Droitwich put in a gallant display despite losing 32-10 to unbeaten league leaders old laurentians. 
The hosts scored an early penalty but with spas first attack an infringement by the hosts have Bobby Scott-Walker the chance to level the points. 
Laurentians hit back with some good play however an interception by Scott-Walker, gave him the opportunity for a fifty metre sprint to fend off defenders to score under the posts and convert the try himself. 
The hosts were always attacking with tenacity and aggression, something which spa lacked considerably in both attack and defence. Laurentians pulled a try of their own back before half time to trail 10-8 at the break. 
With spa now against the wind they knew it would be difficult, good pick and go's by Ross Midegeley and Nick Godfrey Gained valuable metres but spa kept losing the ball at the breakdown. Gregor Macleod at full back put in a great display under constant pressure to relieve the pressure for the young spa side. However the hosts soon scored three quick tries to kill the game off. 
Some good running by Luke topping was in vain as spa just couldn't get any fluency into the game with constant penalising against. After the game spa knew they could of really took it to the hosts in the second half but a lack of belief and fitness took its toll. 
Spa now have a week off to re-evaluate and hopefully finish the season with a flurry.
