Olney sit fifth in Midlands 2 East South after a thumping 53-0 win over bottom club Rushden & Higham.

It took the home side just five minutes to get the scoreboard moving, with Jordan Letts touching down and Patch Adamns kicking the extras for 7-0.

The lead was doubled five minutes later when lock Cameron Kok crashed through the defence and Adamns doing the business again for 14-0.

A converted penalty try, an Ollie Francis score and another from Isaac Shields made it 33-0 to the home side at the interval.

With the game effectively won, it took until the hour mark for Olney to score again, as Jim Osborn scored.

Olney pushed the depleted Rushden forwards off the ball and scrum half Keenan picked up to add the try for 43-0.

Gareth Carhill rounded off an excellent afternoons work scoring ‘one for the pack’ to make it 48-0.

And into injury time at the end of the game, winger Kane Russell rounded out the scoring.
