THE WINDSOR Dames have won the National Junior Plate for the second season running after a 17-0 victory against Harrogate at Wootton Bassett Rugby Club on Saturday.

Maidenhead are one win away from securing the South West One East title this season following a 28-5 victory over Reading on Saturday.

Maidenhead secured a bonus point win at Braywick Park and, with second-placed Old Patesians losing at Old Centralians, are now almost certain to win the championship.

Charlie Davies gave Reading the lead though the home side took a 21-5 advantage into the half-time interval after tries from Scott Prince, Will Thompson and Tom Finnie. The latter booted all three of his conversion attempts.

Maidenhead secured the bonus point in the second half with a converted Lewis Jones try.

Finnie has now scored 304 points this season which means he has broken the record for most points scored, beating the previous record set by Max Arnold in 1976/77.

Maidenhead will lift the title with a win at relegation-threatened Reading Abbey this Saturday (3pm).

Windsor remain second from bottom in the table after a 37-34 defeat at Witney. Now four points from safety, Windsor welcome Banbury to Home Park this Saturday (3pm).

In the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier, runners-up Drifters made it six wins on the spin with a 38-8 victory away at Didcot.

Rob Wills bagged a hat-trick of tries with Sam Hawridge, Carl Corcoran and Pete Whitby also touching down.
