Douglas suffer at Broughton Park

Vagabonds beaten at Heaton

Douglas’ big game against Broughton Park in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division One ended in a 41-7 defeat as the hosts closed the gap at a very congested top of the table.

Douglas were unable to shake off their travelling blues and were 34-7 down by half-time with a Guy Wood try and a Bryn Snellgrove conversion their only high point.

They played much better in the second half and only conceded one further score but were unable to break down a well organised home defence.

Things weren’t so good for Vagabonds on the road either.

Their journey in Division Two took them to mid table Heaton Moor where they lost 61-7.

Vagas’ only ray of sunshine on an otherwise dark day was a popular try from veteran prop Rob Martin, which was converted by Cam Inglis.
