The trip to Plymouth last Saturday ended with little return for Exmouth Rugby, going down 17-33 to Devonport Services.

The Cockles did score two super tries from Matty Ryan and the returning Lewis Geran, with Gareth Roebuck kicking two conversions and one penalty. Despite a resurgence during the second half, Exmouth could not make everything work for them.

Jake Inglis and James Clarke looked tricky with ball in hand, however it was the power of the home side driving maul, with close to try line weight that undid the defence in poor conditions. The travelling support endured heavyweight tries.

The hosts were better on the day, Exmouth will look to bounce back with a home game next weekend.

Team. Tommy Andrews, Charlie Gibbings, Brad Skinner, Jack Fahy, Oli Mason, Will Ridout, Liam Bayley, Dave Bargent, Matt Ryan, George Meadows, Jake Inglis, Robbie Weeks, Lewis Geran, James Clarke, Gareth Roebuck. Jack Madge, Nick Headley, Tom Mustoe.

On we go to the next game at home on Saturday. The visitors are Weston-super-Mare RFC, kick-off at 2.30pm. Exmouth will be looking to find their winning form in the first of two consecutive home games, with Ivybridge RFC visiting on November 18.

This Saturday will also see Exmouth Quins and Colts travel to Ivybridge and Plymouth. The Nomads are at home to Crediton.
