Stevenage 12, Lowestoft & Yarmouth 10 (abandoned after 79 minutes)

Much confusion reigns over the outcome of this abandoned match.

The powers-that-be will have to sort out the fall-out of a late second half melee caused by a group of local supporters charging into a minor on-field fracas.

That the referee felt he had to abandon the game is one for the authorities to deal with.

The trouble followed a try by Lowestoft and Yarmouth centre Myles McAlone who crossed in the corner and ran around almost under the posts for an easier conversion.

Had the conversion been taken the visitors would have salvaged a draw from an otherwise pretty average performance. But the kick was not allowed to take place by the referee, and now initial discussions seem to point towards a replay of the match on the next available weekend.

This depends on both teams' success in the RFU Intermediate Cup on October 13, when L&Y face Chiswick at home, which could mean a rematch on either November 10 or December 1, or even possibly into next year.

Stevenage were leading by four penalties to an unconverted first half try by Marc Thomas when McAlone scored his late try.
