Bideford Colts have had mixed results in their New Year campaign, competing for the Devon plate.
A narrow loss to league leaders Newton Abbott resulted in a much needed bonus point and gave the team some encouragement.
Away to Plymouth Argaum, they put in a strong performance and were rewarded with their highest score this season, winning 57-10.
This set up an optimistic air for the next away game against Plymstock Albion Oaks.
But with three front row players and one back row player unavailable, young Biddyâ€™s task was a tough one and despite starting well their pack were thoroughly turned over by a heavy Oaks outfit.
This weekend comes an opportunity for Biddy to get back on form with a home match against Cullompton.
