Honiton made the long trip down to Wadebridge Camels to play their first league game of the season in the Cornish county. The Ton kicked off in poor conditions and frankly the weather got progressively wetter as the afternoon went on which played it's part in an error strung game.
On a very windy afternoon on a smaller than usual pitch, the game started off slowly with only two Lovesy penalties separating the two teams in the first 13 minutes to give Honiton a 6-0 lead, writes Jeremy Rice.
On a breezy bright day and a good home crowd Honiton had their second home league game of the season hosting Tiverton. There was a sponsor lunch for In Zan's Finance Tackle company and Giles Bangerger so the scene was set for the encounter.
Chard made a losing start to the new Tribute Western Counties West campaign, but there was plenty in the 20-16 home defeat at the hands of Wellington to give the Chard faithful plenty of optimism about the long season ahead, writes Glyn Hughes.
