EPPING Upper Clapton’s hopes of recording a first League victory were scuppered at Romford GP as they failed to convert territory and possession into points. Each game has thrown up positives but Clapton’s inability to develop a cohesive game plan and convert possession has been far too apparent.
FIRST thoughts suggested that this was to be a closely fought contest. After 25 minutes EUCRFC held as slim lead, having slotted over 3 penalty goals from the boot of Mitch Din. Wanstead had responded with a try by inside centre Pruce

HARLOW travelled to third placed East London on Saturday knowing that to keep their challenge for the league title alive nothing short of a win would do and preferably to secure the bonus point for a five point win.
PLAYING up the hill in the first half, Harlow started strongly. Excellent play from both forwards and backs meant the men in red quickly made inroads into the home team’s defence before second-row stalwart Mark Twiner touched down in the corner. Unfortunately Ross Stalley, standing in for the injured Danny Smith at fly-half, was unsuccessful with the conversation attempt.
HARLOW met bottom of the table Ilford on Saturday and but for one defensive slip early on played a faultless game. They ran in sixteen tries twelve of them converted to record their biggest win in many years.

THE Rams traveled to Hitchin on Saturday for a friendly fixture following the cancellation of the scheduled league encounter with Chingford.
PLAYING into a strong wind in the first half Harlow were immediately pinned back in their own 22. However, patient defence and good, accurate clearance kicks from half backs Danny Smith and Charlie Woodington meant the red men were able to weather the early storm unscathed.
THIS game was meant to be a league game but unfortunately Rochford only had 14 players available and therefore conceded the win to us. So we decided to make it a friendly.
THE Rams were back in action on Saturday in a Merit Table fixture against Basildon. Harlow fielded a strong squad that was bolstered by the return from long term injury of James Clark, Owen Blissett and, Scott and Dale Stalley. It wasn’t long after the first whistle that The Rams started piling on the points.
HARLOW confirmed their place at the top of division III NE with a convincing win over Stowmarket, the only side to beat them in the first round of league matches.
SATURDAY was another high point for the men’s teams at Harlow Rugby Club all three sides playing and all three winning. This is part of an ongoing series of results which puts all of the sides at the top of their at the top of their respective leagues by significant margins.
