Saints' youngsters have been performing well over the national leagues this weekend, collecting a sextet of wins with their respective loan teams.

First up, in National League 2 North, Fraser Strachan and Paddy Ryan turned out for Leicester Lions and secured a comfortable win over Luctonians. Ryan was named as the Rugby Paper's Star Man after a pleasing performance at Mortimer Park.

Toby Trinder, who is currently with National League One side Ampthill RUFC, played another 80 minutes for the side as they secured victory on the road at Loughborough Students.

Staying in National League One, Ehren Painter and Devante Onojaife turned out for Cambridge RUFC this weekend, with the young prop crossing the whitewash while Onojaife came off the bench for a good performance. 

Scrum-half Tom Emery travelled to Fylde with Coventry RFC and helped the side to secure their impressive 64-0 victory with a hat trick of scores.

Into the Championship and Saints teammates went head to head as Bedford Blues faced Nottingham. Dual-registered Jordan Onojaife turned out for the Blues and found himself on the winning side as they hosted Nottingham Rugby, who had Will Allman and Alex Moon amongst their ranks.

Finally, James Fish also turned out in the Championship this weekend, playing for Cornish Pirates as they secured a win over Hartpury College.

Academy Manager Simon Sinclair said that the weekend's results were extremely pleasing to see.

"I'm very pleased with all the lads' performances over the weekend.

"We're building some great relationships with the loan clubs and it's a brilliant opportunity to get the younger guys some consistent game time.

"It's great to see the guys getting good experiences of senior rugby and it's even more pleasing to see them getting the wins. 

"I'm very happy so far."
