The newly formed Exmouth and Withycombe junior girls’ rugby team has bagged itself a super sponsorship following news that the Exmouth branch of RGB Building Supplies is to back them.

A dominant first half display was ultimately decisive in the Withycombe Colts 24-17 success over Bideford.

Exmouth Colts travelled to Brixham for a friendly match and, for the second week in succession, the young Cockles went into a tough fixture missing several players and were only able to field a team of 14 which was again reduced to 13 with just 10 minutes played.

The only way is up from now on for Withycombe, who hit bottom in the Cornwall & Division after conceding their game against Penryn two weeks ago and are still there after a 50-point drubbing at Torquay last time out, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.

Exmouth Nomads were beaten 22-7 by Exeter Engineers when they pair met at Topsham, writes Rich Haynes.

Exmouth slipped to a fourth successive defeat when beaten 37-26 at home by Brixham.

A trip to Astley Park, Brixham is never easy and so it proved once again for the Exmouth 2nd XV, who went down 38-21 to a strong home outfit.

Exmouth head coach Steve Perry was left disappointed with his team’s performance after they lost at Bracknell.

Exmouth Colts were beaten 24-10 on their visit to Tiverton, writes Ben Tew.

Exmouth suffered a 27-17 defeat when they travelled up to Berkshire to meet Bracknell.

Exmouth Colts still sit top of their division, despite a narrow 24-22 defeat at Exeter Saracens.

Cockles head coach Steve Perry was upbeat after the defeat to all-conquering Bournemouth.

Withycombe Under-16s were narrowly beaten by Cullompton when the teams met in a Fisherman’s Cup fixture in Mid Devon.

Exmouth 2nd XV were emphatic 61-21 winners when they took on Devonport Services in a Devon Merit Table Division One fixture.

Exmouth had their season-long unbeaten home run ended as they slipped to defeat at the hands of a visiting Bournemouth side that continue to sport a 100 per cent South West Premier record, both home and away, after their 30-13 Imperial Ground success.

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.
