Richmond Rugby 26 – Hartpury University 61

Hartpury were eventually comfortable winners in this first-round, first-leg Championship Cup tie, although a Richmond development XXIII were very much in contention until half-time.

Hartpury accumulated nine tries in the game, the scorers being Aled Ward, George Simpson (2), Sam Smith (2), Harry Short, Joe Howard, Matty Jones and Dale Lemon, much of it resulting from slick back play. Tommy Mathews, who had a good game overall, added points from the tee.
