Otleys fine start to the season continued on Saturday with a 39-33 away win at Stockport. The Cross Green outfits entertaining brand of rugby brought them five tries in a match that appeared to be all but over in the early stages of the second half. Otley led 31-7 with 46 minutes on the clock but Port, without a win to their name this season, showed great character to claw their way back and earn a losing bonus point come the final whistle.

Otley are one of three sides with a maximum 15 points from 15 after three rounds of action. Stourbridge top on points difference and Luctonians also boast an unblemished record following respective away wins over Huddersfield and Hull. Stourbridge never really looked back once they had built up a commanding 16-0 lead over Huddersfield at half-time, while two tries in the last eight minutes earned Luctonians the five points.

Hull Ionians have also won their first three matches with the latest success coming away to Preston Grasshoppers. Ionians scored two tries one apiece for Mark Wigham and Sean Taylor while fly-half Chris Reakes supplied the rest of their points from the kicking tee.

The away side held the upper hand in a total of six of the weekends fixtures, with Darlington Mowden Park and Sheffield Tigers being the other winners on the road. A brace of tries from centre Cameron Mitchell eased DMP to a 32-12 win at Birmingham & Solihull, while 18 points from Tom Outram and Ryan Holmess try proved sufficient for the Tigers to see off a late surge from Westoe.

Dudley Kingswinford rallied from being 16 points behind early in the second half to record their maiden win of the season at home to Leicester Lions. Three unanswered converted tries saw them over the line. Bromsgrove opened their home campaign with a 39-23 victory against Caldy.
