Ealing Trailfinders announced their arrival in National League One in emphatic fashion with a 35-3 win at Birmingham & Solihull. The Bees, relegated from

the Championship last season, had no answer to the performance the champions of Two South who were playing their first game at this level of rugby.

Record- breaking Phil Chesters, scorer of an incredible 70 tries in 2010/11, started where he left off with a ninth minute try to add to an earlier effort from

fellow wing Owen Bruynseels. Tries at the beginning and end of the second half ensured the Londoners left Damson Park with maximum points.

The biggest crowd of the opening weekend came at Woodlands where 870 spectators turned up to watch Fylde narrowly win the battle of the division's new

boys. Two North champions Fylde and Two South runners- up Jersey shared eight tries in a compelling contest that saw England Sevens star Nick Royle get

on the scoresheet twice.

Three other games in the first round of fixtures were separated by a single score, with Barking’s win at home to Blaydon being the most dramatic. A Chris

Ashwin touchline conversion in the final minute settled the contest at Goresbrook, while Coventry and Rosslyn Park just did enough to ward off the threat of

Cinderford and Blackheath respectively. Elsewhere, Macclesfield and Tynedale secured impressive bonus- point victories at home and Sedgley Park

recovered from a rocky start, which saw them trail Cambridge by 14 points in as many minutes, to win 24-39.
