Mixed openers for Manx sides
Douglas began their season with a bang, beating Sefton 34-21 away from home in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division One.
They also secured a bonus point after running in four tries.
Paul Leivers, Rob Todd, Ben Webb, Guy Wood and Mark McGee all crossed the line with Luke Hyland adding three conversions and a penalty.
Vagabonds’ first foray in the new Cheshire (South) Division saw them lose 43-28 in a high scoring game at Moore.
Vagas did, however, run in four tries and picked up a useful bonus point.
Josh Carine scored two of Vagas’ tries, with the others coming from Ekong Bell and Rob Leece.
Aidan O’Shea and skipper Leigh Kennaugh kicked one conversion each.
Ramsey also came away empty handed on their travels when they lost 35-16 at Heaton Moor.
Tries from skipper Dan Bonwick and Craig Long, plus two penalties from Scott Kneale, were insufficient to attract any bonus points.
