Saffron Walden v Brentwood


Promotion-chasing Brentwood inflicted Saffron Walden’s second successive London One North defeat on Saturday in embarrassing fashion, winning 50-0 at Henham.

The second-placed visitors, 12 points off rampant Tring, entered the match having won their previous six games and made short work of Danny Hunter’s men.

Walden, who are still embarking on their first season back in London One North after being promoted as champions last campaign, are back in action on March 4 when they travel to Eton Manor.

The London side are two places and 15 points better off than their visitors with six games to go.

The reverse fixture ended in a dramatic 29-29 draw in November.

Seventh-placed Walden had led 29-17 but Manor battled back to claim a share of the points.

The Henham side have shown patchy form on the road this campaign, winning just three of their nine encounters.
