March Bears' first team hit the top of the league with an excellent 22-10 win at Anstey on Saturday.
The Bears had to come back from behind to take the points and it was the home side who opened the scoring with a try, after the ball was quickly moved out to the wing.
With 10 minutes left in the half, March needed a response and they got it when Jason Rainbow chased down a kick and touched down a sensational try.
Once again, Anstey began the second half the better side and they scored another try 15 minutes after the break to regain their lead.
But this time, the March team produced a comeback that was to seal the points. David Crooke was outstanding as he broke through the home defence on several occasions and set up the backs for waves of attacks.
Fittingly, Crooke scored the try that levelled the scores and the Bears didn't look back. Matt Day touched down for a converted try and the Bears led 17-10.

Anstey produced a spirited effort to get back in to the game and Ash Howlett needed stitches after he produced a try-saving tackle.
But the game was made safe by the battling Bears when Mark Arnold took a high ball and tore through the home defence to score another try.
Tomorrow, the Bears' first team travel to Boston for a friendly while the second team entertain Sleaford. Squad training continues at 7.30pm on Wednesdays and all players are encouraged to attend.
