Rested Fishermen set for ‘Cents’ clash

Still buoyed by their 35-33 away win over Camborne, Brixham should be well rested for the resumption of Tribute South West League action after the second seasonal ‘break’.

The Fishermen (third) inflicted a first home defeat on Camborne (second) with a rousing performance which produced tries by Matt Croscombe, Jason Capaldi, Connor Bedwell and Joel Ashworth, who also kicked 15 points.

They will be keen not to slip up against Gloucester side Old Centralians at Astley Park this Saturday.

‘Cents’ moved into mid-table with a 41-7 win over struggling Okehampton in one of the few league games which took place last weekend.

Camborne, who are nine points ahead of Brixham, will be hot favorites to win at Okehampton this Saturday, while leaders Chew Valley travel to fourth-placed Devonport Services.

There’s a tough assignment for Newton Abbot, who take on new Regional Two SW leaders St Austell at Rackerhayes after their narrow derby defeat at Teignmouth.

Paignton’s recent upsurge in form will be tested to the fullest when they travel to unbeaten Counties One Western West leaders Cullompton.

There’s also a big game for Torquay Athletic.

The Tics (third) go to Exeter Saracens in Counties Two Devon hoping to take advantage of whatever happens in the meeting of the top-two, Honiton and Tavistock.

Paignton 2nd XV enjoyed a 35-15 Devon West win over Plymstock Albion Oaks 2nds last Saturday, and they are home again this weekend, against second-placed Plymouth Argaum.

Saturday’s local league fixtures include: Regional One – Brixham v Old Centralians; Regional Two – Newton Abbot v St Austell, North Petherton v Teignmouth; Counties One WW – Cullompton v Paignton; Counties Two Devon – Exeter Saracens v Torquay Athletic, North Tawton v Brixham II; Counties Three DE – Torrington v New Cross, Buckfastleigh Ramblers v Tiverton II; DW – Dartmouth v Newton Abbot II, Paignton II v Plymouth Argaum, Plymstock Albion Oaks II v Totnes.
