FEB

Based upon the recent run of form and relative league positions, it’s possible that the eventual outcome of this game was inevitable.

Basement team Yatton’s cause was not helped by absences and the ability to field recognised first team players in key positions.

However, it was the home side, facing a low bright sun and playing up the slope, which applied pressure and had the visitors pinned within their 22 for the first five minutes.

But once Cullompton’s back division were given clean ball and a clear path their try in the corner was a foretaste of things to come. Five minutes later Yatton gave away a converted penalty in front of the posts.

When play recommenced, after a lengthy leg injury delay, the visitors backs were quickly in business with two more converted tries before half time to Yatton’s one penalty conversion.

Ten minutes into the second half Cullomptons stand-off slipped his would-be tacklers to add his try and conversion to his team’s first ever visit to Yatton.

However, it was now the fit looking visitors who were finding it tough going to run up the slight gradient on a sticky pitch.

As play continued into the last quarter, Yatton’s attacks nearly bore fruit only to miss out on a possible try by spilt ball as they were gaining the edge in the scrums.

However, with uncontested scrums during the final five minutes and sloppy defensive cover on the wing, Cullompton edged their tally over the 30 mark with another unconverted try.

This Saturday Yatton 1st XV have a rearranged match against Torquay, preceded by a VP lunch.

The 2nds are at home to Midsomer Norton.

On Sunday Yatton are hosting Devon U20 to breakfast.

At 12.30 there is a charity match, Asda against a Yatton side to raise money for Tommy’s Charity.

There will be a Rotary Quiz night on Friday 5th March.
