National League 3 London & South East champions Canterbury rounded off their home games in style with a 48-5 win over CS Rugby 1863.
An second-minute try from the visitors was not what a season's-best crowd wanted to see, but Canterbury overcame a stuttering start - including the sin-binning for prop Jim Green - to hit back with Martyn Beaumont's penalty and a 21st-minute try from Ricky Mackintosh. Beaumont added the extras for a five-point half-time lead.
Canterbury upped the tempo at the start of the second half as centres Juan Del Val and Paul Brown opened the way for Tom Best to score, with Beaumont converting.
Two tries in two minutes strengthened Canterbury's grip on the game. Flanker Max Cantwell scored an individual touchdown and, from the restart, Wim Baars powered through a huge gap and found Peter Kelly who did the rest.
A second yellow card, this time for Mackintosh, failed stop the hosts adding 19 points late on. Dave Marshall, Beaumont, who kicked five conversions in all, and Mackintosh, back from the sidelines, all went over for a seven-try win.
