Exmouth and Bournemouth have met in five of the past seven seasons with the 10 matches seeing four wins for Exmouth and six for Bournemouth.

Exmouth are all set to entertain South West Premier Division table-topping Bournemouth on Saturday (November 17).

After a week without action the previous Sunday owing to scheduled opponents Taunton cancelling, Honiton Hawks Under-10s were back in action last weekend with matches against Exeter Athletic.

With no league fixture for the Exmouth Colts, a last minute friendly was set up at the Imperial Ground with Somerset side Wellington.

Cockles head coach Steve Perry was left feeling very deflated at the full-time whistle on Saturday afternoon.

Exmouth Nomads were 43-0 winners when they travelled over to Mid Devon to face Tiverton 2nd XV.

Exmouth 2nd XV were beaten 33-26 on their visit to Barnstaple for a Devon Merit Table meeting.

Exmouth ultimately suffered a third away defeat of the season when beaten 25-21 at Barnstaple, but a superb opening 15 minutes from Cockles, indicated that they had travelled with intent.

Two tries from John Parkin and one from Jimmy Holman secured a vital losing bonus point for Withycombe in what was a much-improved performance from the team as they were beaten 24-17 on their visit to Tavistock for a Tribute Cornwall and Devon League contest.

Exmouth 2nd XV staged a remarkable recovery to retain their table-topping status in the Devon Merit table after a 29-19 win at Services.

We spoke with Cockles’ head coach Steve Perry on the Monday after the Saturday before and the Cockles’ home win over Old Patesians.

Exmouth served up some scintillating rugby to effectively have their home meeting with bottom side Old Patesians ‘won’ before the end of the first quarter of the action and they went on to register a half century of points, winning 50-24.

Withycombe colts were 24-17 victors when they travelled to Tavistock for a friendly fixture.

Withycombe and Exmouth met in an Under-13 game that saw two large squads of players give action to no fewer than 50 young rugby players.

Exmouth head into Saturday’s South West Premier home game against Old Patesians boosted by the return of Ross Morshead and Nick Halse, who both missed last Saturday’s first away win of the season – the Cockles’ 25-21 success at Newton Abbot.

Withycombe colts went down 37-33 in their meeting with Brixham.

Exmouth colts went down 43-22 when they entertained Plymstock Oaks in a first league game of the new campaign.

Exmouth 2nd XV emulated the Cockles 1st XV with a win over Newton Abbot, in their case a Devon Merit Table 56-34 score.

Exmouth recorded their first away win of the South West Premier League season with a 25-21 victory at Newton Abbot.

Exmouth enjoyed a week off last Saturday as did the remainder of the South West Premier teams, but all are back in action this Saturday when the Cockles will be looking to secure their first away league win since November 2017.

Exmouth Nomads were in hastily-arranged action at Cullompton where they produced a dominant performance to win 53-5.

Exmouth colts’ planned fixture with Sidmouth was cancelled due to Sidmouth not having a colts team this year, so Okehampton were pleased to visit for a friendly due to their own match also being cancelled, writes Taylor Masters.

Withycombe slipped to a second successive heavy Tribute Cornwall and Devon defeat as they went down 69-3 at South Molton.

Exmouth 2nd XV were in dominant form as they won 75-12 on their visit to Teignmouth to contest a Devon Merit table fixture.
