Worthing increased their lead at the top of the SSE National Two South table by a single point to eight after they recorded a big win over Taunton and title rivals Henley failed to come away from Hartpury College with maximum returns.

Worthing ran in 10 tries in a 68-0 rout of Taunton – three of them being scored by No.8 Robert Smith. Scrum-half Joe Govett was accurate with nine conversion attempts.

Henley had the altogether more difficult task away to a Hartpury side that had climbed up to third on the back of a five-game winning run. It took a second-half try from Luke Carter to secure the win that almost certainly guarantees the Hawks a top two spot.

This weekend Henley welcome Dings Crusaders to Dry Leas, while Worthing travel to Cornwall to play Launceston. Dings boast the division’s top points-scorer in the form of Mark Woodrow, the well-travelled full-back taking his tally for the season to 270 – 18 more than Launceston’s Kieron Lewitt - with another nine points against Shelford on Saturday. Woodrow’s contribution was not enough, though, to save his side from defeat.

Launceston were kept scoreless for the first time this season as they fell to a 10-0 defeat away to Canterbury. Tries from Argentinian centre Juan Del Val and No.8 Willem Barrs saw Canterbury gain revenge for their defeat at the hands of the Cornish All Blacks back in November.

Chinnor returned to winning ways with a comfortable 33-12 win over Clifton. The Oxfordshire side got off to the best possible start after scoring directly from the kick off and went on to add three more tries, all of them converted by fly-half Will Millett.

Redruth also reversed a recent slump in form with a 38-22 victory against Southend at the Recreation Ground. Full-back Tom Nottman and No.8 Chris Fuca each grabbed a brace of tries and fly-half Paul Thirlby was successful with four of his five conversion attempts.

Finally, Lydney came away from their relegation battle with Bournemouth with four desperately-needed points. The Gloucestershire side are now two points ahead of the Lions who occupy the second and final relegation place but have a game in hand. Full-back Anthony Wicks converted Paul Price’s third-minute try and went on to add four penalties in a 19-8 win.
