Milton Keynes are keeping pace at the top of Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier with a crushing 64-0 win over bottom side Wheatley.

The first half was controlled by MK in all aspects of play and at half time city had a lead of 47-0 with tries from winger Dan Pearson, number eight Dan Rolfe (2), second row Ben Fisher, flanker David Brown, winger Nathan Thomas, scrum half Rob Lasbrey. 6 of the tries converted by full back Brian Purcell.

The second half was a very different game as City failed to maintain the same level of control and that combined with Wheatley battling hard in all their endeavours, resulted in MK only scoring another 17 points.

Tries from winger Michael Dean(2) and hooker Lewis Barnett. Dean converting one of them.

After this strong win MK travel away to Princess Risborough.

>> Olney were thoroughly beaten by Oadby Wyggestonians 87-7 to slip to eighth in Midlands 2 East South.

Despite a valiant effort defensively the visitors conceded five tries, four converted in the first half.

Tries continued to flood in in the second half, though John Robinson got Olney on the board, with Kane Middleton kicking the extras.

>> Bletchley Ladies continue their remarkable undefeated streak, beating Rugby Lionesses 44-0 on Sunday.
