.Barking offended under pressure and Matt McLean  converted .  Worthing gradually turned up the heat and after 10 minutes Matt McLean was freed just inside the home half and paced to the try line.  Barking now started to labour in possession and soon lost two of their people to yellow cards for killing the ball in the rucks. This self- inflicted damage allowed Worthing to score two more tries, by McLean again, and James Arthur, taking the score to 3 – 20 at 35 minutes. We thought that another score before halftime would secure the win and sure enough Sam Hewick plunged through under the posts in typical style and the conversion made it 3-27 at the interval. The first period of the second half was a scrappy affair and at times supremely dull, then Worthing broke through again and Darren Clayton scored a well- earned try.   Matt McLean, on his way to a personal tally of 22 points, converted. With the score at 3-34 Barking were now losing their scrums and Worthing took complete control. Joe Govett  scored  a splendid individual try from a kick and chase, and following a fortuitous bounce Jamie Redmayne finished off  his introduction to the fray with a brace of tries.  Alex Neilsen touched down with still 10 minutes to go. The relentless conversion kicking by Matt McLean had moved the score 3 -58. Final score then 3-58 and another 5 league points gained. Team:   Matt. McLean, Jack Maslen, Kiba Richards, Darren Clayton, Alex  Neilsen, Ollie Luke, Joe Govett, Mickey Pointing, Matt Miles, Jordan McIntyre, Will Stutchbury, Charlie McGowan, James Arthur, Sam Hewick, Rob Smith. Replacements (all used): Joe Burns, Jamie Redmayne, Kieran Leeming, Matt Farnes, Pete Cleveland
