New-look Oakham got their Midlands 2 East (South) campaign off to a winning start with a 30-10 home victory over Long Buckby at the Showground on Saturday.
With a new coaching team in place, headed up by Alun Meadows, and lots of new faces in the team line-up, the Oaks were eagerly anticipating the first game of the season.
