Round-up of weekend rugby action
Romford & Gidea Park pulled themselves into a lower mid-table position in London One North with a home win over Luton at Crow Lane at the weekend.
Following their hard-fought success at fellow strugglers Ruislip a week earlier, Park held on for a 25-21 success on home turf for their fourth win of the campaign to move further clear of the relegation zone going into the cup break.
Upminster’s problems continued with a third successive defeat in London Three North East.
Beaten 29-13 on their own turf by Harlow a week earlier, Upminster were edged out 22-18 by hosts South Woodham Ferrers.
They picked up a bonus point, at least, but have now slipped down to seventh place.
Table-topping Campion made it six wins out of six in Essex One with a fiery 19-12 triumph at Bancroft.
And neighbours Old Cooperians remain hot on their heels after their fifth win in six outings against rivals Billericay at St Mary’s Lane.
Andy Dennis landed a penalty inbetween two successful Billericay kicks at goal, before Theo Stafford and Scott Sarson combined for Keith Wardley to touch down.
Jon Foong went over on the stroke of half-time to make it 13-6 and Sarson dived over early in the second half.
Dennis then added another penalty before Sarson sent Kolade Awobowale over for a late converted try to complete a 28-6 win.
