Melksham contiue there winning run
Melksham are a point behind Bradford in fourth after their 26-5 success against Chippenham 2nd at Oakfields.
The battle for territory ebbed and flowed for the first 30 minutes until the Melksham backs co-ordinated an attack through midfield, with winger Callum Gillard offloading to full-back Cameron Bull, who stepped defenders to break the deadlock, fly-half Callum Hurn adding the extras.
In the second period, home captain Charlie Radcliffe finished a break down the blindside to touch down in the corner.
Three minutes later, from broken field play, centre Ben Brown carved through midfield to score, Hurn slotting the extras.
Chippenham got on the board with an unconverted try but Melksham's forwards battered away at the line and Matt Plumb forced his way over, Hurn completing the scoring with the conversion.
