Exmouth all set for Saturday's home meeting with Brixham
PUBLISHED: 12:34 07 November 2019
The Cockles return to league action this Saturday (November 9) when they entertain Brixham at the Imperial Ground.
With last weekend being a matchday 'off' across the leagues it means this Saturday's game is the first outing for the Cockles since their 12-0 defeat at Bracknell.
What's more, they head into the meeting with Brixham looking to end a run of three straight defeats for, prior to the game at Bracknell, they were beaten 63-7 at Weston-super-Mare and, in their most recent home game, went down 25-23 to the 100 per cent side Barnstaple.
Since 2010 Exmouth and Brixham have met five times at the Imperial Ground and the Cockles have certainly held the upper hand, winning four of the meetings.
That said, the only time that Brixham have enjoyed a win in Exmouth came when they visited on December 1, 2018, when they took the honours with a 37-26 success.

Dec 1, 2018 Exmouth 26, Brixham 37
