SEB Reynolds was delighted with his Rams side after they ran in eight tries in a 48-22 bonus-point National One win at Canterbury.

The visitors were on fire from the start and scored their opening try in the first minute, Jamie Guttridge going over at the back of a rampant rolling maul.

A Dan Smart penalty trimmed the gap, but Connor Hayhow surged in from 30 metres out for Rams' second try and Tom Vooght went over at the back of another maul.

Tristan King pulled a try back for the hosts, but Rams' bonus-point was sealed early in the second quarter when wing Jak Rossiter collected a beautiful cross-kick from fly-half Alex Seers.

Tyler Oliver was driven over from a Canterbury rolling maul following some indiscipline from the visitors, but Rams scrum-half Jack Moates grabbed his side's fifth try as they went in 29-17 ahead at half-time.

The away side moved further in front when Hayhow ran another powerful line to grab his second, and while wing Charlie Grimes crossed for Canterbury, that was as good as it got.

Rams moved further in front on 73 minutes when Andrew Humberstone finished a smart move, and Rossiter then showed dazzling footwork to complete the scoring as the clock ticked down.

Rising to third in the table ahead of the visit of table-topping Rosslyn Park on Saturday, Reynolds reflected on a job well done in Kent.

He commented: “The players did a really good job and bounced back well from last week’s defeat.

"Our forwards got a good platform in wet conditions and our backs were superb at taking their chances. Connor was a real threat for us and deserved his two tries and Jak’s last try was sublime. His footwork to get the score was just brilliant."
