CHINNOR warmed up for their National 2 play-off by ending the regular season with a 52-14 home victory over Clifton.

The Thame-based side ran in eight tries at Kingsey Road in the South division encounter.

Chinnor will now host North runners-up Sedgley Park for a place in the third tier on Saturday.

Against Clifton, they opened the scoring after nine minutes when Jack Gilding went over following a maul, Bertie Hopkin adding the extras.

Tom Price and Ricky Cano also powered across, Hopkin converting the first.

Clifton hit back on the stroke of half-time, Dan Wells crossing and Chris Levesley adding the extras.

The hosts went on to dominate after the break, with Luke Hibberd, Josh Barton, Mike MacDonald and Ben Manning going over, Hopkin converting all four.

Clifton never gave up and Elliot Booley touched down, Levesley adding the extras.

But Chinnor had the last word when Jonny Bentley crossed.

Henley Hawks suffered a 51-0 defeat at Redingensians, ending the campaign with six straight losses.

The visitors’ game plan to play their way out of trouble frequently broke down and they were punished.

Ben Henderson, Connor Corrigan, Ellis Jones and Miles Lloyd crossed, Adrian Jarvis converting three times and kicking a penalty, to make it 29-0.

The hosts’ dominance continued, Joe Duffelen and Steve Bryant among the try-scorers as Rams led 51-0.

But the match was stopped with six minutes to go after Hawks’ Toby Howe was knocked unconscious.

He recovered to leave the field unaided.
