Nuneaton 55 Preston Grasshoppers 24
Unbeaten league leaders Nuns, who have been winning without playing well recently, produced by far their best running rugby of the season, scoring eight of the touchdowns in a 12-try extravaganza.
With scrum-half Huw Thomas back from long-term injury but fly-half Gareth Cull out for a spell, Nuns rejigged their back line, Pete Glackin coming in for Cull and Phil Reed, emergency scrum-half recently, switched to the wing.
Tim Stimpson and Jody Peacock swapped places to outside centre and full-back respectively. Reed got three tries for the third time this season, taking his tally to 15, Peacock scored two and Stimpson landed six conversions and his only penalty attempt.
It was 28-12 to Nuns at half-time after Reed's first two tries, Peacock's first and one by No 8 Ben Toleafoa had been answered at 14-0 and 28-5 by Preston tries from fly-half Paul Bailey and hooker Richie Sands, Bailey converting the latter.
Inside centre Simon Brocklehurst increased Nuns' lead with a try soon after the break before Preston were awarded a penalty try, converted by Bailey, and Stimpson converted Reed's third outstanding try, then added his penalty goal.
Replacement winger Will Hughes ran in Preson's final try, Peacock thrust over for his second and teenage winger Lee Parry scored his tenth in 12 games in his first season of senior rugby.
