Forgetful Totnes remember how to close out victory
TOTNES are urgently looking for a friendly game this Saturday to harness the momentum generated by their 21-12 win over Plymstock.
Coach Richard Burden was beginning to think Tots had forgotten how to win after losing their first two outings in Devon One following relegation.
Having gone behind twice against the run of play, 5-0 and 12-5, Burden was starting to fear the worse.
It all came good in the second half though and the only shame was it ended too soon!

"We were looking pretty good by the end against one of the better sides in our division," said Burden.
"What doesn't help is being in a small division with only nine teams. We have only played on three of six Saturdays so far – and don't have a league game this week either.
"We are definitely going into the fixture pool looking for a game to keep our momentum going."
The only down side from the win over Plymstock was losing opening try scorer Callum Browse to a back injury.
"Callum was caught late – after he had scored – by a knee in the back and was taken off to hospital just in case there was an kidney damage," said Burdon. "It seems all is okay."
George Palk landed two penalties after the break and converted an interception try by Tim Martin to seal it.
