Torrington took a bonus point from their 38-24 defeat at away to Old Technicians.

Techs forged into an early 14-0 lead, which left Torrie playing catch-up for the rest of the game.

Torrie travelled with just one replacement and an early injury left them nothing in reserve.

Tries were scored by skipper Tom Gooch (2), Ben Sawyer and Sam Britton, who also slotted two conversions.

Mid-table Torrington are at home to lowly Plymouth Argaum this Saturday.
