SEDGLEY Park moved to within three points of top spot in National Two North after inflicting a first home defeat of the season on Chester.

General manager Geoff Roberts described his side’s performance as ‘”impeccable” after they ran in five tries – picking up an 11th bonus point of the season – to win win 31-7.

An already perfect day was made even better after leaders Stourbridge fell to a second straight defeat to leave just four points separating the top five teams, with Sedgley in fourth.

But, while the Tigers are now right back in the title race, Roberts preferred to bask in the glow of his side’s latest scintillating display.

“We put in an impeccable display, to be quite honest,” he said. “I don’t know if they got out of their own 22 in the first half hour.

“I am just so chuffed with our performance.

“When we are in that sort of mood we are unbeatable, really.”

Chester held out for 28 minutes before Tom Bedlow finally broke the deadlock.

Tries from Max Skofic and Callum McShane followed, with Steve Collins kicking two out of three conversions to send them into the break leading 19-0.

Matt Crow pulled a try back for the hosts, who had won all five of their opening home league games, but the revival was short-lived as Oli Glasse and Danny Maher rounded off the scoring with two more tries for Sedgley inside the hour mark.

“We had all the territory so there were no spectacular tries from distance, we just broke them down,” said Roberts. “Everything we did was accurate, we carried the ball well and all our passes went to hand.

“What it was like to play against I don’t know. When we are in that sort of mood it must be hell to defend against us.”
