Devon, needing to win the game to progress to the semi-final stage of the competition, went down 26-7.

Conditions were tricky throughout, but it was Cockles’ players who accounted for the Devon points with Sam Fulthorpe scoring a trey and Harry Ottaway tucked away the conversion.

Devon’s defeat ends their Jason Leonard County Championship campaign, but it’s been a great experience for the six Cockles’ players that have been involved; Sam Fulthorpe, Harry Ottaway, Callum Wood, Charlie Mears, Matt Seager and Ethan Langson Justice.

As well as the six players who have been on Devon Under-20 duty this season, the Cockles have also supplied players for the Devon Under-15 boys and both the Devon Girls U15 and Devon Girls U18 squads.
