It was a credit to both sides that so much rugby was played on the heavy pitch. The home side came very close to securing their first win of the season but the greater experience of Topsham told in the end. The visitors opened the scoring in the first half with a try which was duly converted but despite playing down the slope could not get past some stout Argaum defence so the half-time score remained at 7-0. In the second period Argaum gained more possesion and looked dangerous when spreading the ball wide. Several attacks were held up near the line by Topsham but eventually swift handling saw Rhys Dymock-Williams crossing for his debut try. Rhys Johnson's conversion levelled the scores but despite a couple of good chances to take the lead it was Topsham's counter-attacking which saw them score two late tries to give the final scoreline a slightly lop-sided feel.
