WINGER Henry Lamont and scrum half Mike McDonald both scored two tries as Chinnor triumphed 41-7 at home to Canterbury to stay top of National League 2 South.

Bertie Hopkin’s try put Chinnor ahead in the sixth minute.

However, the most telling blow came at the end of the first quarter when, with the visitors reduced to 14 men, the hosts grabbed another score.

McDonald crossed and Hopkin added the extras to stretch their lead to 12 points.

Lamont and Tom Price then went over, the last converted by Hopkin.

And Chinnor made it 29-0 at the break when McDonald crossed following a rolling maul.

Canterbury emerged for the second half with a new determination and produced with a catch-and-drive try from Sam Kenny, converted by Kyan Braithwaite.

With their pack on the front foot for substantial periods, the Kent side controlled possession without threatening.

By contrast, Chinnor’s confident handling saw Lamont go over again and Jonny Bentley add the seventh try, converted by Hopkin.

However, the pressure told in the 22nd and 38th minutes when the strong-running Simon Perry raced over for a brace of tries.

Scrum half George Jackson converted both to give Henley a 19-0 half-time lead.

Hawks were disrupted by injury in the second half.

Centre Liam O’Neill departed with a leg injury, while new prop Kieran Ball was unable to continue after the break, having fractured a thumb.

The visitors’ leading try-scorers George Owen and Reon Joseph took

advantage of the disruption in the visitors’ defence to score tries, one of which Alex Seers converted.

Henley’s forwards redoubled their efforts and the determined Tom Haynes drove through for a try to make it 24-12.

Wild Geese scored a third try, but Hawks hung on, despite losing a third player, Jim Hadfield, due to
