Chiltern travelled to near neighbours Luton and came away with a bonus point 26-5 victory to move them a couple of places up London 1 North Division.

Chiltern went off like a rocket, an early scrum after Luton knocked on saw the Chiltern pack demolish the Luton scrum. A quick ball was moved wide for centre David John to stride through the defence for the first try which was converted by Stuart Pearham.

Ryan Greenstreet then ran through a couple of tackles for Amersham before passing inside to Ben Pothecary who in turn sent Pearham over under the posts. The try converted and Chiltern were ahead by 14 with only 15 minutes played. .

With a quiet next hour, Chiltern wasted countless chances to extend their lead. Two tries were disallowed with the referee in the wrong position to see what had occurred but Chiltern should still have been able to rise above things. Well into the second half and after a successful catch and drive yielded an unconverted try for Luton, Chiltern finally woke up. First a series of scrums, which followed several more penalties, led to Ollie Cato forcing his way over for an unconverted try and then after an excellent scissors move in the backs replacement wing Iwan Thomas sliced through the Luton threequarters to run in a 50m try which was converted by Pearham to make the final score 26-5 to Chiltern.

Saturday is the last home game before Christmas when Eton Manor will be the visitors to Weedon Lane (kick off 2pm).
