Bideford came out on top 35-24 against visiting Camborne in a lively South West One encounter between two sides with no pressure on them.

Camborne may argue they deserved a bit more out of the game, but Bideford would see it differently.

Bideford played for an hour with 14 men after Will Copp was sent off for an offence at a ruck.

The half-time score was 8-3 to Bideford – Ollie Wickett scoring a try and kicking a penalty for the hosts.

The bulk of the scoring was reserved for a breakneck second half.

Camborne got ahead briefly when Mankee converted an Alex Ducker interception try.

Tries by Simon Bright and Jono Mock put Bideford back in front - a Wickett conversion helped – but Camborne stayed in touch when David Mankee converted Kevin Mankee’s try.

Mock’s second try was answered by one from Steve Kenwood as the ding-dong carried on.

A Wickett penalty opened up a six-point lead and Mark Scofield’s try at the end killed Camborne once and for all.
