Bideford made it three wins on the bounce as they motored into mid- table with a 38-13 win over visiting North Petherton.

An early try by Dean Folland had Bideford on the front foot.

Ollie Wickett converted and added a penalty for 10-0.

Harry Roberts kicked a penalty in reply for Pethy, but two from Wickett made a 16-3 lead at the switch.

Chris Snell's cheeky dash-n-dummy led to a try under the posts that Wickett converted.

Matt Dennis then made the running for Luke Hoyle to score in the corner.

Gavin Hancock chipped, chased and crashed over as Petherton briefly joined in.

Tries from Matt Slee and George Snell put Bideford over the horizon and a Jack Kohler try for Petherton was largely irrelevant.

Bideford have no game this Saturday.
