Honiton RFC 1st XV go into Christmas top of the league on points difference, having not played on Saturday.

Due to Totnes’ late call off, as they couldn’t raise a team, Honiton RFC got five points which pushed them top.

The weather put paid to the second team fixture. January 7 see of the season restart with a tough trip to Veor in Cornwall.

●With no senior games on, Honiton's under-15s travelled to South Molton for their last match before their Christmas break, wining 57-7. . The hosts, by agreement, were fielding a mixed age team of 15 and 16-year-olds and Honiton looked forward to a challenging match on a heavy pitch

Honiton looked strong from the off and good recycling turned possession into points. With a strong first half, the game was won by half time. Ben Kidson opened the scoring with a long run off the wing. Mat Broom got the second with Wes Keywood, Cody Northcott and Richie Webber all crossing in quick succession. Daryl Young got his first try of the season, House ran back from the restart to score again and Keywood and Webber both got their second. House, in charge of conversions, kicked six out of nine and Honiton went into the break 57-0 up!

The second half was a different matter and Honiton's defence was well tested and held out until Molton got the consolation try with the final play of the match.

Man of the Match went to Connor Long.
