There was a tight encounter at the Miguel Hernández University ground in Orihuela as ITV Vega Baja Orihuela (pictured) were beaten 24-28 by Cartagena, with the home side having led 19-13 at half time.

The senior men’s teams of the San Javier Squalos and Totana have joined forces for this season, and the opener played at San Javier saw the SquaTot side have a tough baptism of fire as they lost 36-3 to Albacete.
