Ealing Trailfinders bounced back from their defeat away at Barking with an eight-try rout of Havant. David Howells added four tries to his season's tally as Ealing ran out 50-5 winners at Vallis Way.
Ealing were immediately on the attack and missed a string of early chances, but it wasn't long before fly-half Ben Ward made space for full-back Pete Hodgkinson to run in the game's first try after seven minutes after the Ealing pack stole a ball against the head.
Despite taking the lead, Ealing did not settle and continued to struggle to take a firm hold of the game as the early errors continued. But the visitors were also unable to maintain much pressure as Ealing's defence forced regular turnovers.
On 20 minutes, Ealing added to their lead after centre Mark Tucker fielded a Havant clearance kick. Tucker looked set to run the ball, but instead put in a deft crossfield kick for Howells to collect and the wing beat two Havant defenders to run in his first try of the game.
Tucker turned try scorer a few minutes later after Hodgkinson burst through the Havant line on half way. The full-back offloaded to flanker Jay King who gave a simple pass for Tucker to finish.
Harry Rowland then crossed for Ealing's bonus point before Ali James ran in a try with the last move of the first half. Ben Ward converted both to give Ealing a 29-0 half-time lead.
Howells was on the score sheet again immediately after the restart, crossing in the left corner following a scrum in midfield.
But the prolific winger had to wait until the 60th minute to complete his hattrick as Ealing failed to capitalise on their possession against a resolute Havant defence.
Facing a whitewash, Havant raised their game and when an Ealing penalty gave them a line-out in the home 22, they were able to craft room for centre Chris Sullivan to score the visitors' only points.
However, it was Howells who had the final word. Ward's chip over the Havant defence looked to be going dead, but the Ealing wing never gave up and a kind bounce allowed him to touch down for try number four.
Ealing travel to the Forest of Dean this weekend to face Lydney, who are sitting one point and one place off the bottom of the league table.
