CLEVEDON attacked from the first whistle and should have scored with the first move of the game and they also missed an early penalty attempt.

Good possession won by the forwards saw Clevedon use the blindside and Owen Biggins went over in the corner. Ben Hazeldine then kicked a penalty before Owen Biggins went over for his second try.

Ivybridge, who were still on the bus, then had a player sent off for foul play. Clevedon were intent of running the ball at every opportunity and should have increased their lead but the final pass either went astray or possession was kicked away badly. On the positive side the scrummaging was superb and the line-out was good.

The second half saw Clevedon increase their lead with a Hazeldine penalty,but slack play let Ivybridge back into the game, and with good support play, score a try. They were now putting their game together, but a dropped ball in midfield was pounced on by Simon Johns who sprinted in for a well-taken try.

The Clevedon pack was led by John Potts and gave the backs a good platform but too many chances went begging. Ivybridge pressured the Clevedon line but good work in defence kept them at bay.

A loose ball was picked up by Harvey Russell who ran 40 metres before passing to Ben Hazeldine to go over for the final score and a well deserved victory to keep Clevedon in the top five in the table.

Next Saturday, Newton Abbott away, coach leaves 11am.
