CHINNOR ran in four tries to beat bottom side Broadstreet 25-17 and remain in pole position to make the play-offs.

George Oliver, Greg Goodfellow, Jonny Bentley and Mike McDonald crossed for the National League 2 South high-fliers.

The bonus-point victory sees the Thame-based side remain second – the league’s only play-off spot – and 15 points ahead of third-placed Taunton Titans with eight games remaining.

In difficult conditions, Chinnor took an early lead when Oliver was pushed over and Bentley added the extras.

But Broadstreet hit back on 12 minutes with an unconverted score.

Chinnor’s response was strong as scrum half Goodfellow left the visiting defence in his wake with a fine dummy to dive over and make it 12-5.

Broadstreet, playing with the wind behind them, looked to cut the deficit, but missed a penalty from just inside their own half.

And the home side extended their advantage to 12 points before the break when Bentley crossed.

Chinnor, though, made a slow start to the second half and a converted try from Broadstreet made it 17-12.

The hosts responded to secure the four-try bonus point when McDonald went over.

But Broadstreet refused to give in, going over for another unconverted try, before they had a man sent off.

Bentley kicked the resulting penalty to secure a 25-17 victory.

Henley Hawks fell to back-to-back defeats for the first time since September when losing 19-0 at home to struggling Wimbledon.

The hosts produced a lacklustre performance at Dry Leas against a side they beat 55-26 earlier this season.

After a cagey opening quarter-of-an-hour, Wimbledon deservedly took the lead when Matt Gilbert went over.

A second try soon followed as Daniel Laventure crossed with Henley prop Brad Cook in the sin-bin.

The second half started in a similar vein, but Hawks were forced to finish the game with 14 men and resort to uncontested scrums after a head injury to Cook.

A Ben Brooks try saw Wimbledon go further ahead and condemn Henley to their tenth defeat of the season.
