WITH neither side in the promotion or relegation zones, this match could have been lacklustre, but both sides played with ambition and commitment.
Heathfield infringed right from the kick-off and Warlingham full-back Mark Kozminski opened the scoring with a long-range penalty.
Fly-half Asa Wright piled on the pressure with a perfect kick to the visitors' five-metre touch, but a knock-on thwarted their endeavours.
Heathfield struck back with their first penalty after an offside offence, but Kozminski put Warlingham ahead again with a second penalty.
Warlingham had their tails up and Wright's well-timed pass to Tom Street secured the first try. Kozminski converted and then struck a third penalty to put Warlingham in the driving seat at the turnaround.
Heathfield raised their game in the second half and grabbed a second penalty, but any forward momentum was snuffed out by crunching tackles, particularly from No 8 Ollie Dodwell.
The Warlingham pack stamped their authority on the game, and when the ball was quickly recycled, Wright swept to the blind side and found Street in the tram lines. With much to do, Street just grounded the ball before he was bundled over the corner flag. Kozminski's conversion hit the upright.
Lock Neil Robson was harshly yellow-carded, and Heathfield completed their scoring with a third penalty, before Warlingham's captain Zack King slipped through for the third try, followed by prop Kieran Scutt crashing over for the bonus point fourth try.
