Taking on the leaders of Midlands 3 East (North), Melton Mowbray, Sleaford Rugby Club First XV gave a good account of themselves in the first half, and worked hard to restrict the hosts’ scoring opportunities. At half time the score was 17-3 to Melton.

However, after the break, Sleaford struggled to cope with the strength and skill of the Melton side, with the hosts running in a further 43 unanswered points to win the game easily, 60-3.
