Bideford Quins Incredible Fightback Not Quite Enough

A spirited fight back in the second half was not quite enough to save Bideford Quins from losing 41-38 to Topsham in the Devon Merit Table. 

Quins, whose team consisted of a couple veterans and Ollie Gibbons playing his first game of rugby, started well but let their defence slip and were 36-7 down at half time. It was almost all Bideford in the second half resulting in a nail-biting end. 

Try scorers were James Draper, Billy Teape (2), Pete Hockridge (2) and Fred Brimfield with Mark Austin adding four conversions.
