Exmouth RFC – how does the Cockles away form compare with other teams in the SW Premier Division?
PUBLISHED: 16:00 13 December 2018
Much has been written about the away form of the Cockles in their South West Premier division campaign.
The Cockles lost seven and won six of their first 13 games in what will be a 26 match season.
But, of those six wins, five have been at home and just one away – that the 25-21 Devon derby win at Newton Abbot.
So how does the Cockles away record this season stack up against the other teams in the division?
Table-topping Bournemouth were, until their most recent away game, sporting a perfect 100 per cent away record – that ended with their recent defeat at Maidenhead.
However, Bournemouth have already won at six away grounds this season (at Old Pats, Weston-super-Mare, Bracknell, Camborne, Drybrook and Exmouth) and that is two more than the four away wins so far for Barnstaple (at Old Pats, Weston-super-Mare, Cleve and Newton Abbot), Ivybridge (at Cleve, University, Old Pats and Brixham) and Brixham (at Old Pats, Weston-super-Mare, Drybrook and Exmouth).
Four teams have enjoyed two away wins this season so far: Weston-super-Mare (with wins at maidenhead and Newton Abbot); Camborne (with wins at Newton Abbot and Cleve), Maidenhead (with wins at Drybrook and Newton Abbot) and Drybrook - who are the visitors’ to Exmouth on the final Saturday before Christmas, who have won at Newton Abbot and Weston-super-Mare.
There are single wins on their travels for Cleve (at Old Pats), University (at Old Pats); Newton Abbot (at Old Pats) and Cleve (at Old Pats).
Two teams are yet to have any success on their travels and that’s Old Pats and Bracknell.
