BASINGSTOKE RFC suffered their third straight loss in London Three South West as they went down 31-0 to visiting high flyers Eastleigh.

When they faced their Hampshire rivals earlier in the season they lost 31-3 and Stoke found it even tougher to get points in the return at Down Grange.

The visitors scored twice in the first 40 minutes, one of which was converted as they led 12-0 at the break.

They added another three tries after the interval to complete the victory.

The loss for Stoke sees them slip to fifth in the table.

Next weekend, Basingstoke have another Hampshire derby game, when they travel to United Services Portsmouth, which is their final away league game of the season.
