Bancroft 35, Wymondham 18

Wymondham's hopes of a first away victory were left in tatters after they put in an unsatisfactory performance against bottom club Bancroft.

Now it is the Red and Blacks who sit at the foot of the table and they need to start playing to their full potential if they wish to preserve their place in London Three.

Even the returning Barry O'Sullivan, Justin Loveridge and Chris Brown and inspiring performances from Colts skipper David Blake and veteran Mike Rout could not rouse the whole team from producing a lacklustre performance.

After just two minutes Bancroft's hat-trick hero, wing Paul Robinson, crossed the line for his first score. Robinson extended the lead when his penalty, after striking the upright, dropped fortuitously over.

Wymondham briefly burst into life when Chris Brown crossed the line, providing James Wyatt with an easy conversion, but two further tries from Robinson put them back to square one.

The visitors hit back after the break, with Wyatt getting his second penalty and then Robert Trounce rounding off some excellent forwards' driving play to score an converted try and put his side back in it.

Wymondham's hopes though were short-lived, as Francois Nell and Gavin Boston both touched down and Robinson moved his tally to 25 points in the game.
