St Albans Rugby Club are hoping that their 32-14 win over Old Merchant Taylors’ is the catalyst to a rise up the London North West Three table.
Both teams needed a win to kick start their season, having each only won one of the opening four fixtures.
But Saints dominated, producing a performance built on a strong defensive line and solid team effort.
Early pressure forced OMT to give penalties away, handing Albans good field position, and they took full advantage when Oliver Fountain went over in the corner.
Harry Trude added a conversion then a penalty but two interceptions and two converted tries put the visitors in front.
