The A side also successful, but not quite so W19 L9 D2, and the Extra A W10 L7 but points wise 157-162. Noticeably, there were no out of the County visitors over the Easter - lesson learned? In the Devon 7s the Club again qualified for the area finals beating Paignton 11-9 to come up against the eventual winners St Lukes College in the next who very much had the "legs" of the Club particularly when obtaining possession from a kick and it was left to Peter Blackburn to discover it was advisable to be "accidentally" offside from the centre kick, scrummaging thus not giving the College the same advantage - however the result was not affected.
A report of an A XV fixture v HMS Defiance (3-6) reports Burston opened the scoring for the ship with an opportunist try. Several seasons later Leading Seaman - well on and off depending on his service disciplinary record - Lofty Burston became a tower of strength as a superbly loyal forward for the Club although subsequent mention of opportunist tries is lacking.
