Nottingham Moderns 1st XV 11 Market Rasen & Louth 1st XV 50

RASEN maintained their position at the top of the league with an emphatic win at Nottingham Moderns, but it was far from plain sailing in a match that turned out to be the proverbial game of two halves.

Playing up the hill in the first half, the red and greens started at a high tempo and soon had their hosts back pedalling as they went through the phases with a high level of efficiency.

With eight minutes gone, Dave Starling opened the scoring after good work from the forwards and Matt Neesham added the conversion.

After making such a bright start the Rasen game rapidly deteriorated into a catalogue of errors with missed tackles, lackadaisical passing and an inability to find touch.
