A last minute try from back-row forward Nigel Mukarati ensured Stourbridge remain on course for an unprecedented clean sweep of bonus point wins in SSE National Two North. Approaching the halfway point of the season, the Saxons have yet to drop a single point, claiming all five points in each of their 14 wins to lead the division by a massive 13 points. Stourbridges latest success came away to Preston Grasshoppers who played their part in an entertaining clash. The Saxons won 35-23.

Second-placed Hull Ionians also took maximum points from their home fixture with Leicester Lions. Sam Wilson scored a try either side of half-time to help Ionians to the 38-20 victory.

Darlington Mowden Park move into third above Preston as a result of their 31-12 win over Sheffield Tigers at Dore Moor. Scrum-half Jack Nevile was the star of the show with a hat-trick of tries.

After failing to cross the whitewash in their previous league outing at home to DMP, Hull burst into life with a seven-try salvo away to Stockport. Hull had too much power and pace for Port who were blown away in the early stages. Hull raced to a 14-0 lead before two yellow cards in the space of three minutes temporarily halted their momentum. But a second Jim Wigglesworth try restored normal order and Hull went to win 49-24.

Caldy overcame the considerable handicap of losing hooker Christian Jones to a 25th-minute red card to win 17-13 away to Birmingham & Solihull. Two tries in quick succession approaching the end of the third quarter turned the tide in Caldys favour and they hung on for a memorable victory.

Stefan Shillingworths hat-trick inspired Dudley Kingswinford to a 32-27 win at home to Luctonians. DK had to come back from 27-10 down to register their fifth win of the season.

Huddersfield remain rooted to the foot of the table after narrowly losing out to Bromsgrove at Lockwood Park. A lone second-half try from Jon Critchlow proved the difference as Bromsgrove won 14-12.

Otley, though, came out on the right side of a tight scoreline after achieving the narrowest of victories at Westoe. First half tries from James Twomey, Adam Blade and Christopher Gemmell handed Otley the initiative before Westoe valiantly fought back despite the loss of flanker Haydn Richards to a 49th-minute red card. Otley, though, just had enough in reserve to hang on for a 20-19 victory.
