St Albans Centurions put 72 points on Breckland Spartans to record their biggest win of the East Rugby League season so far.

Andy Lake’s side put the Spartans, who only joined the competitive leads this summer, to the sword, winning 72-16.

The gulf in experience was obvious from the start and tries came thick and fast throughout the game. The visitors did not have it all their own way, though, as the Spartans scored three tries in reply to Cents’ 13.

Coach Andy Lake said: “It was good to have a game where we were in almost complete charge; this allowed us to try out moves and set plays in a competitive atmosphere. We had a few players from the development team in the squad and they fitted in very well.

“Next week we will be playing top of the league St Ives Roosters, who only beat us by two points early on this season, so this victory has certainly given the team a lift for going into the next game.”
