CHINNOR were involved in another National League 1 thriller, but conceded a last-gasp try in a 33-33 draw at home to Rosslyn Park.

The visitors went 14-0 up, thanks to tries from Mike MacFarlane and Greg Lound, the latter converting both.

Caolan Ryan replied with a penalty, but the Chinnor fly half went off injured moments later.

Craig Holland took over the kicking duties and his penalty further reduced the arrears.

Will Bordill then crossed, Holland converting, to cut the deficit to a point.

But Dan Laventure touched down, Lound converting, for the visitors, before Holland’s penalty saw Chinnor trail 21-16 at the break.

Holland then converted his own try to put the hosts in front.

And it was soon 33-21 when Ben Thomas went over, Holland, who also went on to kick a penalty, converting.

Rosslyn’s Adam Frampton crossed, Lound adding the extras, to set up a tense climax.

The visitors piled on the pressure and Nev Edwards crossed in the last play to level the scores but, to Chinnor’s relief, Lound’s conversion attempt fell short.

Henley Hawks climbed to second in National League 2 South when convincingly beating Clifton 47-12 to earn a sixth successive win.

The hosts led 26-0 at the break, thanks to tries from Liam O’Neill (2), Marcus Lowe and Brad Cook, Finn Pietersen adding three conversions.

Bentley Halpin’s try, converted by Brad Barnes, cut the deficit.

But Sam Lunnon (2) and George Wood crossed, Pietersen converting all three tries, to stretch Henley’s lead to 47-7.

Clifton went over late on through Darren Lloyd, but it was only a consolation as Hawks had already done more than enough to secure victory.
