BIDEFORD Nomads won 15-5 at Topsham to register their third successive win in the Devon Merit Table.

Nomads started with an early Shaun Woodhead penalty, followed soon after by a fine try by full-back Lee Faux running in from halfway.

Nomads' captain Mike Powe led by example and hooker Mike Stark and back row Jason Turner were constantly in the thick of the action.

Nomads' pack had the edge with Marco Flores, Chris Walter and Matt Cornish leading the way.

On the hour Nomads broke from defence with Stuart Arnett-Clarke winning a long chase to touch down a fine clearance kick. Woodhead added the points with a superb conversion.

Topsham pulled a try back with 10 minutes to go.
