Saints continue to pile up the points as they crush Castle Cary
ST Bernadettes continued their superb start in Somerset One, making it six from six with a 57-12 home crushing of Castle Cary.
The Combination side were out of sight after building a 31-0 half-time advantage and kept the pressure on to win with plenty of spare.
Saints have now piled up 284 points, and conceded only 30, and already appear to be in a three-way fight with leaders Midsomer Norton and local rivals Bristol Barbarians for the two promotion slots. It was a day to remember for former skipper Sam Al-Faraj, pictured, who bagged a hat-trick on the wing, while there were doubles from man-of-the-match Luke Fraser and Ollie James.
Ben Thomas also crossed while there were 17 points from fly-half Dan Harris who bagged a try and added six conversions.

The Barbarians overcame Clevedon 35-25 to remain in third place.
In the Premier Division, Gordano made it five from six with a 20-12 home defeat of Tor, but are fifth after once again failing to secure a bonus point.
Early tries from Ash Cotterell, Tim Statton and Joe Harris, who shrugged off the effects of jetlag after returning only the day before from Australia, put the Sharks in command.
But the elusive fourth try never materialised as Tor dug in and rallied with two tries of their own.
Coach Kevin Instance said his side's lack of ruthlessness and inability to finish off sides would be urgently addressed.
He said: "There are sides above us in the league who have won fewer games but who have benefited from bonus points."
Old Reds, despite being hit by a series of late changes, were comfortable 37-15 home victors over Nailsea & Backwell.

Nathan Burnell (2), James Wilmott, Paul Todd and Mark Ward grabbed tries with Mike Patterson landing three conversions and two penalties for Reds.
Leaders Chew Valley continued their impressive form with a 31-17 triumph at Winscombe.
The tries came from James Tanner, Darren Jefferies and Tom Bryan (2) with Alex Cameron booting the remaining points.
For Winscombe, Lois Hooper and Tom Knock crossed with James Carter slotting two conversions and a penalty.
