CLEVEDON lost this highly entertaining game because they did not kick their attempts at goal, poor line-out, and a moment's lack of concentration.

The came started with a lot of scrappy play.Clevedon took the lead with an interception try by Tom O'Rourke, but he kick failed and then missed a relatively easy penalty. A good attacking move ended with Clevedon kicking away possession when a pass may have resulted in a try and they again missed a kick at goal.

Then came the lapse in concentration. A penalty attempt at goal by Cullompton drifted wide, but instead of Clevedon catching the ball they let it bounce and the hosts poached a try, which they converted. They increased their lead with a penalty and led 10-5 at the break.

Clevedon started the second half with a bang and scored an excellent try with Mike Lowis coming into the line, but again the kick was missed.
