Verulamians kept pace with the league’s top sides with a sixth successive win.

The 38-15 success at Barnet Elizabethans moved Vees to within four points of London Welsh Amateurs in third and nine of the promotion spots in Herts Middlesex One.

They racked up five tries on their way, Sam Allen getting two of them and Tim Rangihuna, Ben Russell and Cameron Craig the others.

Russell also added all five conversions as well as a penalty.

Despite the sunshine the pitch was waterlogged in parts making foot placement and passing treacherous at times.

But the Verulamians’ forwards were in fine form, swooping on any loose ball and rucking remorselessly.

James Hayes at wing forward and hooker Harry Mack ensured that tight play and sharp tackling snuffed out Barnet’s attacks.
