CONFERENCE LEAGUE SOUTH

OXFORD Cavaliers saw their three-match winning streak end with a battling 44-20 home defeat to leaders Sheffield Hallam Eagles.

Cavaliers led 16-14 at the break, but were sunk by the Eagles’ second-half onslaught.

Having lost 80-18 in Sheffield on the opening day of the season, this represented a big improvement for Oxford.

Ashley Brown, Wes Newton, Ed Vickers and Wise Rokobatitoa scored Cavaliers’ tries in an entertaining clash at Oxford RFC.

Andy Winfield and Jim Roden kicked a conversion apiece, but it was not enough to prevent unbeaten Sheffield running away with the match.

OXFORD Cavaliers A are still searching for their first win after going down to a 52-48 defeat at home to Gloucestershire Warriors in the West of England Premier League.
