Verulamians produced arguably their best performance of the season as they beat Old Millhillians 50-0 at Cotlandswick.
The win came despite the wet, cold and blustery conditions that would normally have dictated a game fraught with errors.
But for some reason this spurred Vees to produce some scintillating, cohesive and mistake-free rugby.
The forwards also contributed with a momentum and tenacity that ensured the team remained on the front foot.
By half-time Vees had raced into a 31-0 lead with Tom Baker, Sam Townsend, Sam Allen, Alex Ricci and Ben Russell scoring tries.

Russell also added three conversions.
And there was no let-up after the restart with Sam Crowne, Sam Townsend and a second for Ricci adding to the try count.
