The Coventry-based side are new to National Two South this season and are finding the leap hard.

They lost last time out to Old Redcliffians and are one off the bottom of the table.

Barum’s 22-3 win over Juddians was their first in four starts.

Former captain Chris Lowrie made his first appearance of the season in a red shirt on a trip home from his work duties in Cheltenham.

And it was Lowrie who scored Barum’s first try, dotting down a line-out catch-drive move. Jordan Petherbridge converted.

Juddians had to work hard to deal with Barum’s physicality and did well to keep their line intact.

Liam Prescott’s penalty got the Kent side on the board, but Barum’s reply was prompt. Petherbridge got one back for Barnstaple.

Tonbridge went down to 14 men just after the break and Barum were quick to capitalise.

The penalty was shunted into the corner, the drive set up and James Starkey took the try.

Tonbridge rarely threatened after that, but the hosts needed one more score to be safe.

It arrived on 71 minutes from another line-out drive with Petherbridge there once more to claim the score and kick the goal points.
