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.

Vees will hope to continue this good run of form when they travel to Bank of England on Saturday.
The second XV completed a good day for the club with a 22-0 victory over Berkhamsted in the Herts Merit Table.
They are also away on Saturday with a trip to Harpenden.
