Welsh win at Barnet to stay top

Five converted tries continue run of bonus point wins.

A wet and windy afternoon in North London didn't stop London Welsh notching up their tenth consecutive bonus point win. Cheered on by 100 travelling supporters, five converted tries ensured that Welsh maintained their lead at the top of the Herts/Middx 1 table.

Ben Francis opened the scoring on ten minutes with the first of his two tries, Lloyd Davies added the conversion. Barnet fought back five minutes later with an unconverted try but it would be a further 20 minutes until Welsh added more points. Cai Griffiths muscled over for the second try and his fellow prop, Sam Mahoney, added the third on the stroke of half time. Lloyd Davies converted both.

Half time: Barnet 5 London Welsh 21

Ben Francis was on the score sheet again in the opening minute of the second half running in his tenth try of the league campaign. The bonus point try was converted by Team Captain Lloyd Davies. The final try of the match went to Tyron Pelasio, also his tenth of the season, and Lloyd Davies added the extras.

Full time: Barnet 5 London Welsh 35


London Welsh have an eleven point lead over second placed Royston with Bank of England three points further back, albeit with a game in hand. Next Saturday (3rd Feb) we welcome Saracens to Old Deer Park. Kick off is at the earlier time of 1pm.
