MATTHEW Birch scored all of Bromsgrove's points in a second consecutive win in Powergen Midlands One, a 16-5 victory away to Derby. Birch scored a try, which he converted, before kicking three penalties.

Walsall, after two wins, lost 28-15 at Dunstablians. As in most matches, the two sides were plagued by horrendous conditions, a poor first half by the visitors resulting in Dunstablians leading 22-3 at half time before, despite facing the wind, Walsall put on a much better show.

Tries by Mark Gilbert and Jimmy Scott reduced the deficit and visiting fly-half Tom Archer added a penalty and a conversion.

Kettering secured a meritable, 30-15, win at Mansfield.

Mansfield took an early lead with a try but Mark Cheetham levelled with one of his own.

South African fly-half Dillon van Bylezelt kicked Kettering into the lead with a penalty on 33 minutes.

Mikey Watson put the visitors further ahead with a try after the break before a further van Bylezelt penalty was backed up by tries from replacement Harry Brown and Luca Rogers to confirm the victory.

Luctonians managed to scrape through for only a second victory of the campaign, winning 13-12 at Longton.

Ben Moss opened the scoring for the visitors after ten minutes before a penalty was scored by Samoan Mark Panniers.

Longton got themselves back into the game and edged in front to lead 12-10 at half time.

Some good play by John Goodwin resulted in the visitors securing a penalty. Panniers duly scored the points from the kick for Luctonians to win.
