Redruth won at Polson Bridge for the first time in league rugby to complete the double over Cornish rivals Launceston. Roared on by a large travelling support, the Reds held off a spirited comeback in the second half from the All Blacks to squeeze home by the smallest of margins. Paul Thirlby opened the scoring with a penalty and then converted a penalty try as the visitors took a 10-0 lead inside the first half an hour. Launceston were down to 13 men at one stage following yellow cards to Ben Hilton and Neil Bayliss. However the All Blacks were given a chance to get back into the game when the Reds influential No.8 Tom Duncan also saw yellow in the first half. Kieron Lewitt punished the visitors further with a three-pointer from the subsequent penalty on 34 minutes and he added two more penalties after the break, but the Reds held firm in the final quarter to win 10-9.

Worthing ran in six tries to take their tally for the season to 106 in a 43-15 win away to Bournemouth. Openside Samuel Hewick scored a hat-trick for the Raiders who suffered the loss of three men sent to the sin-bin in the space of four second-half minutes.

Second-placed Henley slipped a further point behind following their failure to score four tries in a 25-15 win at Lydney. Fly-half Will Robinson was the star of the show for the visitors with a 15-point personal haul from a try, two penalties and two conversions.

Hartpury College responded well from their heartbreaking defeat at home to Canterbury the week before with a 27-11 win at Taunton. Centre Craig Jackson dominated the scoring for the visitors with a try, three conversions and two penalties.

Shelford also won away thanks to a double from Aki Lea. A 14-13 success at relegation-threatened Southend continued their unbeaten start to 2013.

Former British Lions and Scotland international Craig Chalmers started life as Chinnor head coach with a 31-18 win at home to Canterbury. Will Millett impressed his new boss with a brace of tries and there were further scores for Matthew Goode and David Hughes.

Dings Crusaders celebrated their first taste of action for nearly a month with a bonus-point win at home to basement side Barking. Tries by Augustin Slowik, James Oakley, Ed Hack and Matty Wright secured maximum points for the Bristolians.
