Herts/Middlesex One: Bank of England 67 UCS Old Boys 5
UCS Old Boys ended their Herts/Middlesex One campaign with a 67-5 defeat at Bank of England.
Despite a brave effort in the opening half, Old Boys found themselves 24-0 down at the break after Bank scored three tries and a penalty.
The hosts continued to perform well in the opening minutes of the second half, scoring a further three tries to move 41-0 clear.
UCS skipper Tom Arnold then left the field after suffering a nasty knock to the head, a further blow for the visitors.
