Tiverton II 3, Exmouth II 72

Exmouth 2nd XV travelled the short distance to Tiverton for their third Devon Merit Table 1 game of the season, following wins against Newton Abbot (44-7) and Sidmouth (92-3).

The team this week contained different personnel but was just a strong as previous weeks with the inclusion of Bob Armstrong, David Kimberley, Matt Garner and Glenn Channing to compliment the talented regulars.

Exmouth’s first try came on sixty seconds when scrum half Greg Towns darted over following a driving maul set up by Armstrong on the 22. Richard Cadywould added the extras and the scene was set for another demolition of a local second team.

Paul Flower was next to score the first of his two tries after being driven over from close range but Tiverton began to fight back and on 11 minutes they landed a penalty to claim their only points of the day. Immediately from the restart Matt Garner glided over from a fine individual run. Cadywould converted Garner’s try then got one himself from Jamie Briant’s run through the wilting Tiverton defence. With the conversion successful the scoreboard showed 26-3 after 15 minutes.

Before the half time break No.8 Armstrong had barrelled over and Flower had claimed his second, with both tries coming from scrums taken against the head by the Exmouth front row of Andy Lendon, Mick Smith and Josh Sargent.

With both conversions just failing Exmouth started the second half 36-3 in front and showed no indication of letting Tiverton off the hook as Mick Smith supported Glenn Channing to go over two minutes after the restart.

A great team try was next on the agenda with slick handling from both forwards and backs to put Cadywould over for his second of the game. Following his successful conversion Cadywould broke out from his own 22 to take play up to the opposition line. Frantic Tiverton defending was penalised and Kimberley scored from the quick tap.

Exmouth continued to express themselves with Matt Ryan again breaking from his own line. After exchanging passes with Kimberley, the flying wing scorched past the flailing defence to bring up the team’s tenth try.

With Tiverton completely demoralised Kimberley went over for his second, followed swiftly by substitute Ben Higgins from another driving maul. Cadywould missed the conversions but, as the referee blew time 10 minutes early, he can feel satisfied with his 22 point haul.

The final score was 72-3 in Exmouth’s favour, further highlighting the strength in depth at the club and the gulf in standard between themselves and the majority of other second string teams in the league.
