Hornets produced by far their most convincing performance of the season by outplaying their visitors from Berkshire by five tries to three.

Outstanding in a dominant pack of forwards was man of the match No 8 Matt Denton, who scored a brilliant hat-trick. Other try scorers were skipper Rob Dempsey and player-coach Steve Pape.

Charlie Carter also contributed 17 points by kicking four of the tries and also kicking three penalty goals.

This was an important victory for the club in what has been a difficult season so far, having lost a number of last season’s first team to teams in higher leagues.

This results will give much-needed confidence for the derby encounter with Weston on Saturday.
