AFTER a four week lay off due to weather and there being no matches, the Exmouth RFC Quins squad travelled to Torquay to resume their league campaign.

In appalling conditions it was going to be the team that made the least amount of mistakes that would capitalize, and it was Exmouth that made the early mistakes, allowing Torquay to run in three tries in the first twenty minutes two of which were converted making the score nineteen points to nil.

In the closing minutes of the first half the Quins started to string together some good moves in particular some good forward drives, however, Torquay's defence was just too good and the Quins were unable to cross the Torquay try line.

The weather conditions for the second half deteriorated even more with a gale blowing onto the Quins backs and the rain pouring down the game was becoming a bit of a lottery.

Exmouth finally crossed the Torquay try line mid way through the second half when number eight Ben Waistell finished off a good forward drive and fly half Richard Cadywould converted the two points.

As the weather closed in the Referee called a halt ten minutes from time with Torquay winning 19-7.
