Rugby Roundup: Windsor RFC on the home straight with three games to go.

Anthony Andrews’ (above) Windsor side were awarded an away win after Littlemore cancelled their clash last Saturday. 

Slough will be looking to avoid their third defeat in a row at Bicester on March 23, having been beaten

26-7 at home by Aylesbury last weekend. The Greenies were no match for their in-form visitors, despite having home advantage.

On the face of it there's little for the Greenies to play for in the remaining weeks, other than pride. They're likely to finish second from bottom with High Wycombe's recent improvement leaving them 12 points adrift of the 10th placed side.

Leaders Windsor were awarded an away win after Littlemore cancelled their clash on Saturday, a result which keeps them on course for the Southern Counties North title. 

With only three matches to go Windsor hold an almost insurmountable 11 point lead over second placed Buckingham.

Buckingham kept pace with a 39-24 win at Reading but they're quickly running out of games in which to catch the leaders. 

On Saturday week (March 23) the leaders are back on home turf at home to Wallingford, a side they edged out 16-14 at the beginning of December. Their visitors weren't in great form last weekend, losing 41-10 to Stow-on-the-Wold.

Maids jumped into third place at the weekend, capitalising on Ivybridge's loss at Barnstaple by beating Old Patesians 27-15.

Old Patesians would be relegated with a loss and it showed as they battled hard against a Maidenhead side who needed a win to keep pace with next weeks opponents Barnstaple.

Maids led narrowly at the break but a much-improved second half performance saw the Berkshire side stamp their mark on proceedings as Dave Cole, Tod Muil and Dylan Baptista all got on the scoreboard.

Marlow saw their perfect start to 2019 snapped by close rivals Buckingham two-weeks ago, but responded brilliantly in their 45-5 victory against Wycombe on Saturday.

It was a dominant performance from back to front for Marlow, who scored seven tries, including a hat-trick from Maddern, as well as kicking five conversions through Anthony Lawless

In the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier Division Drifters played out an entertaining, if unsuccessful, 35-21 defeat at Hungerford. Defeat leaves them six points behind eighth placed Hungerford with a game in hand. They visit fourth placed Milton Keynes a week on Saturday (March 23).

Phoenix were thumped 65-5 at Abingdon on Saturday. They're next in action at Chipping Norton on Saturday, March 23.
