Rosslyn Park remain top of SSE National League One after a 20-14 at home to Esher on Friday night. A crowd of 1.102 turned up to see this pulsating local derby played out under floodlights. Back-row forward Luke Campbell capped a fine individual performance with a try, which fly-half Sam Katz converted to add to his two earlier penalties to hand Park a 13-9 half-time lead. A 56th-minute penalty try, again converted by Katz, put some daylight between the teams but a late try from Andy Wright earned Esher a deserved losing bonus point.

Ealing ensured Park’s lead at the summit was reduced to just one point with a 59-17 victory over Sedgley Park the following day. Sam Wardingley ran in five of Ealing’s nine tries against a Tigers side that has worryingly conceded 129 points in its last two outings.

Blaydon’s impressive start to the season shows no sign of relenting after a first-ever win at Dockham Road. Flanker Robert Bell contributed two tries and prop Robbie Kalbraier also crossed the Cinderford line in a 24-10 win for the buoyant north-east outfit.

Cinderford slip to sixth as a result of their first home defeat of the season, and they are now one place below Old Albanians who picked up their eighth try-bonus point in a 46-31 win at bottom club Cambridge. Surprisingly for a team so high in the table, Old A’s boast an identical ‘points for’ and ‘points against’ record. Right wing James Spiers scored a hat-trick for the visitors, while centre Terry Adams got his name on the scoresheet twice as Old A’s made light work of the red card shown to scrum-half Stefan Liebenberg with only half an hour of the contest gone.

Coventry jump four places up the table to seventh following their 27-11 win at home to Wharfedale. Leading scorer Cliffie Hodgson bagged 17 points through a try, three conversions and two penalties. The former Rotherham player now tops the division’s points-scoring chart with 138 for the season – just under half his side’s overall points total.

Macclesfield, Tynedale and Loughborough Students all won to ease their worries at the wrong end of the table. Tynedale stopped their six-game losing streak in emphatic style with an eight-try, 45-10 win at home to Fylde. Macc earned a hard-fought 20-13 victory over Blackheath at Priory Lane, and Loughborough Students won at Richmond by the narrowest of margins.
