Romford & Gidea Park’s under-12s were at home in a triangular of games with Enfield and Basildon on Sunday.
It was only the second weekend of games this season and Romford wanted to build on their great performance from the previous week.
They got off to a strong start in their first game against Basildon thanks to tries from Warren Petrie, Freddie French, Shayden Smith, Kyian Jeffery and a hat-trick from Ben Okonkwo.
Petrie and French went over in the first half for Park, but Basildon also crossed the whitewash.
The second half was all Romford, though, as they proved too strong for their rivals and scored another five tries for a 7-1 win.
Romford made it a perfect day as they also sealed a 5-0 win against Enfield with a brace from Petrie and further tries from Finlay McKeown, Okonkwo and William Huntingford.
The Park youngsters scored twice in the first half and three times after the restart.
