DESPITE a much improved performance, Tynedale crashed to their sixth successive defeat on Saturday at the hands of Richmond.
The 44-31 reverse leaves them 13th in National League Division One, one place above the drop zone.
A first minute try by Harry Peck, was followed by one by George McGuigan, both of which were converted by Matty Outson, who also added a penalty to make it 17-17 at half time.
The Londoners then ran away with the game, leading 41-17 at one stage, but Tyndale came back with late tries from Peter Cole and Alex Fieldhouse to claim a deserved losing bonus point.
Tynedale hope to stop the rot on Saturday, when Fylde are the visitors for a 2pm kick-off

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
