North Devon rugby: South Molton still on for grand slam

PUBLISHED: 15:32 17 April 2018


South Molton’s trophy Grand Slam is still on after they routed Totnes 41-14 to secure their place in the Devon Junior Cup final.

Molts have already won the David Butt Memorial Trophy, the Devon One title, the South West Counties’ Junior Vase and the South West Divisional Vase, but they are still hoping to add the county cup and the National Junior Vase to their collection.

They did the damage in the second half against Totnes. They only led 15-5 at the break with two tries from George Whiting and a conversion and penalty from Callum Stone.

But they upped the pace after the interval and ran in further tries through Dan Smith, Harry Kingdon, Stone and Courtney Lucas. Stone converted three of the four tries in the second half.

Waiting in the final for Molton are Topsham, who knocked out OPM.

Ilfracombe, who were bidding for a place in the Junior Plate final, lost 34-4 at home to New Cross. It was only their third home defeat of the season.

Torrington were on the wrong end of a 58-0 drubbing at Honiton last time out.

Unless Torrie win at home to Lanner this Saturday, they will be doomed to relegation from the Cornwall & Devon Division a year after celebrating promotion into it.
