March Bears 11 Aylestone Athletic 34
BEARS captain James Griffin pointed out that "training wins matches" following his side's disappointing home defeat to Aylestone on Saturday.
The visitors' pack dominated the game and allowed their backs to make smart runs that kept the Bears on the back foot throughout.
It was the Bears who opened the scoring thanks to a penalty from Andy Larham but Athletic hit back with two quick tries.
