Hinckley 32-47 Worthing ( Away by 18)

79 points in total, away win by 15! Hinckley came away with a losing 4 try bonus point but may be ruing the penalty count against them. Leading 17-16 at the break , ex Ealing wing Richard Briggs, playing at 13, crossed for tries.

Jersey 35-15 Dings Crusaders ( Home by 15)

Jersey’s fine start to life in N2S continues. Overturning a half time 7-10 deficit, they cut loose to score 4 second half tries in this fine home win.

Newbury 7-81 Richmond ( Away by 30)

Well maybe I was being kind to Newbury! Last season in a pre season game, the Mond were on the back of a 50 point mauling. How times change. Three tries by wing Nick Barrett and a brace for Chris Davies and Guy Thompson comdemmed Newbury to 4 defeats from 4 starts.

Old Albanians 43-24 Canterbury ( Home by 15)

OA’s led by a man of the match performance by ex Saracen Paul Gustard saw off Canterbury in a fine 7 try display at Woolams.

Shelford 32-44 Southend ( Away by 8)

Southend full back Andy Frost was a busy boy Saturday! 5 Conversions,3 penalties and 2 tries to add to his 79th minute yellow card. Southend were in the lead all the way through in this 6 try win.

Westcombe Park 27-32 Henley ( Away by 30)

Closer than I thought! maybe Coombe are waking up after a slow start or maybe Henley took their foot of the gas? Combe picked up 2 points from this defeat as ex Chinnor 8 Zane Winslade scored a 76th minute try.
