Hampstead jumped out of the relegation places in London Three north west with a precious win.

Coach Glenn Taylor hopes the 28-18 victory - largely a product of impressive driven tries - will give his side a mental boost going into a tough run of fixtures.

"It was a huge game for us because we've got top-of-the-table Ruislip next, then a few more big teams, and it makes a big psychological difference if you can take maximum points going into a that run," said Taylor.

"We started slowly and the line-outs were good, but our contact in the rucking was poor. At half-time we realised if we didn't do something about it, they were going to sneak off with the points.

"Fortunately, the boys got stuck in in the second-half and we kept the scoreboard ticking over."

Danny Burgess dotted down in the first half and Cowan-Dickie also found his way over the line, though Hampstead trailed 15-13 at the turn.

Richard Colvin and Chris Darke added to the tally as Hampstead made the game safe in the final ten minutes.

Hampstead: Fehnert, Liams, Goldberg, Poole, Sleight, Colvin, McTurk, Everett, Pugh, Darke, Agyerton, Keith, Burgess, Cowan-Dickie, Lacey.
