Honiton Rugby Club have endured a really tough season at first-team level but still produced one of their best battling displays on the weekend before eventually going down to a 13-28 loss against Falmouth. 

The Honiton 2nds have enjoyed more success in the Devon Merit League but still needed a final play victory to overcome a determined Crediton side with an edgy 8-7 success. It was a very different match to the previous week, when the Ton Twos produced some scintillating rugby in defeating Exmouth 38-0. 

Like clubs across the region, and the country, there was a sombre start to the day at AllHallows, as Honiton joined with the rugby community in retiring their number 11 shirt and holding a minute’s applause in memory of Jack Jeffery, who tragically lost his life after sustaining an injury while scoring a try for Evesham Rugby Club on February 12. 

Rest in peace Jack.
