Spartans II 0 v 24 Cheltenham Saracens

Saracens second string remained top if the league with a comfortable win over former giants Spartans.

The Sarries came out of the blocks fast a searing break by Paul Hewitt saw him blast past several tacklers to score. Ten minutes later former first team out side half saw a gap and strode over to score he added the extras. A third try was added before the break as Connor powered over. Half time 17-0.

The second half the Spartans played with great heart into the wind and limited the Sarries to one further try from Hewitt. The last 10 minutes Spartans dominated and it took a brilliant try saving tackle from Connor to stop their Spartans full back in full flight. Try as they might they couldn’t break down the Sarries defence.

Next week sees the league leaders travel to second place team Stow, when better rucking and more composure will be needed.
