Kilburn Cosmos began their Middlesex Merit Table season with a hard-fought 25-22 win at Hammersmith & Fulham.

Last season’s meetings had been split, but Cosmos got the upper hand after a frantic clash at Hurlingham Park.

Max Hudson gathered a chip to barge over in the corner for the first try, which Hughie Molloy converted, but other chances went begging.

The hosts hit back with a try from a maul and then saw their scrum-half go under the posts to put them 12-7 up, before Niall Coghlan saw an unkind bounce rob him of a chance to score late on.

Teddy Peck came off the bench with half an hour left and went over, then saw a chip kick gathered for Coghlan to score in the corner and make it 19-12.

Hammersmith replied with tries either side of a yellow card for Hal Norwood to go 22-19 up, but Kilburn dug deep and Molloy levelled with a penalty, then slotted a long range drop goal as the tension grew to win it.
