Two teams are definitely smiling after a fascinating round of matches on Saturday the 10th. Barking after they kept their 100% record, and Ealing after a tough away-win pushed them above Canterbury into third spot, and with one game in hand. Most games went with current form with the leaders all winning.
Barking beat Rosslyn Park 43-19 at home with a strong second half. Rosslyn will be disappointed as they feel they are contenders this year.
Barnes lost narrowly to Westcombe Park at home, 19-20, a poor start for our neighbours. To no-one’s surprise, Canterbury beat bottom side Bridgewater 31-18 at home. And Lydney also despatched strugglers Henley at home 30-20.
In mid-table Richmond jumped up by beating Worthing at home, 30-13, and second place Clifton took the points away at Shelford, 19-21.
