The hosts took the lead with a try, only for their rivals to hit back with a penalty and try to go 8-5 up.

The two sides then traded tries, with Campion slotting a penalty to level and adding their third try, which was converted, just before the interval for a 20-13 lead.

Mavericks opened the scoring after the restart with a penalty, only for Campion to reply with a bonus-point try, before the sides swapped converted tries to leave it 32-23 to the home side.

Campion added another converted try to go 16 points clear, but Mavericks had the final say with a converted try as it ended 39-30.

Dan Browne scored two tries for Campion, but Tom Morgan scored 25 points for the visitors and Flynn Marsden also went over.

Campion’s seconds romped to a 77-29 win over Millwall in their Essex Merit Table Division Three meeting.
