UXBRIDGE RFC have not given up on the Herts/Middx Two title – despite losing to main championship rivals Harrow on Saturday.
Uxbridge remain second in the league, despite going down 33-5 to the leaders, but have warned Harrow the fight is not over yet.
Mark Wilson scored Uxbridge's only try early in the second half, but Uxbridge failed to take advantage of the pressure they put Harrow under for large spells.
Director of rugby Gareth Nicholls urged his side to take out their frustrations on Harlequins Amatuers this week and pull off a giant-killing.
He said: “We play Harlequins Amateurs in the cup on Saturday, and they are a league above us, but the lads will be ready to get stuck into them after working hard for no reward at Harrow.
“But dominated for long periods, but conceded a sloppy try just after we scored ours, and that was our chance gone, as Uxbridge had a game plan and stuck to it.
“Promotion is still very much on, and all we can do is take care of our results. But the title race is not over, and they still have to come to our place.”
Elsewhere, in the Uxbridge derby, Ickenham went down 40-5 at home to Old Abbotstonians. Ickenham remain bottom, still without a win all season, while Old Abbostonians moved up to seventh with their thrid success of the campaign.
