It was one of those 'if Carlsberg did Saturday's' kind of afternoons at Welwyn Rugby Club as not only did three teams play at home, but all three won.

Alongside the men's first team, Welwyn seconds and their veterans both saw off challengers from Verulamians.

On the main pitch meanwhile, the ones were securing a hard-fought four points after beating Finchley 11-8 in Counties One Herts Middlesex.

It was a game where they finally managed to convert a good start to a winning result, and they did it against a north London side who started the day in fourth place.

The home scrum was dominant throughout the game and after 20 minutes, one devastating effort made space for Josh Milton to drive over for a score. 

Into the wind Chris Kemp hit the post with his conversion attempt.

Finchley were not to be outdone though and five minutes later they created space for their backs to get across the line, although yet again the kick failed to hit the target leaving the two side locked together at 5-5.

A penalty given away early in the second half by Welwyn for not rolling away at a tackle allowed Finchley to kick three points and move into the lead for the one and only time.

Welwyn though did not take their foot off the pedal and when Finchley gave away a penalty for taking the scrum half out at a maul, Kemp converted to pull the scores level again.

As the light closed in Welwyn continued to push and Finchley gave away another penalty, this time for a high tackle. 

Kemp was again successful, this time putting Welwyn in front for the most important part of the game.

The last 10 minutes saw some great play from both sides but neither side were able to breach the other's defences, giving Welwyn the win.

The result keeps Welwyn in eighth but they are now four points behind Ruislip.

Hackney are the team behind the Hobbs Way club, with the gap at one point after they won 33-6 at home to Datchworth, a result leaves the Men in Green in 10th.

Unlike Welwyn, they do have a game on Saturday when they go to Enfield Ignatians, the same one place behind them.
