BASINGSTOKE RFC chalked up their second away win on the trot, with a 45-21 success at Millbrook.

The visitors bossed the first 40 minutes and by the end of it had already scored their bonus point try.

It took Stoke four minutes to get on the board as hat-trick hero in their last game Dave Lambert scored and Tom Humberstone added the two points.

Just two minutes later, the visitors doubled their tally. Ed Mallaby took a quick penalty to captain Rob Northcote and he offloaded to Humberstone to score and the score converted.

On the 25 minute mark, a good run from Humberstone saw him offload to Matt Guilfoyle to score and once again Humberstone kicked the extras.

Right on half-time, Stoke made it 28-0 as Guilfoyle scored again and Humberside put over the conversion.

After the break, the home side hit back scoring twice in the opening 10 minutes.

Stoke got back on track with another score after 58 minutes. This was after a loose kick was caught by Gareth Kelly and he ran 60 metres and scored in the corner and Humberstone converted for a 35-14 lead.

The home side scored their third try just after the hour, but Stoke replied from a driving maul as Simon Appleby touched down.

Then in the final few minutes of the game, the visitors wrapped up another great away win as Jon Bird went over after great work by Guilfoyle.

Next Saturday, Stoke are at home to bottom side Bognor looking to make it a hat-trick of wins.
