Chiswick 43 – Old Merchant Taylors 17

A cold capricious wind failed to prevent a feast of running rugby, with the home pack, strengthened by the return of Sam Hood, proving the dominant force eventually. Despite the wind on their backs, with Gabs Lowe standing in at fly half, Chiswick were always going to run everything.

Last time Chiswick played Harpenden with snow on the pitch, the match was abandoned at half-time, with the score 0-0. This time the half-time score was again 0-0, but the sun was out, the snow had melted, and an epic encounter between the second and the third in the League ended with honours even.

Chiswick 36 – St Albans 24

For most of this match the talented Chiswick back division was in charge, absorbing another change, this time caused by fatherhood, Jon Gibson now being a Dad, and always dangerous when given half a chance to attack.
