STROUD won for a fourth consecutive weekend on Saturday as they maintained their impressive start to 2024.

They came out on top of their clash with Old Cryptians 33-21 in what was an entertaining affair in the Counties 2 Tribute Gloucestershire North.

It took 25 minutes before the visitors got themselves on the score sheet through Thomas Johnson.

Harry Cadwallader-Rowles also crossed the line in the first-half before a second-half double from Frederick Pollard and another for Johnson wrapped up the bonus-point for the away side.

Dylan Kay added four conversions as he put in a near-perfect afternoon from the tee for Stroud.

The recent form has seen Stroud move from lower-mid table to fourth place in the standings, whilst Old Cryptians remain rooted to the bottom of the table with what was their 14th defeat in 14 games.
