Beaconsfield put in a good display against league leaders Newbury Blues but ultimately lost 36-16 in the South West 1 East Division.

The game began at great pace with Beaconsfield holding the visitor's and indeed pushing them back into their own half, all the time Newbury were trying to come through the middle, but Beaconsfield were determined and from a scrum in the Newbury 22 got the ball out to the right where Dan Cady went over for the first try which was converted by Aled Lewis for a 7-0 lead before Lewis scored a penalty to make it 10-0.

Next to score was Aled himself with a penalty just on the 22 which he dispatched quite easily 10-0. Newbury were looking a little bemused at this point not quite knowing what was happening.

There were several stoppages for injuries which held up the game in this first quarter.

Another penalty occurred this time on the Newbury 22 in their attempt to stop an attack, Lewis took the penalty, 13-0. The visitors certainly hadn't anticipated quite the number of attacks that Beaconsfield produced with their running backs.

Newbury finally got into the Beaconsfield 22 and got the ball over the line for 13-5 before Lewis kicked another penalty for a 16-5 lead and a shock was on the cards.

However, Newbury's half-time team talk did the track and the Berkshire side were rampant after the break, not giving Beaconsfield a sniff for a 36-16 win.

Beaconsfield are next in action on February 9 against Old Centralians away (2.30pm).
