Torrington will be glad of a Saturday afternoon off in Devon One after going down 36-14 to visiting Old Plymothians.

Torrie ran out of fit replacements before the end of the game and with their bench wiped out and no front-row cover left had to ask for uncontested scrums.

The Plymouth side had established an early lead that Torrie, despite their best efforts, couldn't come back from.

Mike Wigley and Harvey Hill scored push-over tries for Torrington. Skipper Tom Gooch kicked a penalty and a conversion.

Ilfracombe gave Buckfastleigh a scare before conceding a 24-22 defeat at Silver Street.
