Camborne 31 – Newton Abbot 32

Determination succeeds in the Duchy

Thanks to a dominant third quarter that yielded 20 points, Newton Abbot “All Whites” did just enough to overcome a no-nonsense Camborne outfit who were losing for the first time this term.
The visitors retained their unbeaten tag, but this victory in Cornwall was in stark contrast to the clear cut wins over Bracknell and Weston-super-Mare.
Those games saw winning margins of 67-12 and 54-5 but Camborne made Newton work every inch of the way. The home side led 19-12 at the break and clawed back all but one point after trailing 32-19 on the hour mark.
After the break, Newton cut the deficit with a pair of regulation Rob Avery-Wright penalties and then added a couple of tries, both converted to establish a 12 point lead.
Prop Lloyd Radford was the architect of the first of these scores; he pounced on the ball when a Camborne attempt at a quick “22” drop out went drastically wrong. His co-forwards produced quick second phase ball that centre Kevin Dennis put to good use with a try. Dennis then finished off a spell of off-loading interplay to score his second.
Camborne hit back with tries from James Goldsworthy after a steal at a ruck, and flanker Phil Hinchley, who was credited with the touchdown from a catch and drive lineout. Full-back Murray Westren – who had taken over the kicking duties from the injured David Mankee – landed the first conversion but saw his second attempt slide across the face of the posts leaving his side a single point down.
Newton had marginally the better of the latter stages, but Camborne were also a threat. However, the visitors closed the game out to ensure their third maximum point victory on the bounce.
Earlier scrum half Luke Kenny had followed up behind his forwards for the opening try after only five minutes. Avery-Wright converted before Camborne levelled with a try from centre Jake Chapman that Mankee converted.
A second Kenny try, following good work at the fringes of a ruck by Avery-Wright, put Newton 12-7 ahead, but tries from home hooker Tommy Lee Southwell plus one for Keiran Westlake alongside a second Mankee conversion were enough to put the Duchy side 19-12 up at the turn.
Defeat for both Camborne and Newbury Blues leaves only three sides unbeaten; the “All Whites” lead the table on points difference from Dings Crusaders and Exmouth who have both also banked 15 point maximums.
Saturday, Newton welcome Cleve to Rackerhayes, k.o. 2.30pm. The Somerset-based visitors are in fourth place having won two from three including last Saturday’s 20-11 home victory over Brixham.

The Spartans, who had a blank weekend as Tiverton failed to raise a team, take their unbeaten Devon One record to 6th placed Crediton tomorrow. Newton Colts, who are looking for their first win after two setbacks, welcome Plymouth Albion Oaks for a match that will take place on the Homers Lane pitch.
