Battersea Ironsides climbed to second in the London Division Three South West table on Saturday thanks to a 27-20 win over Old Tiffinians.

The match marked the return to action of skipper Marcus Bailey after a three-week absence through injury, and he was the first man on the scoresheet.

Seb Jones made it 10-3, and after another Old Boys penalty, Tom Quinn went over to make it 15-6 at half-time. 

Guy Newman converted his own try to give Ironsides clear air, before Tom Wapshott got over the whitewash in the corner for the all-important bonus point.

This weekend, Ironsides travel to Old Mid-Whitgiftian, in 10th, while Camberley, the leaders by four points, go to rock bottom Purley John Fisher.
