The game started slowly, with Torrie making some basic errors and allowing Tiverton to play a strong attacking game. After 15 minutes Tiverton crossed the line to go seven points ahead. Torrie showed glimpses of what they could achieve, but never allowed themselves the opportunity to shine, due to silly mistakes. At half time the score was still 7-0. Replacements following injuries gave Torrie some fresh legs, but they could not gain their composure and early in the second half the floodgates opened as Tivvy put on 38 points within 15 minutes to end the contest.
