Pre-season rugby: Barnstaple 48-0 Bideford

Barnstaple look in good shape ahead of their first competitive rugby of the new season after beating lower-league local rivals Bideford 48-0 in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.

The sides regularly meet before their league campaigns kick off, and this year it was undeniably Barnstaple who got the better of their opponents at Pottington Road.

Barnastaple get their National Three South West season underway at Redingensians on September 6, while Bideford begin at Thornbury on the same date in Tribute South West One West.
