THEY'VE done it!

Congratulations to Seb Reynolds and all those involved at Rams after their sixth straight win – a 45-21 success at Clifton – ensured they are National Two South champions.

It's a magnificent achievement and they've been the dominant force in the league this season, having racked up 26 wins from their 28 games so far.

It must be particularly satisfying for skipper Tom Vooght, who joined the club as a four-year-old mini, but he was quick to pay tribute to his comrades after the championship had been secured.

He said: “They are natural leaders. It’s like having 15 captains on the pitch. It’s that and sheer hard work which has got us there in the end.”

So Rams will be among the top 40 clubs in English rugby next season, but first they have the chance to put on a show for their home fans against Birmingham & Solihull on Saturday.

They'll pick up the trophy after the game and then finish their season at likely runners-up Canterbury the following week.

Another side looking for silverware are London Irish, and after a week off they return to Greene King IPA Championship action at home to Hartpury RFC on Sunday.

If Ealing Trailfinders slip-up at Jersey Reds the day before, a victory against second-bottom Hartpury would be enough for Exiles to seal a return to the Gallagher Premiership.

So best of luck to Declan Kidney and his side.

As for my boys Reading, we collected five Southern Counties North points in sad circumstances as basement boys Littlemore conceded the fixture due to one of their squad suddenly passing away.

However, as it was one of the last vice-presidents' lunches for our president Ian Cameron Webb, they kindly sent over a mixed side of first team and second team players for a friendly, which we ended up winning 57-12.

We had a side comprising a mixture of veteranss, youngsters, first teamers and even head coach and director of rugby, Andy Arter.

There were some very entertaining moments in the match, which was played in good spirit and we thank Littlemore for coming over.

We end our season at Marlow on Saturday.

Lastly, Reading Abbey produced a great comeback to beat High Wycombe 34-24 ahead of their finale at Littlemore on Saturday.
