Twickenham suffered at the hands of bogey team Old Priorians for the fourth time in their past four encounters to concede the advantage in the London Division Two North West title race on Saturday.

League leaders Twickenham crashed 28-20 at home to their second-placed visitors, who will now win the league providing they collect two bonus point wins from their final two games.

Ealing-based Priorians, who have still to play mid-table HAC home and away this term, have lost just once all season and scored four tries at Parkfields to collect their 15th bonus point from 20 games thus far.

Head coach Clive See's Twickenham travel to league whipping boys London Nigerian for their final game this Saturday looking to collect maximum points in the hope Priorians slip up at least once in their two remaining games against HAC on April 12 and 26.
