Oaks’ winning run

Have your say

Oakham 12 Newark 29

OAKHAM’s six-game unbeaten run was brought to an end by league leaders Newark at the Showground on Saturday.

The Oaks took an early lead when Martin Stimson drove over and James Padley added a late try for the hosts but in between Newark showed why they have a 100 percent record this season, running in four tries and kicking a penalty.

The defeat leaves Oakham six points behind second-placed Market Bosworth.

Oakham face local rivals Melton at home on Saturday.
