Worthing became the first side to beat Henley this season after a superb display at Rugby Park earned them a 49-5 victory. The Hawks arrived on the south coast having won all of their previous nine games with a bonus point. But they had their wings well and truly clipped by the Raiders whose six-try win will have given hope to all the other sides in the division. Scrum-half Joe Govett was the star of the show with 24 points from a try, five penalties and two conversions.

Hartpury College are now Henleys their nearest challengers following a 46-16 win at Lydney. In a match scarred by three red cards, left wing Stephen Reynolds and hooker Callum OConnell both got a brace of tries apiece for the Gloucestershire side who are now just three points off the top.

Canterbury achieved the highest score of the day after putting a half-century of points on Southend. The Kent club won 51-14; full-back Martin Beaumont enjoying a game to remember with four of his sides eight tries.

In what was Nick Warrens first game in charge as Director of Rugby, Barking turned in an improved performance against Clifton to pick up their first points of the season. The Essex outfit responded to the change at the top in positive fashion, claiming two bonus points from a 40-33 defeat at Goresbrook. Barking now trail Lydney by eight points and Southend by 12.

Taunton Barkings next opponents also claimed two bonus points from their 30-27 defeat at Bournemouth. Two late tries saw the Titans return home to the West Country with something to show for their efforts at Chapel Gate. Taunton outscored their hosts on the try count, four to three, but the Lions held on to register win number five this season.

Shelford were involved in their second tight game in as many weeks, but were unable to follow up their 22-21 win over Worthing the week before with victory at Chinnor. Chinnor conceded the first score but three converted tries in a devastating 15-minute first-half spell set them up for a 28-22 victory.

Dings Crusaders failed to score for the first time in 20 league games, the Bristol club going down to a 21-0 defeat away to Redruth.
