With just five games remaining this season, we’re back on the road for the penultimate time as we head to the English Riviera to play Torquay Athletic.

As we enter the closing stages of the season, the boys will look to finish strong; this all starts by going one better than last week where tries by Max Cooke & Luke Pattison looked to be enough to earn a win at home against Newquay but in the closing moments of the game, the visitors managed to get a score in the corner to level the scores at 15-15. Despite not getting the win, the performance on the field was improved again with Withy’s injury-marred team performing well against the odds.
With the two points earned from the draw, we remain in the mix of the 8/9/10 triangle in 10th place, just behind North Tawton who move up to 9th after their win last weekend and our hosts Torquay who are in 8th. With just two points separating the three teams, it’s all to play for!

Last weekend, our hosts made the journey to Topsham where they felt the full force of the Bonfire Field boys, heading back to South Devon on the wrong side of a 109-5 hiding. Torquay will be keen to bounce back from that defeat with a good performance this week so we’ll need to be on top form to counteract this.

When we last met in November, Withy were absolutely on top form when they ran away 36-0 winners at Raleigh Park. Points on the day came through tries from Chris Gibbons, Danny Sansom, Max Cooke and a brace from Man of the Match Mike Richards. Tom Cooke topped up the points with four conversions and a penalty.
A performance like that would be great and a win would see us leapfrog Torquay into either 8th or 9th... Game on!

Tomorrow’s game kicks off at 2:30pm from the Recreation Ground in Torquay (TQ2 6NX).
As ever, travelling support is hugely appreciated and we love to see you down there and cheer on the boys in green and black.
