All credit to both sides who came out in less than ideal conditions and managed to turn in a show of enterprising, attacking rugby with impressive handling on display from both teams.

Ultimately, the girls from Winscombe proved too strong for their Devon hosts and ran in a total of 10 unanswered tries.

After a competitive first 10 minutes, Lucy Burgess opened the scoring for the visitors in the corner following a strong run down the right. Liliana Podpadec added the conversion with an impressive kick from the touchline.

There followed scores from Emily Czechowski, Ellie Darby, Amy Godwin, Hattie Stephens, Chantelle Hartnup and four tries from the formidable Charlotte Wright-Haley, Lucy Burgess adding a further three conversions.

On a day better suited to water polo than running rugby, the best move was initiated by Podpadec, who gathered the ball on her own 10 metre line and made a strong run down the touchline.

The ball was recycled and went through a dozen pairs of hands before Czechowski made the decisive break, but was well tackled short of the line, Beth Woodcock, in support, gathered the ball and fed Amy Godwin to score.

All credit to Crediton who played to the end and whose brave tacking prevented an even larger scoreline.
