Cambridge director of rugby Bob Crooks has praised his side's response to last week's 54-13 thrashing by Jersey.
"I know they're young," he told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. "But I wouldn't swap them for the world, even after last week's performance.
"We're in it together and the boys stood up."
Crooks was particularly pleased with the contribution of dual-registered Northampton Saints youngsters Anders Mogensen and Alex Day.
Scrum-half Day created two chances for wing Mogensen to cross the whitewash.
"Anders I thought was exceptional," said the Cambridge boss. "I thought his movement was outstanding.
"Alex fitted into what we did. I'm really pleased with him. Clearly he enjoys playing for us."
