Teenager Chris Kiyingi scored a debut hat-trick and Geoff McAvoy also touched down three times as a Hendon XV scored 11 tries in an emphatic 67-19 friendly win over Woodford.

The Dons are in the middle of a three-week break from their Herts/Middlesex Division Two schedule due to cancelled fixtures, but the league leaders enjoyed another high-scoring victory on Saturday.

Winger McAvoy opened the scoring and Paul Geraghty and Brian O’Regan followed suit before flanker Kiyingi dotted down to put Hendon 20-7 ahead at the break.

McAvoy and Kiyingi scored another two tries each while Arwel Roberts, John Paul Cremin and Donal O’Sullivan also went over, and captain Toby Ikwueke kicked six conversions.
