Rugby made it seven wins on the bounce with a superb victory over high flying Royston – leapfrogging the Hertfordshire side in process to head the table themselves.

Tuesday evening’s match-up was a re-run of the previously abandoned game from mid-November, and only went ahead after a late inspection confirmed the pitch to be playable, after local temperatures had begun to plummet.
