Stockwood were celebrating again after quick handling from the backs led to Brandon Lewsey going over, James Hankey adding the extras for 22-0.

From the restart, Park went straight on to the attack, Beattie and Jason Mitchell combining for Alex Lovell to score, Hankey converting.

Northampton then produced some pressure of their own, crossing for a converted score that made it 29-7 at the break.

The hosts added a converted consolation to make it 34-14, but it was too late.
