KILBURN Cosmos kept alive their hopes of a top-half finish after sweeping aside basement boys Harlequins Amateurs 41-6 at Gladstone Park.

The Cosmos ran in seven tries, including a debut score for winger Shaun Hill, and will be hoping to replicate this performance in their remaining three games of the Herts/Middx Division One season.

Harlequins missed an early penalty attempt - and that proved to be the only time they got close to the lead as Kadir Mastan opened the scoring for the Cosmos after eight minutes.

The centre dodged four would-be tacklers to touch down under the posts after a lineout in the visitors' 22 and scrum-half Matt Bridge added the conversion.

A string of injuries and worsening drizzle disrupted the flow of the game, but Kilburn's forwards dominated and gained their reward when Hill went over on the right.

Bridge's conversion sneaked in off the post to make it 14-0, although the visitors did reduce the arrears by slotting a penalty on the stroke of half-time.

Cosmos made their superiority count five minutes into the second period, with flanker Chris Slowley capping an energetic all-round display by touching down following a series of mauls from a lineout.

Five minutes later, replacement lock Morven White scored after the backs broke the gain line - and Kilburn were well out of sight when flanker Reon Craig drove over from close range.

Bridge's conversion made it 31-3 in the Cosmos' favour and, with 10 minutes left, hooker Peter Fitzsimmons pounced on a scrappy Quins lineout on their own five metre line to add a further five points.

Kilburn crowned their victory with a few minutes remaining when full-back Alex Binns finished off a flowing move for his side's seventh and last try.
