There’s a historic event in terms of junior rugby taking place this coming Sunday (December 16) at the Imperial Ground, Exmouth, when a combined Withycombe and Exmouth girls’ team takes to the pitch for its first-ever game.
Honiton 2nd XV travelled to North Devon with the club’s 1st XV for a ‘double-header’ with hosts Torrington and it was a happy return journey as the 2nds emulated the senior side, winning their game 55-12, writes James Foot.
Withycombe suffered a disappointing afternoon at their Raleigh Park headquarters as they slipped to a 19-17 defeat at the hands of a Wessex side winning only their second game of the Tribute Cornwall and Devon League campaign.
Sidmouth Chiefs continued their move up the league table with a fourth consecutive win at the expense of fellow strugglers Falmouth, defeating the Cornish side 24-19 on their own pitch, writes Terry O’Brien.
Honiton claimed a superb clean-sheet victory as they defeated Tavistock for the second time in three weeks, beating the Moorlanders 34-0 to maintain their pursuit of the top three in the Tribute Cornwall and Devon League table, writes Jerry Rice.
