At Parkfield Road Newbold beat Old Halesonians 20-15 in their Midlands Premier game, Bold’s second win of the season after their promotion to national league rugby.

Over at Webb Ellis Road things were a bit easier for Rugby Lions, recording a 43-17 win over Stoke on Trent. Lions stay second in Midlands West 1, level on points with leaders Bromsgrove and third-placed Burton.

Old Laurentians won 27-20 at Oakham, to be sixth on 11 points in a very close Midlands 2 East (South). After three games leaders Market Harborough are only four points ahead on 15.
