Josaia Visei thunders through the Newbury defence from near the halfway line for Marlborough's 2nd try
Newbury 32 - 22 Marlborough
A bitter October afternoon at Monks Lane provided the setting for a superb game of rugby in the Wadworth 6X South West 1 East. The cold wind and autumn drizzle only seemed to add to the excitement inside the ground, with the atmosphere energetic throughout. Both sides had won all seven league games, with the Blues only ahead by a single bonus point, so something had to give and the crowd expected a very tight encounter.

Witney 12 - 40 Marlborough
Marlborough recorded their 7th win in 7 games with an away victory over Witney. This keeps them just behind league leaders Newbury Blues. There were a number of positional changes due to unavailability for various reasons and also the returns of Garth Bari, Will Grant and Sam Gouldbourn.
