U17s secure bonus point win against Finchley

Finchley struggled for squad numbers, but put in a valiant effort to contain Royston

Royston needed a bonus point win to keep the pressure on the leaders of the league

They weathered the storm of early pressure from the visitors and took advantage of the extra man as injury forced Finchley to play much of the first half with 14.

Set plays from 2 line outs saw 2 tries and 2 more secured the bonus point by half time

The second half saw a resurgent Finchley back to full strength and determined running saw them score in the corner

Ill discipline meant Royston played 15 mins with 14 players but they did score a 5th try capitalising on a mistake on Finchleys try line

The 5 points guarantee a top half and higher table finish than last season.

Full credit to Finchley and the spirit and endeavour they put into the game despite having the bare bones of a squad
