Verulamians powerless to stop Datchworth from claiming promotion

Verulamians were unable to stop a determined Datchworth from sealing promotion after succumbing to a 66-7 loss.
The Villagers bagged 10 tries in total, with Sam Brunton in metronomic form with the boot as he converted eight of them.
It was a deserved promotion for Datch who along with London Welsh have been the stand-out performers in London Three North West this season.
And it was never in doubt after they went at almost a point a minute for the opening 30 minutes.
However, Vees still have plenty of fight in them despite a difficult year and they were rewarded before half time with a try from Tim Fretter.
And they kept the hosts out for a good 20 minutes after the break until superior fitness and clinical scoring finished the contest off.
Verulamians will look to finish their season off on a high note when they host Kilburn Cosmos in a 3pm kick-off at Cotlandswick on Saturday.
