Esher 42-17 Plymouth Albion

Esher kept their slim hopes of avoiding relegation alive as they beat Plymouth Albion 42-17.

Tries from Seb Stegman, Peter Sinott and Mark Atkinson gave Esher an 18-5 advantage at the break.

Ian Kent, Ignacio Elosu, Johnny Hilton and Sam Stitcher all went over in the second period as the hosts secured a bonus point.

Plymouth's tries came from Aaron Carpenter, Wayne Sprangle and Sam Hocking.

The bonus point win gives Esher a chance of survival if they can repeat the trick at London Scottish and the home side fail to pick up a point of their own.

Albion will be mightily relieved they are already safe after their second heavy defeat at Molesey Road in two months.
