Harvard Sports Club went two points clear at the top of the Trinidad and Tobago Rugby Football Union (TTRFU) Toyota Championship Division following their 82-14 demolition of Rainbow in Marabella yesterday.
Defending champions Caribs RFC stayed close behind the leaders in the Toyota Championship with a 12-3 win over Trinidad Northern in the Bruno Brown Cup at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain.
It was Caribs' second consecutive win in the Bruno Brown Cup after last year's triumph, again over Northern.
Caribs' second division side was also victorious at the Oval yesterday, whipping Northern's second division team 22-8 to win the Raffie Hosein trophy.
In their Toyota Championship match at the Oval yesterday, Caribs went ahead in the first half, with Ryan Brown scoring the first try after a five-yard scrum. Caribs scored the conversion to take a 7-0 lead heading into half-time.
But it could have been more after Jason Clarke intercepted a pass and ran towards goal, but was eventually brought down within inches of scoring, Dwight Pollemis making the crucial tackle.
Northern fell further behind in the second half with Abdiel Giles scoring a try to break the game open, after which Northern could not find a way back.
Justin McLean converted a penalty in the second half to give Northern their three points of the match.
In the other Toyota Championship encounter yesterday, Royalians demolished Police 48-0, with James Phillip scoring three tries and Mark Roberts, two.
Felician Guerra also got onto the scoresheets, scoring one try and four conversions, while Christopher Mitchell and Joel Quammie scored one try each.
