I went to watch Richmond beat Shelford 41-14 on Saturday. For sixty minutes the team looked as though it had had collective brain surgery as it spluttered to score against a lively Shelford side. In the end after the half backs were subbed, the threequarters finally started to move the ball more quickly and a tired Shelford paid the price.
Elsewhere Worthing hitherto undefeated lost 49-14 to Hartpury (Gloucester's Academy XV) which makes this weekend's game for Richmond away to Worthing a six pointer......
My other teams fared well - Charlton won away to Hartlepool 4-0 and stay top 3 points clear of Huddersfield and now with a better goal difference; Bath beat London Irish away 13-12 but Bedford lost at home 28-45 against Leeds Carnegie.
