5 Previewed Fixtures
Berkhamsted secured a highly impressive 25-18 over the unbeaten Felsted to maintain their own unbeaten record, they had to come from behind to do it but showed great character to secure the victory.
Kirkham were equally impressive as they met Abingdon, who have been in fine form. However Kirkham were not about to give up their proud unbeaten record, and secured a superb 42-14 win.
Sedbergh also remain unbeaten, after they secured another big win, 48-24 against the in form Barnard Castle. Barnard Castle arguably won the battle up front but were powerless to prevent the Sedbergh backs from wielding their magic.
Bromsgrove maintain their superb unbeaten record, they were given a really stern test by Stowe, who are very much in form, but came out as 18-11 victors.
Wellington College were also back in business after that defeat to Sherborne last week, they beat Eton College 27-5.
A stunning 70-5 win for Dame Allan’s over Harrogate Grammar was one of the real highlgihts over the weekend, as was Sir Thomas Rich’s 55-7 win over Old Swinford Hospital.
A word should also go to Campion, who are in fine form this year, they picked up another win on Saturday, 19-5 against St George’s College, Weybridge.
