Dartmouth RFC 52 Tamar Saracens 5

Dartmouth welcomed Tamar Saracens to Norton after the previous 3 attempts to stage the
game in Ernesettle were postponed due to waterlogged pitches and snow. It was the last
league game of the season for both clubs.

Dartmouth started off well and scored after only 3 minutes when Jason Gibbs charged over
the line to score. Jack Clark scored the conversion to go 7-0 in front. Early injuries to player
coach Tom Clark and younger brother Jack saw Dom Calvert and Gary Rooney come on as
early replacements. On 24 minutes Richard Lobb found space and time to kick the ball over
the defence which Gary Rooney ran onto and scored between the posts. Luke Chase scored
the conversion to make it 14-0. With half time approaching Dartmouth managed one more try
with winger Sam Pearson going over the line to score and Luke Chase adding the extras to
leave the score at half time 21-0.

Two half time change for Dartmouth with Josh Bruckner and Xavier Picot making way for
Aaron Hunt and Jack Clark. Dartmouth started well again in the second half with Sam
Pearson intercepting the ball on the half way line and setting up Richard Lobb to score after
45 minutes for Dartmouth’s 4th try and a bonus point. Two minutes later and Dartmouth
produced the move of the match with Sam Pearson, Gary Rooney and Karl Caunter all
involved before the ball found itself back inside for Sam Pearson to finish off what he had
started to claim his 2nd try of the match. Jack Clark converting to make it 33-0. Two more
changes for Dartmouth with Luke Chase and Dom Calvert making way for Josh Bruckner
and Xavier Picot and it was Josh Bruckner who scored the 6th try on 66 minutes when a
clever kick to corner from Jack Clark was caught and scored by Bruckner. A head injury to
one of the Tamar players meant a 5 minute breather whilst he was treated and once play
resumed on 74 minutes Gary Rooney using all his pace scored his 2nd try of the match with
Jack Clark converting to make it 45-0. With 2 minutes left to play it was Dartmouth who
were on the charge again with Sam Pearson completing his hat trick of tries to score between
the posts to take his tally to 9 tries for the season. Hooker Nick Shillabeer, playing his last
game for the club before a well-earned retirement took the conversion and scored to make it
52-0. As the game drew to a close it was Tamar that kept going and with the last play of the
match scored in the far corner to finish the match 52-5. Rather fittingly it was Nick Shillabeer
that was awarded the man of the match in the clubhouse after and he will be greatly missed
next season.

It was a good performance from Dartmouth who leapfrogged over Totnes to claim 3rd place
in Devon 1 and secure their highest placed finish in many a season and on the whole the
season has seen huge progress as the club continues to grow.

Everyone at Dartmouth RFC would like to say a massive thank you to all our supporters that
have braved the weather this season to support the team and also to all our sponsors for their
continued support of the club.
