Loughborough Students promotion bid got off to the perfect start after they secured an opening day bonus point victory at home to Preston Grasshoppers.

But Leicester Lions, another side tipped as potential title contenders after they pushed hard for second spot in 2010/11, began their campaign in miserable

fashion. Rampant Harrogate put six tries on their hapless hosts who could only muster three points from the boot of Jon Boden in reply.

Another Yorkshire side to travel well on day one were Huddersfield who ran out 30-42 winners against newly promoted Stockport. Chris Johnson, top points

scorer in Two North last term, looks set for another fine season after recording a personal haul of 27 points in the match.

Big things are expected of Caldy and they did not disappoint following an opening day 38-20 win at home to Nuneaton. Otley, who joined the Nuns in

dropping down from National One, put the pain of relegation behind them to secure maximum points in a 24-3 win over Hull Ionians at Cross Green.

Bromsgrove fly- half James Curgenven starred with 17 points as his side beat fellow newcomers Sheffield Tigers in their National Two North debuts at Finstall

Park. Elsewhere, shocked Kendal were beaten with the last kick of the game when John Morris magnificently converted Charlie Merediths try for Luctonians

and, in another contest that went right down to the wire, David Haswell proved the hero for Westoe after a last- gasp try secured victory over Hull.
