Half-time replacement Rich Cadywould helped Exmouth to a 21-12 victory bon the Devon derby against Newton Abbott.

In the other National Three (SW) matches Old Redingensians were 22-17 victors over Old Centralians and third Brixham thumped Chard 62-7.

In the SWP League Eastern Division, Axminster Town bagged back-to-back wins, emerging victorious by the odd goal in eleven at home to Liverton United, but Sidmouth Town’s Eastern Division game with hosts Tavistock fell to an unfit surface.
