COM­FORT­ABLE WIN: Amer­sham and Chilterns RFC’s Joe But­ler against Lu­ton RFC at the Ash Grove ground

Andy Fluker con­verted four and But­ler, who rounded off the scor­ing with a drop goal, one.

Choules said: “We played pretty well in parts, although we made it harder than it needed to be in the mid­dle pe­riod. The qual­ity of our han­dling and the pace at which we played blew them away.

“There were also no in­juries, which we were crip­pled by last sea­son. We’ve made hav­ing a fit­ter and strong squad a mas­sive pri­or­ity and the time and money we’ve in­vested in a per­for­mance team is al­ready pay­ing div­i­dends.”

Down in South­ern Coun­ties North, Bea­cons­field went down to a low-scor­ing 12-3 derby de­feat at Ayles­bury, while Drifters lost 33-7 at Read­ing Abbey, and in Berks, Bucks & Oxon One, Che­sham were beaten 59-17 at Tadley. All three are at home this Satur­day – Bea­cons­field to Walling­ford, Drifters to Stow-on-the-Wold and Che­sham to Abing­don.
