Withycombe suffered a thoroughly disappointing second successive Tribute Cornwall and Devon defeat when beaten 23-0 at Raleigh Park by visiting Wellington.

Having played Wadebridge Camels some four weeks ago and losing heavily, Honiton 2nd XV were keen to salvage some pride, but the visitors had a very strong side that is obviously keen to travel distances to get games and they won an entertaining Allhallows encounter 40-24.

With five minutes of their South West Premier match at Camborne remaining, Cockles fly-half George Meadows coolly slotted a 25-metre drop goal, to seal the team a 22-20 victory to end a run of four straight league defeats.

A huge team spirit was demonstrated by an impressive Cockles squad south of the border to bring back victory to Devon.
