South West One rugby - Bideford

Bideford dropped down to seventh in the South West One table after losing 19-10 at Chard.

Bideford had plenty to do at the interval after turning round 12-0 down – and promptly set about doing it!

Full-back Chris Snell cut the leeway with a penalty then converted a try by replacement Pete Bowles to leave two points in it.

Bowles gathered a box kick at pace and galloped over under the posts from halfway. Snell kicked the conversion taking the score to 12-10.

Chard made the game safe with their own try under the posts.

Bideford are back at King George V this Saturday to face lowly Clevedon.
