    In local rugby on Saturday in the regional one south west Exmouth Cockles lost by 30 points to 10 at Old Centralians and once again the result could have gone either way until the closing stages and they need to get in the habit of concentrating for the full 80 minutes.

    In regional division two Sidmouth kept their unbeaten record with an impressive 24-18 victory over previous league leaders St Austell at the Blackmore ground and Crediton take over at the top of the table with a 43-17 win at Somerset side Wellington, but Teignmouth are still looking for their first win after their poor start to the season continued with a 55-31 defeat at Truro.

    In Counties one western west Cullompton remain unbeaten and head the table after a 37-19 victory over Wiveliscombe at Stafford Park and Topsham stay second after a massive 76 points to 17 win over visitors Paignton at the Bonfire field, Tiverton also had a big home success beating Penryn 54-21 at Bolham road.

    Finally in the counties Devon division Withycombe narrowly lost to South Molton by 22-19 at Raleigh Park but Honiton had a good 43-29 victory over Barnstaple second fifteen at Allhallows and Exeter Saracens had a close 28-26 win over Exmouth second string at Imperial Road.
