Borough Juggers were looking for revenge for the 42-12 drubbing they received on the opening day of the season but got nowhere near it.

This time the lively Old Monks ran out overwhelming 74-0 winners at Thorney.

Prop Stuart Scott ran in from 60 metres to score the first of their 12 tries in the fifth minute and after that touchdowns arrived at regular intervals.
