Ruthless Reds run riot to steamroller Lydney
Redruth 69 Lydney 0
Redruth totally outplayed Lydney at the Recreation Ground scoring 11 tries without reply to maintain their push at the top of National League 2 South, reports Bill Hooper.
Perhaps a little guilty of slow starts against Barking and Chinnor in previous weeks there was no such sluggishness against the Forest of Dean side as the Reds tore at their visitors from the kick-off.

Ben Priddey got through a tremendous amount of work in the back row and he was involved in the build up to Owen Hambly's try in the fourth minute which opened the Reds' account.
Lydney's best scoring chance of the game came shortly after when a strong run from his own half by Alex Hall saw the full back hauled down just short of the line by Nick Simmons.
Simmons was soon back involved at the other end scoring his side's second try.
Scrum-half Greg Goodfellow was on fire, his scorching breaks finally paying dividends as he scored Redruth's third try.
The try-scoring bonus point was wrapped up before half-time when Craig Bonds finished off a break from, Paul Thirlby, who had kicked three out of four conversions for 26-0 half-time score.
It was more of the same after the break. Tom Notman scored Redruth's next two tries, with Thirlby adding a further conversion before departing the fray.
Simmons then completed his brace as Notman turned provider following a great run by the full-back from his own half.
Lock Damien Cook then got in on the act crashing over for try number eight, with replacement Murray Westren kicking the first of his three conversions.
Neal Turner was on hand to finish off some great work for the next Reds' score.
Fittingly, it was the sheer pace of Goodfellow that rounded off the show for the Reds scoring the final two tries to set up next Saturday's mouth-watering home match against Hartpury College.
