Hillingdon Abbots moved one step closer to a return to the first division with a 63-5 victory against Thamesians.
The in-form side are now eight points clear in phase two of the competition and now look favourites to return to the top flight at their first attempt.
With their home ground waterlogged, Saturday’s fixture took place at a neutral setting and with just three minutes on the clock forward Adam Webster scored the first of nine tries for the Abbots.
Hillingdon quickly settled into the game and extended their lead 12 minutes later when Webster went over the whitewash for his second.
A successful conversion and penalty kick one minute later from fly-half Wake saw Abbots quickly establish a 15-point lead.
Man of the match Ben Foster was lethal in midfield and ran home his first of two tries before Wake ran home from 40 metres out to secure the all-important bonus point try.
Scrum half Liam McPherson added another to take the score to 36-5 at the break.
Foster grabbed the first try of the second half and his second of the game, before three tries in succession from wings Hayden Elliot and Dyneil Fessal and a storming 70 metre run from full-back Brad Buckingham completed the scoring.
Abbots are at home to second-placed Hendon on Saturday.
Meanwhile, London 1’s North Ruislip emerged victorious on the road to Luton with the final score 31-14 to the visitors. Next week they will host Letchworth Garden City.
Old Merchant Taylors’ were narrowly defeated 32-27 away at HAC, but will look to return to winning ways when they host Harpenden.
Neither Ickenham or Uxbridge could get results as they lost 26-0 and 14-6 respectively.
Both sides will look for better performances next week when Uxbridge host Old Isleworthians and Ickenham travel to Mill Hill.
