Dartmouth lose to Experienced Kingsbridge side in Friendly
Kingsbridge A XV v Dartmouth 17-08-18
Kingsbridge A XV 48 Dartmouth RFC 0
Dartmouth made the short trip to Kingsbridge for their first pre-season friendly on a glorious Friday evening with the pitch looking in immaculate condition.
Dartmouth were up against a very experienced Kingsbridge side which included a mix of first and second team players and their experience showed with the home side running in 4 first half tries. Dartmouth battled well and had good 10 minute spells either side of the break with good possession in the opposition half but never really troubled the Kingsbridge back line. The home side then scored 4 more second half tries to win comfortably 48-0.
Dartmouth have a lot to work on before the start of the league campaign but at this stage of pre-season, fitness is key and it was great for the team to get 70 minutes of game time.
Dartmouth would like to thank everyone at Kingsbridge RFC for their hospitality and look forward to the repeat friendly fixture when Kingsbridge travel to Norton Playing Fields on Saturday 22nd September.
