RUAIRI Lynch’s hat-trick of tries could not save Oxford Cavaliers from a 44-30 defeat at Leicester Storm.

Cavaliers have now lost two from two in their debut season at this level, but at least showed their battling qualities.

The home side led 24-10 at half-time and made the game safe thanks to an eight-try display, plus six goals from the boot of Oliver Furniss.

Reece Williams (2), Frank Barlow, Oli Saville, Josh West, Joey Luttrull, Roddy Jonas and Tom McIntosh were the men to touch down.

Cavaliers responded with a treble from Lynch, and further efforts from Stuart Waknell, Chris Stables and Wesley Newton.

Stand-off Andrew Winfield added three conversions.
