SECOND-PLACED Chinnor picked up another bonus-point victory in beating Old Redcliffians 24-19.

The result leaves the Thame-based side 15 points clear of Taunton Titans and Redingensians as they maintain their grip on National League 2 South’s sole play-off spot.

Dan Fry was sin-binned early on for Old Reds and Chinnor made early pressure count when Alex Waddingham went over.

It was soon 10-0 after Kieran Goss crossed.

Bertie Hopkin then converted his own try to extend their lead to 17 points.

The hosts hit back just before the break, with Craig McGrath crossing for an unconverted try.

Playing up the slope in the second half, Chinnor were forced to defend for long periods, before Thomas Hargan went over for Old Reds.

However, Henry Lamont’s try saw the visitors secure the four-try bonus point.

Chinnor were on the backfoot and conceded when Ethan Doyle dived over for a try, but they were able to see out the victory.

Henley Hawks were involved in a 13-try thriller at Redruth but lost 49-38 in Cornwall.

The bonus-point defeat leaves the south Oxfordshire club sitting seventh in the table.
