Big victory for United
Weston United ran out comfortable 66-5 winners over Imperial.
Imperial 5 pts
Weston United 66 pts
UNITED kicked off into a low sun and set about their business for the afternoon.
James Reid was first to go over and Luke Blizzard added the extras. A second try followed for Blizzard, before Imperial enjoyed their best part of the half. Skipper Sprague relieved the pressure when he charged the length of the pitch to score.

Main then touched down the first of two tries, Down crossed for a score before Main, again, had the final say of the half, Blizzard converting five of the six tries.
I am pleased to report that although the score rate dropped off during the second half there was no distraction to the United’s game.

Further tries followed in the second half for Withers, a second for Sprague and impressively two for Caton who came off the bench. Withers gave a solid performance, returning from injury only to be marred by a last minute yellow card. Imperial rallied in the closing minutes and the pressure applied resulted in a deserved unconverted try.
Other players of note were Main, who has a terrific influence. Blizzard showed improvement and Oupoh looked good and finished at full-back for the battered Fletcher.
