Rugby: Exmouth and Withycombe in action ahead of new season

There is rugby action this Saturday (August 24) for both Exmouth RFC and Withycombe RFC.

Exmouth entertain Barnstaple (2.30pm) while Withycombe have stepped in to provide opposition for Sidmouth after the Chiefs were left disappointed by the late cry-off of scheduled opponents Wellington.

Exmouth, who launch a new South West Premier League season with a home game against Ivybridge on September 7, were 34-19 winners in their opening warm-up game; a visit to Bridgwater and Albion last Saturday.

Withycombe, relegated from the Tribute Cornwall and Devon League back in May, start life in Tribute Devon One on September 14 at Buckfastleigh Ramblers.

Withy then play their first home game seven days later when Old Technicians are the visitors to Raleigh Park.
