Coventry Rugby Club beat Barking at Butts Park Arena 26-14 this afternoon.

A crowd of 1121 saw Tibbatt put Coventry ahead with a 17th minute try.

O'Connor converted for the extra two points before Yellowless ran in a try for Barking which Ratford converted.

In the 29th minute, O'Connor kicked a penalty and then kicked another ten minutes later before completing his hat-trick of penalties with a penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

O'Connor had no luck with his kicking in the second half following a 58th minute Barker try and one from Tibbatts six minutes later.

Although a Boughton try converted by Ratford in the 71st minute, reduced the lead, Coventry ran out worthy 26-14 winners.
