Horsham continue to lead the way at the top of London 3 South East after a fine start to the season.

The free-scoring Green and Whites kept up their 100 per cent record with their third consecutive win of the season on Saturday.

They maintained their position at the summit with a comfortable 67-9 victory over newly promoted Park House. The game doubled up as a second round London & South East Senior Vase match.

Horsham backs coach Richard Bell said: “We set ourselves a target of 15 points after three games. I was also pleased that we conceded fewer penalties at the breakdown than in previous weeks.

“We asked for a disciplined and controlled performance. We wanted to play to our structure and patterns whilst we settled our nerves.

“Our support play was good and our defence outstanding to shut them out. We scored some great team tries and converted 80 per cent of our opportunities.

“There was no lull and we kept up our intensity for the full 80 minutes.”
