MALVERN continue to dominate in Midland Two West (South) with another convincing performance at Spartans, writes Ash Bajwa.

Once again the leaders started quickly on their way to a 73-7 romp as Rob Cook’s looping pass found Jon Wills on the wing to grab a try.

Spartans battled hard but conceded a penalty for Dan Batty to slot the ball through the posts.

The next try came from the Cook-Wills combination again as a cross-field quick found the reliable hands of the latter who scored his second.

Malvern kicked on when a dominant driving maul sent Josh Herbert over the whitewash.

A yellow card was shown to visitors' skipper Liam Roleston for a no-arms tackle.

But this did not faze Malvern as they bagged the bonus-point try through Tom Hale who broke several tackles to score under the posts.

Hale was heavily involved again as he battled through to set up Wills for his hat-trick, making it 38-0 at half-time.

Malvern scored a well-constructed try after the break as several offloads led to Hale grabbing his second.

Hale caused problems for Spartans as he set up a two-on-one for Laurie Essenhigh to go over.

Lewis Hardiman got on the end of a grubber kick to get a try although from the restart Spartans pulled one back after poor defending.

Malvern scored twice before the end with Batty and Sam Parsons on the scoresheet.

They host third-placed Barkers Butts at Spring Lane on Saturday with both sides unbeaten in the league (3pm).

Malvern will entertain Northampton Old Scouts on Saturday, November 30, in the RFU Midlands Intermediate Cup quarter-finals (2.15pm).

Meanwhile, Malvern's rebuilt colts set-up went out of the National Under 18s Cup first round 20-8 at home to Bristol side Frampton Cotterell.

Frampton's big pack dominated the early exchanges with two push-over tries from mauls.

Malvern responded with a try from skipper Graham Pass and a penalty.

Superior forward power finally told with two more Frampton tries in the third quarter.

In Midlands Four West (South), early leaders Upton beat visitors Old Wheatleyans 47-5 and Bromyard saw off Claverdon 26-5 at home.
