Richmond go into Saturday’s clash against leaders Jersey in buoyant mood after three successive victories. The latest came at Westcombe Park, Richmond
winning 34-6 thanks to a dominant forward display and 19 points from the boot of Ross Broadfoot. Meanwhile, a crowd of 1,300 were kept on tenterhooks at
Rue des Landes where Jersey had to rely on replacement Brian Rennison’s last- minute try against Lydney to preserve their perfect start to the season.
Like Richmond, Old Albanians are on a three- game wining streak after adding Henley to their list of victims. Old A’s, who travel west to take on Lydney, won
50-23 against a Hawks side that needs to restore battered pride at home to Hinckley on Saturday.
Second- placed Ealing Trailfinders kept their unbeaten run going with a 28-12 win at Clifton and this weekend they return to Vallis Way to play Westcombe
Park. Clifton make the short journey to Taunton in the next round. Taunton go into the game on the back of a 74-22 victory over Newbury. Charlie Walker-
Blair matched the feat of Owen Bruynseels the week before by scoring six tries against the Blues, who at least picked up their first point of the season for
scoring four tries.
Andrew Frost made it a century of points for the season with a brace of tries in Southend’s impressive 36-28 win at Worthing, while Dings Crusaders were
also victorious on the road – 22-15 at Hinckley – and Shelford registered their first win, beating Canterbury 26-7.
