Towcestrians continued their fine run of form with a 36-12 victory over Cheltenham, giving them their seventh victory in eight games.

The visitors were immediately knocked back through a thundering try from Matt Yuill, but to their credit, Cheltenham responded with a try of their own from a driving forwards effort.

As the game unfolded, Tows looked threatening every time they had the ball in hand, as a Chrissie George break resulted in Gus Hopewell dotting down before James Falvey ran in a third and a Tows scrum drove over for the bonus-point try with Craig Holton touching down.

The half ended with Yuill releasing George to score under his posts and give Tows total domination, before Yuill skipped across for his second after the interval to complete a comfortable victory.

Towcestrians, who remain third in South West One East, take on mid-table Grove this weekend.

Elsewhere, Tows IIs beat Kettering IIs 48-7, the IIIs defeated Brackley 29-19 and the Colts won 24-20 against Casual Colts.
