Your News National League 1 review

Sixty- one percent of fixtures from the first 11 rounds of action in National One had resulted in wins for the home side. On Saturday, though, it was a straight

50:50 home/ away split from the eight games played across the division. League leaders Ealing were one of the four sides to be successful on the road, but

they had to pull out all the stops to subdue hosts Tynedale. A try in each half for prolific wing Phil Chesters helped the Londoners to an 11th win in 12 outings.

Ealing now boast a nine- point gap at the top of the division over Fylde, who fell to a 16-10 home defeat at the hands of Rosslyn Park. Visiting fly- half Ross

Laidlaw was again in inspired form with the boot, landing three penalties and the conversion to John Rudds try.

Park move up to third in League One as a result, ahead of Coventry on points difference. Coventry have charged up the table in recent weeks, their derby win

over local rivals Birmingham & Solihull propelling them a further two places up the table. A Championship fixture just two years ago, the game at the Butts

Park Arena was watched by a seasons best crowd of 1,193.

Elsewhere, Jersey made light work of Cambridge to win 54-13 at Volac Park, Macclesfield and Blaydon ended five- game losing runs by beating Blackheath

and Wharfedale respectively, and Sedgley Park came out on top against Stourbridge in a thrilling contest that produced 12 tries and 79 points.
