David Coyle was inspirational, scoring four tries, as Verulamians notched up their fourth Herts/Middlesex 1 victory on the bounce.

Last week, Vees were simply superb, running in nine tries in a 63-3 rout of Haringey Rhinos. Coyle started that game on the bench but still managed to stamp his name on the game, with a try, an assit and many forward surges.

The no.8 was at his scintilating best again on Saturday as he burst through the line twice in the first half as Vees turned around 19-0 ahead.

Feltham’s tackling had kept the score down in the first period but their over-enthusiasm saw several yellow cards, which furthered Vees’ control on the game.

Coyle crossed the whitewash twice more, earning Vees a bonus point, after the forwards pinned Feltham deep in their own territory and Kiwi centre completed a comprehensive victory.
