Dings Crusaders 43 – Newton Abbot 22

The streak comes to an end

When the two unbeaten sides go head to head something invariably has to give and last Saturday’s encounter saw Dings Crusaders come out well on top against the “All Whites” who journeyed back from Bristol empty handed.
The home side did the most significant damage in both the opening and closing fifteen minute spells. Dings scored two tries in the space of three minutes through wingers Marlon Dorsett and Harry Tovey to move into a twelve nil lead with Steven Plummer having added a conversion.
Another twelve points late on, after Newton had got back to 31-22; put the hosts over the horizon. These scores came from Marcus Brooker and Luke Arscott - who was up against former Exeter Chiefs playing colleague Matt Jess. Plummer added a further conversion.
In the hour of play between these opening and closing spells Newton kept themselves in the game but would have done better if the forwards had been more competitive in the loose. Dings won a lot of turnover ball which took the momentum out of the “All Whites” attacking options.
A Rob Avery-Wright penalty reduced the deficit to 12-3 before Dings banked a further try through Alistair Duddell that Plummer improved.
Newton responded with a try from No 8 Jarryd Harris to trail 19-8 at the break, however scrum half Plummer cancelled out this score early in the second half.
A second Harris try from the back of a rolling maul plus an Avery-Wright conversion kept Newton in touch.
Harris’s opposite number Jake Holcombe responded with a try, Plummer’s conversion restored the sixteen point advantage, but back came Newton again; the threes moved the ball out to winger Max Snowdon who crossed by the corner flag, Avery Wright converted from the touchline.
The Devon based side then went searching for their bonus point try which could have also yielded a losing bonus point. However, it wasn’t to be as Dings closed the game out with another dozen points.
On this form, Dings look to be one of the favourites for the single promotion spot; last year they finished second before losing to Wimbledon in the play-off for a place in National 2 South.
The “All Whites”, now in second, will be also be hoping to be there or thereabouts and will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday against third placed Exmouth who have also won four out of five since demotion. This Devon derby, the first of six scheduled for the season, gets underway at 2.30pm.
