BARNSTAPLE lost 17-7 at Newton Abbot in a match that finished with uncontested scrums.

The home side were leading the National Three south west game 11-7 around the hour mark when they were left without a full complement of front-row forwards.

Kevin Squire, the Barnstaple director of rugby, said: "Both sides played well and worked very hard – it was nip and tuck all game.

"If the game had stayed with contested scrums, we could have won it. That was the area where we had an advantage."

Barnstaple's try was scored by Toby Williamson, his fifth of the season, converted by Will Topps.

Bideford's match at Wellington in Tribute Western Counties (west) was postponed.

The football matches involving Bideford, Barnstaple Town, Ilfracombe Town were called off.
