Building on last week’s performance, Melton RFC Second XV earned another big victory over old rivals Market Bosworth on Saturday.

The game was keenly contested in the first 20 minutes, but the hosts gradually got on top despite losing two of their forwards Jeremiah and Evans early on.

Again it was teamwork that won the day for Melton and they scored 11 tries, with six converted. The scrum was dominant, allowing every player to go forward on the front foot.

Man-of-the-match Peters was involved in everything, running strongly, linking forwards and backs, and scoring two tries.

He was hard pushed by Adam Woolley who notched four tries, while Harper added four conversions before he was injured.

Melton had a strong-enough bench with Wayne Brookes, Lewis Brookes and Blagburn all coming on and making a contribution, enabling Warwick to step up to 10 to replace Harper.

The victory will give Melton further confidence for the league campaign to come and proved a good day to produce a terrific display in front of First XV coach Gareth Collins.

Melton: Jeremiah, Webster, Stewart (1), Chambers (1), M. Brooks, Evans, Kacmarczyk, Peters (2), Greaves, Harper (4 conv), Forfar, Freestone, Woolley (4), Hatfield, Warwick (2 conv), W. Brookes (2), L. Brookes (1), Blagburn.
