Burnham let lead slip

Tiverton 17 pts

Burnham 15 pts

BURNHAM continued with their lack of form against Tiverton, partly through key players injured or unable to play because of work commitments.

They started well enough and after 10 minutes scored a well constructed try. A well-controlled scrum followed by a smart backs move created space for Hayden Tuttiet to score in the corner.

Tiverton came back and after successfully securing a line-out following a penalty, they drove over to move 7-5 ahead.

In the second half, Burnham appeared to shake off the lethargy and after some concerted pressure they set up Phil Hobbs to peel off the rolling maul and force his way over. Piper converted to make it 12-7, soon followed by a Piper penalty.

Unfortunately, Tiverton did not read the script and crossed Burnham’s line twice to run out the 17-15 winners.
