ON a day of wonderful weather, Clevedon produced a feast of running rugby, with a fine all-round team performance.

Clevedon started well against a huge Torquay pack who were going to suffer later in the game due to the heat and took an early lead, when a clearance kick was charged down for Simon Johns to score a try.

The big crowd were enjoying the rugby produced by Clevedon and the fact that the visitors never gave up. The second row pairing of Wayne Wheeler and Ryan Smith played well and their work around the field was a credit to them. Ben Hazeldine increased the lead with a penalty. Mike Lowis put in a superb performance of counter attacking .The defence in midfield of Rory Biggins, and Simon Johns well orchestrated by Tom Thie was outstanding.

Torquay while running the ball out of defence had a pass intercepted by Hazeldine to score his second try which he converted. All this good play happened because of the platform given by the pack, especially the front row of John Potts, Gary Carpenter and Ben Stone.

Clevedon had the final say when Grant Cherrington went over for the final try. Joe Williams making his debut as a scrum-half played well with his back row of Owen Biggins Dave Rawle and Harvey Russell.

Next Saturday, Avonmouth away, kick-off 3pm.
