Hartpury Defeat Extends Exeter's Lead At The Top

Whilst Hartpury's five game winning streak was destroyed by Bath, Exeter continue to excel away at Leeds Beckett. 

MATCH 1: Beckett fail to pull off a second half comeback against Exeter

In the BUCS Super Rugby Rainbow Laces special, Exeter flew out the blocks to score all three of their tries in the first half. With a big push required by Beckett in the second half, the home side only managed to put down one try, highlighting the strength of Exeter's defence.

Beckett also deserve commending for their defensive play in the second half, restricting Exeter from scoring in the second half. Full time score 10 - 21. 

MATCH 2: Bath break Hartpury's run 

Bath delivered an impressive away performance to break Hartpury's five-game winning streak. 

With both teams exchanging penalties, Bath entered the second half with a narrow lead against the home side.

Bath's lead was quickly matched by Hartpury after the break, but Bath's Barry provided an immediate response to provide the visitors with a seven-point lead. 

Tensions ran high in the dying moments as Hartpury touched a late try. Sadly for the home side the failed conversion confirmed the win for Bath. Full Time 11 - 13. 

MATCH 3: Cardiff Met return to winning ways 

After their defeat to Loughborough last week, Cardiff Met were keen to return to their winning ways this week against Nottingham Trent. 

The home side secured the win thanks to tries from Harvey Scott & Will Morris (2) in addition to two penalty kicks from Harry Johnston. Meanwhile Trent continued to press, attaining a consolation try for their efforts. Full Time 28 - 12. 

MATCH 4: Cardiff fail to attain a winning streak 

Off the back of their win against Northumbria, Cardiff fell short against an impressive Durham performance.

In the first half Cardiff maintained their grasp on Durham, scoring a try in response to Durham's two from Myles Rawstron-Rudd & Tom Lewis. However, the second half saw Durham excel with Alex Keay's side securing a convincing 23-7 win. 

MATCH 5: Northumbria knock Loughborough down the table

After a hotly battled first half, Northumbria ensured that the victory was theirs thanks to two tries from Lewis Berg. 

Northumbria's captain Oli Robinson opened the scoring for the evening, tussling over the line. Loughborough responded soon after thanks to Archie Macpherson. 

Once against Northumbria crossed over which Loughborough quickly reciprocated to bring the scores level once more. As half-time approached, Northumbria were gifted a two-point lead thanks to Ed Bloodworth. 

The second half proved to be less contested as the home side excelled. After a disallowed try for offside, Northumbria took home the victory with a further two tries. Full time 35 - 19.
