Tabard finished the season on a high with a fabulous seven try haul and a comfortable 44-13 win against Woodford.
The five points helped them move up one place to ninth, leapfrogging Enfield Ignatians in the final London North West Two standings.
It had been a tight affair at the start of the season with the teams playing out a 17-17 draw and it looked like this game may follow suit.
Woodford opened the scoring with a penalty in three minutes before Tabard went over for the first try, Joe Calnan putting Tom King in close to the posts.
Jack Reilly added the conversion.
Liam Glynn’s try-saving denied the hosts a certain score but the Radlett club were powerless shortly after as Woodford crossed for what would be their only try.
Their last points came on 26 minutes with another penalty putting them 13-7 ahead.
