Clevedon 12 pts

THIS was a great game played in windy conditions.

Clevedon, playing with a gale force wind at their backs, dominated most of the first half. Their line-out was good and the scrum solid and they took the lead with a well worked blindside move which Joe Kaniecki finished off with a touch down in the corner. Ben Hazeldine hit the upright with the conversion attempt.

Clevedon started the second half by defending well, but played mostly in their own half. They conceded too many penalties and Newton Abbott took the lead by kicking three of them. Clevedon were under pressure, but they tackled well to keep their line intact.
