DESPITE being beaten for the third week in a row, Windermere at least managed to claim a losing bonus point in their 24-17 Cumbria Division One defeat at Workington on Saturday.

After being heavily beaten in their previous two matches against Whitehaven and Cockermouth, Mere gave a much better account of themselves on this occasion and should go into Saturday’s match against Hawcoat Park at Dawes Meadow with some confidence restored.
