HIGH-FLYING Tottonians are just one point away from their best-ever league finish.

Another hard-earned victory – a 26-19 win at Chobham last weekend - kept them on course for fourth place in London 1 South with just two games to go.

CS Rugby 1863, fifth in the table, have not quite given up the chase but are ten points behind with an outside chance of catching Totts on points difference.

Chobham went 7-0 up against Totts in the opening minutes on Saturday but a solo try from Richard Buck soon got his side back on equal terms.

Robbie Searle made the conversion and added a penalty but two successful kicks from the home side put them 13-10 up at the break.

The teams exchanged penalties before Tottonians went into the lead for the first time – Pierre Alex Clark crossed the line in the corner and captain Robbie Searle added the extra two points.

He made another two penalties count either side of one from Chobham who ended the game within seven points of Totts for a well-earned point.

Robbie Searle said: “The way the guys applied themselves today was fantastic.

“We put right a few defensive issues from last week and I felt we dealt with their threats really well.

“We back ourselves to score tries with our attacking style so if we can shut the other team out we won’t be going far wrong.

“Only conceding one try away from home in this league is good going and shows the desire and effort the lads are putting in. We probably left a couple of tries out there but given how tight the last few games between ourselves and Chobham have been we will take that result.”

Tottonians entertain unbeaten leaders Sidcup at Water Lane on Saturday before finishing off their league campaign with a trip to Brighton on April 22.

Promotion-seeking Havant will be looking over their shoulder at chasing Tunbridge Wells who are now only three points behind the second-placed Hampshire side.

Havant were beaten 33-31 at Cobham on Saturday and face top side Sidcup on the final day of the season.

Tunbridge’s latest victory was a 52-5 success at Havant’s neighbours, Gosport & Fareham.

Winchester followed up the previous week’s defeat at the hands of runaway leaders London Cornish with a trip to second-placed Camberley in London 2 South-West.

Winch put in a better performance, scoring tries from wing Alex Yates and captain Jake Hiscock which were both converted by Conner Breen, but lost out 53-14 to the ambitious Surrey side.

Player coach Greg Sullivan said: “They’re a team flying high, expecting to go up, who have won two of their last games by over 70 and 90 points against quality opposition.

“At times, when we upped our defence, we created a level playing field and they they ran out of ideas quite quickly. We are moving in the right direction.”
