Stowmarket maintained pressure on leaders Southwold at the top of the table with a well-deserved victory against struggling Newmarket.

The opening kick-off saw Stowmarket spill the ball, but from the resulting Newmarket drive there was a turnover, the ball was pushed wide to full-back Dan Garrard and he ran through to score and kick the conversion.

Australia-bound centre Max Crowe then ran through for two further converted tries and to confirm that he will be missed.

In this period Newmarket had managed a penalty and, shortly before half-time, were rewarded with a well-converted try.

The second half saw the game more and more moving to Stowmarket’s favour as they proceeded to run in a regular supply of tries via Dan Garrard, Bradley Durrant, Scott Woolnough, Nick Faliveno and Joe Lancaster.

In a fast moving game Stowmarket put in a mixed performance. It was good in places, but at times there was also a little loss of control at crucial moments.

Prop Ben Honeyball can consider himself a little unlucky to take a yellow card towards the end of the game.

This weekend see a rest from league fixtures and a game against Datchworth in the RFU Senior Vase.
