Tor 12 pts

Clevedon 25 pts

THIS first-round Somerset Cup match was played in blustery conditions. Clevedon played with the wind at their backs and attacked from the first and took the lead after a quickly taken tapped penalty saw Owen Biggins go over for a try which Ben Hazeldine converted.

Clevedon had a great deal of possession but lost too many turn over balls. Good pressure by the Clevedon forwards resulted in Dave Rawle scoring a try wide out. The line-out worked well with Harvey Russell leaping well and quick ball off the top saw Tom O'Rourke go over for a try.

The second half saw Clevedon run everything instead of kicking into the wind. Ben Hazeldine increased their lead with a penalty. Tor, due to the wind, came more into the game and Clevedon had a great deal of defending to do.
