NEWTON ABBOT'S improved commitment to tackling won a tough match at Devonport Services 29-7.
Both sides battled well but Newton's excellent rucking opened Devonport up for Alex Suarez to power home.
The swirling wind made kicking difficult so Newton relied on their passing to good effect, with Myron Ward dotting down closely followed by Cameron Bruce. Then Nathan Lane was fed on the wing to skip past tackles to score in the corner.
Devonport's quick penalty caught Newton off guard to go to the break 7-24 down. Tom Schafer was the only scorer in a scrappy second period.
NEWTON ABBOT prepared for their Devon Cup semi-final against Topsham with a 10-try victory over Paignton at Queens Park.
The All Whites led 21-5 at the break thanks to two tries from James Bright and one from Peter Deacon. Cameron Fogden converted all three.
In the second half Newton piled on the points with scores from Fogden (2), Josh Lyden (2), Joe Kitto, Jack Trout as well a third try from Bright.
Fogden was successful with all but one conversion to make the final score 68-5.
Having stretched their unbeaten run to twelve matches the Whites now welcome the defending cup champions to Rackerhayes on Sunday.
TOTNES arrived at Exeter Saracens with only sixteen players so some players had to play out of position. Despite this Totnes quickly took control of the game and went on to win 54-10.
Despite dogged defence Totnes took full advantage of a scrum on the 20m line when an overlap saw Adam Cambell cross the line to score.
Prop John Berry was soon set up for a second Tots try before Saracens piled on some pressure, relieved by a Will Throgmorton kick upfield. Totnes chased it down with flankers William James and Felix Clarke and prop Berry getting there in support to turn the ball back for Campbell to run in his second try.
Saracens came back strongly. Using their power in the ruck and maul they drove their way down the pitch and despite Totnes' efforts powered over the line to score, bringing the score to 15-5.
Soon after, Saracens' defensive line was broken by centre Tom Stone who managed to side step his way to the line to score.
Then Embury made ground, popping the ball out to Ruttley who motored up the wing. Stone was well placed in support, crossing the line once more, making the half time score 25-5 to Totnes.
Saracens scored soon after the break but Totnes replied equally quickly with another try from Adam Campbell after a long run down the pitch.
Great team work from Totnes saw Stone score three more times and Cambell another in this half. Two of the tries were converted – one by Throgmorton and one by Aiden Coburn. Man of match awards went to John Berry for his hard cover tackling and support play and Adam Campbell.
