UNBEATEN Malvern Rugby Club secured a seventh straight Midlands Two West (South) win with a 37-5 triumph at mid-table Leamington.

The bonus-point success left the town side three points behind leaders Nuneaton Old Edwardians, who also boast a 100 per cent record, with a game in hand.

Wet weather made it difficult for the teams once again on Saturday with plenty of spillages from both sides when in possession.

They had to adapt to slippy conditions early on with Malvern full-back Ethan Sommerwill bagging his first try for the club to open the scoring.

A dominant driving maul put the visitors in a strong position and the ball was moved out for Sommerwill to finish off.

Lewis Hardiman scored the second try after the ball was thrown across after a close-range line-out.

Malvern led 17-0 at the interval when Hardiman used his pace and agility to bag his second.

However, the Spring Lane side lost their discipline in the second period with several shows of dissent allowing Leamington field position.

The hosts' forwards battled through the phases and the ball was popped up for their hooker to smash over for what turned out to be a consolation try.

But Malvern regained the initiative with a Dan Batty penalty to go 15 points ahead in the later stages.

The bonus point was collected when Laurie Essenhigh charged down a clearance and dived on the ball to score.

Then a tap penalty was quickly taken to Sommerwill who sped over for his second try.

Batty's penalty completed the scoring for Malvern who prospered despite a midfield reshuffle with Luke Milton at fly-half and Rob Cook at outside centre.

Jack Longley earned his 75th cap for the club and Arran Carr made his first-team debut after impressing for the second XV.

Upton's home game with Pershore in Midlands Four West (South) was postponed and Bromyard were handed a home walkover against Kings Norton.
