Vagas lose but improve

And, true to form, the hosts retained their 100 per cent record with a 45-24 win.
Douglas trailed 31-10 at half-time with Nick Brooker crossing for a try and Bryn Snellgrove adding a conversion and a penalty.
In the second half, Douglas were equal to their hosts with Brooker keeping his remarkable scoring record going by bagging a second try and the forwards earning a penalty try. Snellgrove converted both.
