Both teams should be congratulated on a fine display of attacking and disciplined rugby. It was a shame someone had to come second in this well-contested match.

Exmouth started well, showing great skill in the back and forward divisions to score through Dan McCloud after the forwards and backs linked well.

Continuity and support play was the key factor in this victory.

There always seemed to be a player to continue the forward momentum and it was centre Tim Green who was next on the score sheet.

McCloud added his second before Newton Abbot, who were always in the game, replied with a converted try late in the second half.

Jake Gauntlet had an outstanding game and Anthony Tribble caused problems for the Newton defence with his elusive running.

Ty Tuckett had a successful run out at flyhalf. He mixed his game with a variety of breaks, passes, kicks and runs which always had the opposition guessing.

Skipper Joe Parkin went off injured and Dan Loveridge, in his first match back from injury, proved to be an excellent stand-in.
