Hendon’s unbeaten start to the league campaign came to an end as they were defeated 17-8 at West London and dropped to sixth place in Herts/Middlesex Division Two.

The Dons survived an early penalty kick, which missed the target, but they conceded the opening try.

Mike Evans-Jones responded with a penalty but the visitos lost captain Ger O’Donoghue to a head injury and they were then reduced to 13 men as a sin-binning was followed by a red card for Ben Linale, who was adjudged to have made a high tackle.

West London extended their lead with a penalty and a try and, although JP Cremin touched down and the hosts were also handed a red card in the last 10 minutes, Hendon were unable to battle back.
