Canterbury try to break away from Dorking

Canterbury maintained their 100% record in National League 3 London & South East after a 44-19 win over Dorking - their 19th successive win.

The damage was done in the first half, with the hosts rattling up 34 points to leave the visitors' promotion hopes almost terminally damaged.

Ricky Mackintosh's fifth-minute opener set the tone, and Canterbury were two tries to the good five minutes later through Martyn Beaumont. Beaumont added a further five points through a conversion and penalty, and seven more were on the board with a second Mackintosh try and another Beaumont conversion.

A yellow card for former Canterbury player Quin Wiseman was punished with a catch-and-drive try by Peter Kelly, and Nik van Mol got his name on the scoresheet, Beaumont again adding the extras, before the interval.

An even second half saw three Dorking tries, but Canterbury were always in control and touchdowns from Paul Brown and Tom Best underlined their class.
