First up for Leighton were the Leicester Huntsmen, and they were brushed aside by 45-13 as Steam made a great start.

Their high-scoring ways continued into the second game, when they doubled up against Coventry Cougars. The 44-14 win extended their record to 6-2.

Steam saved the best until last though, running riot against Lincolnshire Longhorns. Their utterly dominant performance on the day was completed with a mighty 71-7 win to extend their season’s record to 7-2.

The results see Leighton climb into second in the table.
