Saints cruise to the top of the table after win
ST Bernadettes are back on top of Somerset One thanks to a crushing 80-10 win away to fifth placed North Petherton.
It was a day to remember for No 8 Jordan Porter, who came on as a replacement late in the first half and finished with four tries, while there were also two scores from full-back Ollie James.
Blindside flanker Mike Sheppard, lock Ben Thomas, winger Sam Al-Faraj plus centres Callum Quirke and – on debut – Dave Burton were among the other scorers with Danny Harris booting ten conversions.
The result means Saints are three points clear of neighbours Bristol Barbarians after making the most of this game in hand.

In Somerset Premier, leaders Chew Valley are again eight points clear of chasing Midsomer Norton following a 32-10 victory at Wiveliscombe who turned around 10-7 ahead.
Chew, though, made the most of then playing down the slope to rack up win number 16 from 17 outings and move a step closer towards a return to Western Counties North.
Centre Chris Holley crossed in the first half.
And after the break there were touchdowns for Silas Cox and centre Dan Gatton (2) for Chew who are now away on Saturday to Weston-super-Mare, 62-7 home winners against Nailsea & Backwell.
Gordano had to settle for a losing bonus in a disappointing 12-10 home setback against Stothert & Pitt who went seven points up with a converted try.
The Portbury outfit levelled when centre Owen Abbott ran on to fly-half Joe Rowsell's nicely weighted kick through to cross under the posts, Rowsell converting and adding a penalty before the turnaround to make it 10-7.
Stotherts, though, reclaimed the advantage with a late try wide out. But there was still time for Rowsell to hit the post with a long-range penalty effort as another game slipped away from Gordano.
Coach Kevin Instance said: "This feels like another game that we should have won.
"Unlike many Gordano sides of the past that I have been involved with, this young group of players are really looking forward to playing on a firm, dry surface so that they can show their pace and flair."
Old Bristolians ended a run of two successive reverses in Western Counties North with a 28-12 win at bottom side Yatton.
The village side turned around 9-8 up before Old Bs powered clear.
Jack Price bagged a try and booted a penalty in the first period before Dan Evans and Roman Lagnado crossed while there was also a penalty try, converted by Price, who was on target with a further penalty.
Cheddar Valley RFC Vets went down 7-31 to Bristol Old Blues in a charity game which raised more than £300 for a five-year-old boy.
