Winslow RUFC battled with both the elements and a strong Crowthorne team to secure a much-needed 17-12 home victory in the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Championship.

Crowthorne stuck first through a converted try but Winslow responded when their forwards pushed on and Paul Green scored a try that was converted by Claude.

The teams remained evenly-matched in the remainder of the first half, but Winslow came out the stronger after the break and secured victory thanks to Claude, whose penalty, try and conversation proved out of reach for the visitors, despite a late Crowthorne consolation.

Winslow are currently 10th in the table.
