Mixed results for young Biddy

Joseph Bulmer

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 Biddy’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.
