East London Wyverns 89 Rochford 10

THE WYVERNS, East London's second team, cemented their position at the top of Merit Divi-sion Four with a resounding home win on Saturday.

Despite a last-minute reshuffling of the team due to unavailability, the Wyverns outclassed their opponents.

One of the late changes saw wing Matt Stockwell move to outside centre, which turned out to be an inspired move as Matt Banahan finished with an impressive tally of six tries.

Apart from the heroics of Matt Stockwell, Richard Wheadon and Frank Murphy also produced some fine offensive play, while Steven Dezso and Jack De Santos showed great commitment in defence.

The Wyverns play Maldon's second team this weekend as they look to continue their fine run of form.
