Difficult conditions at the Athletic Ground proved a real leveller in the weekend’s top versus bottom encounter between runaway league leaders Richmond and struggling Westcombe

Park. Richmond averaged over four tries per game going into the clash but could manage just one against their determined opponents whose resistance only cracked when winger

James Greenwood went in at the corner approaching the hour mark.

Second- placed Old Albanians, who have a game in hand, closed the gap at the top to ten points after a bonus- point win at Taunton. Matt McLean scored a try and kicked twelve points

as Worthing also bagged a bonus point from a visit to the West Country following a 32-13 win over Lydney, which plunges the Gloucestershire side further into trouble at the wrong end

of the table.

Henley, though, kept in touch in the race for the second promotion spot with a maximum return at Dry Leas against Launceston. With Hartpury losing at home to Shelford – Taniela

Bakoso scored a hat- trick for the visitors - and Clifton going down to a 9-5 defeat at Hertford, the West Country sides were only spared an unwanted whitewash by Redruth and Dings

Crusaders.

The Reds and Dings were the only sides of the seven in the division that hail from the rugby stronghold to emerge victorious. An iBarnes, while Dings also scored all of their points before the break in an 18-8 win at home to Southend.
