An enjoyable and competitive game took place at Kesteven Rugby Club on a dark autumnal Tuesday evening. NLD Vets exerted dominance over the Lincolnshire Senior XV at the set piece and in the more forward dominated areas of the game. However, the youthful Lincs side capitalised on any mistakes, both quickly and effectively, with scores out wide
At 70 minutes the game was 36-24 in favour of the Lincolnshire side. Unfortunately a couple of injuries leading to several positional changes for the NLD Vets in the final few minutes of the match allowed Lincolnshire to run in a further 4 tries.
