Exmouth played host to Bristol-based Old Redcliffians on Saturday and, though the game failed to reach any real highs, a five point win with a nap hand of tries, represents a solid Cockles performance, writes Chris Wright.

Another milestone for Devon Rugby as Exeter Chiefs hit top spot in the Aviva Premiership, admittedly only for 24 hours as Northampton Saints eased back to the top spot on Sunday, but Chiefs still hold second spot with a third of the season gone, pretty good in my book.

Withycombe Under-11s good work in recent weeks was brought to an abrupt end at Cullompton last Sunday as the home team secured a win and a draw in the two matches played.

Withycombe Under-12s were beaten 33-7 when they came up against a well-drilled and noticeably more sizable opposition in hosts Cullompton.

Withycombe’s 14-game winning run was ended in Cornwall where they fell to a narrow two-point 37-35 defeat to hosts Saltash.
