DMU Falcons suffered defeat in their Varsity match-up against the University of Leicester Longhorns who won 28-14.

In testing wet conditions, both sides suffered with ball retention, with the surface and the ball becoming wetter and more slippery as the game progressed.

The Falcons struggled to deal with the Longhorns’ running game, and were also caught out by their use of the onside kick.

The result was disappointing, especially after what was a very successful season for the Falcons.
