BRACKNELL RFC made it three wins from three in South West East after they beat previously unbeaten Coney Hill 61-24.

Bracknell's Ben Nowak kicks for the posts against Coney Hill.

The convincing victory further underlines Bracknell's promotion credentials and sees them remain second in the table, a point behind Swindon, the only other side in the league with a perfect record.

The Lily Hill men got off to a strong start on Saturday when hooker Stuart Silvester was driven over from a lineout within the first five minutes.

Ben Nowak and Coney Hill's Paddy Knight traded penalties before Bracknell extended their advantage with a string of scores.

Stuart Mackay, Dan Antonelli and Tom Saunders all got their names on the scoresheet and ,with Nowak adding a penalty and conversions, Bracknell went in 32-3 up at the break.

Dan Ap Dafydd got in on the act in the second period with a brace of tries before he had to go off for attention to an injury.

Nowak then pushed Bracknell further ahead when he added to his tally with a try that he also converted.

But Coney Hill hit back with scores from Sid King and Adam Pettigrew that Paddy Knight topped up to make it 49-17.

At that time the visitors were just about still in the contest but Matt Brambley's converted try ended any lingering hopes of a comeback.

King did manage to reduce the deficit when he touched down his second, with Knight again on hand to add the extras.

However, it was Bracknell who had the final say as winger Ian Burch crossed for the last touchdown of the match.

Bracknell will be hoping to pile on the points again on Saturday when they go to a High Wycombe side yet to win (3pm ko).
