UCS Old Boys can enjoy having this Saturday off with no games scheduled in Herts/Middlesex One.

Owing to the next round of fixtures in various national cup competitions taking place this weekend, there are no league matches.

With UCS not in national cup action, it means they are not in action again until they visit St Albans on November 17.

Old Boys go into their mini-break having suffered an agonising 20-12 defeat at high-flying Wasps last Saturday.

Matt Dawson crossed the whitewash in defeat for UCS, who were also the beneficiaries of a penalty try.

Despite their best efforts, the eight-point margin of defeat against Wasps meant Old Boys even missed out on taking a losing bonus point from the match.

UCS will have to wait until November 17 to put that disappointment behind them, but will no doubt be grateful for the rest from league action this weekend and will hope it gets them in the best possible shape to face St Albans.
