Last week Ampthill 1stXV secured a bonus point win away at Moseley despite a strong second half comeback from the home side, promotion rivals Old Elthamians failed to secure the 4 try bonus point restoring Ampthill’s lead at the top of National 1 to 5 points. OE’s have another tough game this week away at Bishop’s Stortford, it is possible that Ampthill may secure promotion to the Championship this weekend, be there or you’ll regret it.
