East London ran in 11 tries in an emphatic 67-7 win over London Three Essex rivals Maldon at West Ham’s Memorial Ground.

The home side opened the scoring on two minutes from a line out close to the Maldon line, as the forwards collected the ball and drove over in the left corner for hooker Lewis Bourke to dot down.

The visitors missed a penalty on 14 minutes but scored their solitary converted try soon after, but their lead lasted only five minutes as East won a lineout on the left and moved the ball along the backs for right wing Max Stanyard to score on the right.

Stanyard showed his ball dribbling skills on 34 minutes to kick forward twice and dive on the ball under the posts, with Ryan Billinghurst converting.

And the lead was extended close to the break when left wing Sean Cooper took a pass from full-back Alex Pearmain to go over.

That gave the hosts a 22-7 lead and bonus point and scrum-half Will Brown scored within four minutes of the restart, with Billinghurst converting.

Number eight Nick Parrott was next over the line, after good work by second row Matt Schofield and replacement Murray Dunn, with Billinghurst adding the extras.

And a break by Brown on 57 minutes fed Mo Akbar for the first of two tries from outside centre, converted by Billinghurst.

Dan Bracken broke soon after and offloaded to Brown to cross, but he popped a short pass to Akbar for another try converted by Billinghurst to bring up the half century.

Maldon were not helped by losing a player to a yellow card on 67 minutes and two minutes later blindside flanker Simon Edscer added to the lead.

Parrott added his second try with four minutes left which Billinghurst converted and Cooper completed the scoring at the death.

East London are set to visit Braintree on Saturday and head coach Eddie Gooby said: “All credit to Maldon who battled to the final whistle but we just had too much power and pace in a one-sided second half where we scored 45 unanswered points. While this wasn’t a complete performance in certain areas, we are still improving overall.”

East London: Hogan; Bourke; Coman; Schofield; Staples-Preston; Edscer; Brown; Parrott; Brown; Billinghurst; Cooper; Yiannakou; Akbar; Stanyard; Pearmain; Samuel; Dunn; Bracken.
