Ruis­lip out­classed by early league lead­ers

RUGBY UNION

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

THE league ta­ble does not lie and Ruis­lip’s clash with lead­ers Eton Manor went true to form on Satur­day as the early pace­set­ters showed their class.

Eton have a 100 per cent record in London One North, hav­ing won all six of their fix­tures so far this sea­son to leave them top of the pile. Ruis­lip are sec­ond from bot­tom with just one vic­tory to their name so far and this lat­est de­feat, a 45-17 tri­umph for Manor, came as no sur­prise.

Satur­day sees Ruis­lip host Brent­wood, which should pose a more re­al­is­tic chance of points than the chal­lenge of the di­vi­sion’s best side this term.

In Herts/Mid­dle­sex Two, Ick­en­ham’s dis­mal start to the cam­paign as a 43-6 loss at Chess Val­ley made it three straight de­feats for the base­ment dwellers.

Their op­po­nents this week­end, Hilling­don Ab­bots, beat Quintin 46-8 to re­main top in the stand­ings with three wins from three.

Uxbridge went down 31-5 to West London and will be look­ing to bounce back against Har­lequins Am­a­teurs this Satur­day.

And in London Two North West, Old Mer­chant Tay­lors’ recorded a 31-25 win over Old Hab­er­dash­ers and they face a Staines side this week­end, who sit one place and one point above them in sec­ond in the ta­ble.
