London North-West Three Hampstead..........................56 London Nigerian...............8
Under-pressure London Nigerian received a welcome cash boost this week thanks to their handiwork with a camera.
The bottom team in London North-West Three will get the wages of coach Roger Coombs paid for by Puma after the sports giant gave the once over to a homemade DVD made by the Shepherd's Bush club.
Nigerians sent Coombs out to Nigeria for a coaching clinic back in August, where the 55-year-old lectured would-be coaches on teaching the game back home - and filmed it.
Puma now want Coombs to commit to other ambassadorial work in Africa in exchange for meeting his wage packet.
There may also be a commercial tie-in with a club without a major sponsor - one of the reasons they've been languishing in the doldrums for the last two seasons.
Coombs said: "Winston Bell-Gam from Nigerians is looking to increase commercial revenue for the club, and he sent this DVD.
"Puma liked what they saw, and are keen to get further involved."
WHEN you're down to the bare bones - it doesn't help when your No. 8 turns up 20 minutes late.
Rob Hartley thought he heard coach Roger Coombs say it was a 2pm pre-match warmup. By the time the tardy player took the field in north London his team-mates were a couple of tries down.
The Shepherd's Bush club were already missing Anthony Obiekwe, concussed during last week's defeat to Grasshoppers. And it got no better when others reported unavailable as Ns committed schoolboy error after error to gift Hampstead a raft of points.
Scrum-half Josh Bruce also got a knock to the head in the second-half, although the 17-year-old had the mixed blessing of recovering on the touchline to see his team ship a shed-load more points.
The one shining moment came from winger Leon Barrett as he offloaded outside to captain Ali Shelleng to run around and under the posts for Ns only try.Luke David kicked a penalty for the green shirts' other score.
