EALING Trailfinders continued their unbeaten start to the league season with an impressive 46-9 demolition of Dings Crusaders at Vallis Way on Saturday.
The home side ran in seven tries and restricted Dings to three Adam Westall penalties, claiming their second fourtry bonus point this term.
Westall and Ealing fly-half Ben Ward traded early penalties before Ealing scrum half Dan Smaje opened the try scoring, running in from the 22 after a quickly taken penalty, Ward adding the extras.
Westall reduced the deficit with a second penalty from the kick off.
Despite dominating territory and possession, Ealing couldn't break through a stubborn and sometimes desperate defensive line. But the visitors couldn't hold on.
After Dings were penalised for foul play, Ealing launched a sustained attack from the resulting line-out and made space for David Howells to dive over in the left corner. Ward kicked the conversion to put Ealing 17-6 ahead.
Centre Joe Price added to Ealing's tally on the half hour as the home side again piled the pressure on a stretched
Dings defence and Ward closed the half, barrelling over from short range for the bonus point try.
Trailing 27-9 at half time, Dings made the most of a better start to the second half when Westall slotted a simple penalty in front of the posts.
But Ealing regained their control and as they raised the tempo, hooker Andrew Dalgleish put the hosts further ahead, finishing off a direct
Ealing attack with a smartly taken try that Ward converted for 34-9.
Dings did not lie down and enjoyed their best spell of the game going into the last quarter. But a miserly Ealing defence, with flanker Harry Rowlands turning over possession at crucial moments, refused to allow Dings a try.
With time running out, Ealing sprang back to life and ran in two superb tries to add a deserved gloss to the result.
First Smaje set up Howells for a regulation run-in from a five-metre scrum.
Then substitute wing Kiba Richards finished off the best move of the game that saw the ball move through backs and forwards before Ward made a decisive break.
