London North West Two
Hammersmith & Fulham 50-3 Hampstead
The visitors scored first and never again in a very one-sided game.
Hampstead were too busy fending off the Hammers battering ram that came at them from all angles for the next 78 minutes after they took a surprise early lead through a penalty.
It proved false hope for the north Londoners as H&F quickly recovered to pile on the points with a brace of tries from James Gallo and a score from Neil McClure, playing his last game in club colours before his return to hometown Leeds.
Dave Mannion, head coach, said: “Hampstead have been getting some good results lately so this was a great performance from the boys.
"The conditions were perfect for our style of rugby and it was a good send off for Neil who has given the club so many years of great service.”
Well-taken tries from wing James Lo and flanker Joel Rabbidge started the score board rolling in the first half as Hammers imposed their fast offloading game on the visitors and amassed a 24-3 lead going into half time.
Gallo scored the first of his two tries with a forceful fend and centre James Boyd-Moss ran over the Hampstead winger to get himself on the score sheet.
A rampaging run from prop Jacob Bray gave the home side an attacking scrum just five metres out, allowing Gallo to scamper over for his second, despite the attentions of the Hampstead back row.
Hammers turned the screw late on, with Hampstead flagging badly in the heat. Another burst from Bray put Gallo in space and full-back McClure popped up in support to go over in his Hammers’ swan song.
