Top of the table (Sussex "Late Red" League Three West) clash between Horsham 3rd XV and Shoreham 2nd XV resulted in a resounding victory for Horsham.

Horsham now move 12 points clear at the top of the league and although there are still a few matches to go they have a very realistic chance of gaining promotion at the end of the season.

Although playing in very difficult and slippery conditions after a long Christmas break the players all contributed to some entertaining rugby.

The scoreline suggests a very one sided affair but in practice the main difference was some very strong and elusive running from the Horsham backs.

And with a very strong bench the result was never in doubt after the first quarter.

In other areas of the game it was a closely fought match played in a good spirit.

Credit to all the players, particularly Shoreham, for never giving up and to the Grounds Manager, Kim Platfoot for getting a pitch in readiness after what has been a torrid few weeks of bad weather.
