Belsize Park racked up more than 60 points for the second game in a row, scoring 10 tries to thump Stevenage Town in Regent’s Park and climb to third place in London North-West Division Three.
Winger Ben Parker, fly-half Jamie Niven and outside centre Jack Marples all touched down twice, and there were further scores for Will Ville, Jeremy Burton, captain George Hazlett and Mark Liebling in the 64-3 home win.
Director of rugby Zach Webb said: “Stevenage won their last game and only just lost to Hackney, who are in second place, so they’re not a bad side at all.
“Our structure worked really well. In the first half we scored a lot of tries from broken play – counter-attacks, running well. In the second half we scored a lot more from our structure and building up to the tries.
“We’re three games in now. I think the first game against London Nigerians [a 23-18 home defeat] was a bit of a surprise to us. I think we were a little bit late to the season, we didn’t have as many warm-up games as we should have had and now our structure is really starting to come into play.
