Sevenoaks 3rd XV beat Dover 10-3 at Dover on Saturday 10 October. This was a well dug out win against an organised Dover 3rd team. This typically prosaic appraisal of team manager Pip Woolacott sums it all up:

"Basically we were awful at the breakdown, but forward power won through. Two tries from driving mauls from captain Tom Kelly off the line out, capabily thrown in, by man of match and war horse Rob Thurnell.  

"Number 10 Jack Curnow provided the backs with some momentum and power running from Coetzee ensured that the 3s were never really in trouble...yet what should have been free flowing rugby was left to the stick it up the jumper brigade."
