Thurrock started their London One South campaign with an impressive 32-22 victory against Westcombe Park.

In front of a large home crowd and following on from defeat at Sevenoaks last week, Thurrock started well.

Jake Barrand was successful with two penalties in the first quarter, and that was quickly followed by a well-worked try from the same man which he converted to put Thurrock into a 13-0 lead.

On the 30 minute mark James Cameron scored a penalty followed by a try from Cassius Deschamps which was unconverted.

But there was still time for Barrand to convert another penalty for a 16-8 lead.

The visitors reduced the deficit within a minute of the restart after a high kick was not dealt with and Dan Hamilton sprinted through to score with Cameron adding the extras to reduce the lead to one point.

Barrand added another penalty to increase the lead but a converted score put Westcombe Park three points clear.

But debutant centre Niall Clifford crashed over close with Barrand converting and adding two further penalties to secure the points.
