Hendon’s seconds are out of the Herts/Middlesex Merit Table Four North East Cup following a 28-24 defeat to Hertford fourths.

The game started well for Hendon who matched their opponents in all quarters with a well worked try by Richard Sharples under the posts which Ryan Murtagh converted.

A Murtagh penalty made it 17-14 to Hendon, before Hertford’s back powered them over the line for a converted try.

Skipper Aiden Brennan-Power barged over for a try that was converted as Hendon regained the lead once more, only to be dealt a hammer blow when Hertford with the match-winning score.
