Newton Abbot entertain touring side Long Buckby in a high scoring tight game

This was an extremely enjoyable game to watch, with Newton abbot taking a very early lead. Long Buckby then fought back during a fairly even half to lead 5-14 at half time. Long Buckby started the second half the stronger of the two sides and extended their lead to 5-19. This prompted a spirited fight back from the All Whites as they responded with two tries to level the scores. Long Buckby then took the lead again, this time the Newton Abbot fight back consisted of two tries as they took the lead. They held the lead up until the last minute of the game when the touring side managed to salvage a draw with the last play of the game. This was a really good workout against a very big physical team and despite the absence of several players the All Whites played some good rugby. Final score Newton Abbot 33 Long Buckby 33
