What happened away from Vallis Way this weekend?

Barnes 13-23 Canterbury

Barnes’ slide continues as Canterbury’s gets better. No bonus point but Canterbury’s stand off Phil Gibson was the visitors hero kicking 13 points to condemn Barnes to their 5th loss in 6 games

Clifton 6-6 Dings Crusaders

A close game that Clifton will be glad they didn’t lose as they maintain their 100% home record. Clifton went in 6-3 up , but too many turnovers and errors led to a tight game and one that Dings should have won. A missed opportunity.

Henley 39-6 Shelford

On the face of it a shock result. A 5 try victory was orchestrated by new fly half James Combden, who ended his 1st XV debut with 17 points.

Richmond 20-21 Lydney

Richmond only seemed to start this game in the 2nd half. Lydney went into half time leading 7-0 and , a 68th minute converted try by Lydney open side Will Jones was the difference between the sides.

Southend 61-0 Bridgwater & Albion

Southend brushed aside Bridgwater with this 9 try display, leaving Bridgy stuck to the bottom of N2S

Worthing 8-6 Rosslyn Park

A game that went down to the wire. A scoreless first half, saw Park’s fly half Laidlaw think he had the game won with a 79th minute penalty only for Worthing’s own fly half go over in the 80th minute for a winning try and put a dent in Park’s promotion hopes.
