    By Adam Hookway

    Tonbridge Juddians continued their winning run at The Slade as they took on Guildford for the first time in National 3 London & South East.

    The hosts, in fourth place, began strongly against the side promoted from London 1 South. Liam Prescott slotted two early penalties, then Adam Darracott crashed over for TJs’ first try with Prescott converting.

    James Copsey added a second to make it 18-0 at the break.

    In the second half a penalty try for TJs was converted by Prescott. Zain van Rensburgh crashed over for the fourth, and a bonus point, with Prescott again on target. Murray Galbraith-Low added a fifth score before Guildford managed a consolation try at the death.

    Coach Pete Dankert was pleased ahead of some tough matches, saying: “It was great to get through without adding to our injury list. There are more big games to follow and we will need a full and fit squad to ensure we keep on track.”

    TJs have confirmed the signing of former Wasps and East Grinstead player Ben Ashmore.
