Nottingham were unable to claim the victory on their trip down to London, as Lonson Scottish won their third game in a row

Hooker Jack Musk, who is dual registered with Harlequins, was sensational for the home side, bagging a hat-trick and showing the hallmarks of a technically gifted front rower.

Jack Ingall gave the hosts the perfect start when he crashed over, released by quick hands from his forward colleagues, though Nottingham’s response was clinical.

Richard Clift was teed up for the equalising score, but shortly after, Musk slickly with Tom Marshall off his own lineout throw to cheekily scurry home down the blindside, adding another minutes later as he was pulled over by the men around him.

Following a slotted Morgan Bunting penalty, Marijn Huis dove over the line for his side’s fourth try of the game after the ball was kept alive by Musk, Ingall and Harry Sheppard.

Harry Clayton got over for the Archers right before half time to give his side some hope, and then Archie van der Flier made it a two point game with over 20 minutes to go.

However, Dan Nutton put his name on the scoresheet to make the difference nine, and shortly after, Musk used brute force to push over the line to complete his hat-trick and Matthew Wilkinson added a seventh to put the nail in the coffin

Jack Dickinson ensured Nottingham would travel home with a bonus point with two minutes to play, but it was a convincing victory for Scottish in the end.
