Gravesend ended a run of four straight league defeats with a home win over Staines on Saturday.

All four of those defeats had come on away soil but they bounced back on their own turf with a 27-20 win.

Gravesend were 6-0 up early on in the National League 3 London & SE match through two Dave Dorton penalties.

A try wasn’t long in coming and Ian Harman was the man to touch down after being given the scoring chance by Ashley Moorey.

Dorton kicked successfully again to give Gravesend a 13-0 lead inside the opening 10 minutes.

A converted try for Staines pulled it back to 13-7 but Moorey’s pace opened the opponents up and Adam Bishop grounded. Dorton converted with the last kick of the half.

A Staines penalty made it 20-10 and more points followed with another converted try.

Gravesend ended the game on a high, with Bishop scoring his second try of the game and Dorton converting.
