Worthing had the bonus point in the bag after just 21 minutes as they romped to a 58-3 win at home to Clifton. It took Raiders only two minutes to get the scoreboard moving, prop Joe Burns crossing for the first of his two tries. He was quickly followed over the whitewash by left wing Alexander Nielsen who went on to complete a hat-trick in the second half. There were further scores for Matthew Miles, Jack Maslen, Robert Smith, Joe Govett and Peter Cleveland in a 10-try display that keeps Worthing firmly in the hunt for promotion.

Henley still lead the way at the top of the SSE National Two South table, but only by virtue of having a better points difference than Hartpury College. The Hawks slipped to their second defeat of the season at Redruth, the Reds showing real determination to win 17-11 in atrocious conditions at the Recreation Ground.

Hartpury had no such problems at home to Shelford, although they had to wait until five minutes from time before claiming the try-bonus point. Centre Seb Rodwell scored two of his sides five tries in a 42-7 victory.

Four straight wins has seen Launceston climb up to sixth in the table, the latest victory coming at the expense of basement dwellers Barking. Barkings cause was not helped by the dismissal of prop Nathan John five minutes from half-time, although, in truth, the Cornish All Blacks were already well in command at that point. Launceston led 35-0 following a brace from Josh Lord and three further tries when Barking suffered the double blow of losing John to a red card and Michael Anderson to a yellow. A second penalty try of the afternoon was all Launceston could muster in a scrappy third quarter but they went on to add three more tries for a final scoreline of 61-0 in their favour.

Chinnor are level with Launceston on 33 points after overcoming stubborn resistance from Southend to win 22-5. In the only other game of the day, a try double from hooker Sam Rogers helped Canterbury to a 29-10 success at home to Taunton.
