Ealing made maximum use of their game in hand to reduce the deficit between themselves and league leaders Jersey with a bonus- point win over Sedgley Park. Mike Cudmore’s men

now trail the Islanders by eight points. Phil Chesters crossed twice with Ealing’s other scores coming from Ronnie McLean- Dents and Sam Wardingley.

Chesters’ brace took him to 30 tries for the season – twelve more than his nearest challengers – Fylde duo, Oli Brennand and Nick Royle, who shone in their side’s 41-26 win over

Cambridge at the Woodlands. England Sevens ace Royle scored five tries and Brennand got two as Fylde recovered from conceding an early try to win well. Fylde are now level on

points with second- placed Ealing, and six clear of Macclesfield who narrowly missed out at Rosslyn Park. Park had to rely on a Mike Baxter penalty in the dying stages to rediscover

the winning feeling after a four game run without any success.

There were also home wins for Birmingham and Cinderford. The Bees kept alive their slim hopes of survival with a bonus- point win over basement club Barking. Wing John Lowden

grabbed a brace of tries and there were further scores for Jack Preece and replacements Sam Farmer and Dan Hawkes as well as a penalty try. Meanwhile, wing pair Lloyd Stapleton

and Nevaro Codlin both scored two tries apiece for Cinderford in a 31-15 win over Wharfedale, and it was honours even at Crow Trees between Blaydon and Coventry.
