Coach Adam Drew said: “I’d like to applaud our opponents Worcester for a very impressive and committed performance.

“They battled hard and throughout and we were forced us to work extremely hard to score our six tries.

“We took our time to settle in the match, but when we finally showed good composure, we scored some great tries.

“Our record remains intact, and that gives me an immense sense of pride for the boys and club.

“We will now re-group ahead of two end-of-season tournaments, the Newbury tensfestival followed by the National Sevens Junior Championships.”
