Rosslyn Park make a statement

Rosslyn Park made an early impression in National One with a dominant 58-0 win over Old Albanians, taking their place at the top of the table after the first round of fixtures. 

It was a worrying start for Old Albanians in their first home game of the season while Park will now take plenty of confidence into their local derby against Blackheath at home this Saturday. 

Blackheath had an eqaully astonishing start to the season with a 40 metre penalty from fly-half Joe Tarrant in the final moment of the game giving them a 32-31 victory over Plymouth Albion. 

With Hartpury College now plying their trade in the Greene King IPA Championship, Coventry showed their credentials with a thumping 63-20 win over Hull Ionians. 

Hull started well, going up 14-3 in the opening ten minutes and were only 20-25 down at the half but the second forty proved a different story. 

A Coventry side, containing seven debutants, scored 38 unanswered points to record their largest ever away win on the opening day of the season. 

Saturday also saw fellow newcomers Bishop's Stortford play Caldy with the former claiming a 49-26 bonus-point victory while newly-promoted Old Etlhamians went down 39-14 to Esher. 

Ampthill rescued a draw with Birmingham Moseley with the match finishing 21-21 while Darlington Mowden Park and Cambridge got off to a winning start with wins over Loughborough and Fylde respectively.
