The form book was turned upside down in National League One at the weekend as five of the top six sides all lost. Only Ealing Trailfinders escaped being on

the receiving end of a shock result, as the league leaders ran out 29-22 winners at home to Stourbridge.

The biggest surprise came at Woodlands where Fylde suffered a second consecutive loss. Mark Nelsons men, who had been beaten away to Blaydon the

previous week, became Barkings first victims since the opening day of the season. The dismissal of the visitors replacement forward, Francis Ambrose, with

still nearly an hour left to play made the result even more remarkable.

Second- placed Macclesfield got turned over at home to Tynedale, who now move into the top four, and Blackheath jumped above Sedgley Park - and up two

places into fifth - after a game of 11 tries that resulted in a 41-34 win over the Tigers at Rectory Field. There were plenty of thrills, too, at the Butts Park Arena

where the lead changed hands eight times in the game between Coventry and Cambridge, who emerged victorious thanks to Tom Fidlers late try.

Elsewhere, Jersey bounced back from the points deduction handed to them by the RFU because of an administrative error to comfortably beat Wharfedale,

two tries from full- back John Lowden helped Birmingham & Solihull to victory over Blaydon and Rosslyn Park were once again able to call on Ross Laidlaws accurate boot to see them home against Cinderford.
