Marlow’s men continued their perfect start to 2019 as they notched their seventh consecutive win in all competitions as they beat Bicester 30-13.

Maidenhead RFC were denied victory with the last kick of the game as they were held to a 27-27 against Weston-Super-Mare away from home.
Weston opened the scoring and took control of the opening exchanges taking a 12-0 lead, before Macauly got Maids on the score board.
Maidenhead cut the lead to just two as Foxley went over, but Weston-super-mare reclaimed their seven point lead on the stroke of half-time.
But Maids levelled the score after a catch and drive was stopped illegally from the hosts resulting in a penalty try, making the score 17-17.
Injuries forced Maidenhead into shuffling the pack as Weston took advantage, moving into a 24-17 lead, scoring out wide before nailing an impressive conversion.
It was then heartbreak for Maids, as a penalty from Runciman and converted Leonard try looked to have given the visitors a hard-earned 27-24 win, but with the last kick of the game Weston-super-mare slotted a penalty to tie the game.
