Two of the strongest teams in the Plymouth Combination met a gruelling game at the Brickfields, and Argaum, with the heavier and more vigorous pack, ran out winners by two goals to one penalty goal. Yendell, Young, and Close stood out in the visitors' fast-moving back division, but they were foiled by keen marking and the adverse conditions. The civilians' tries —one in each half resulted from concerted dribbles. Blackburn and Douglas touched down, and the latter goaled both tries. Wreford and scrum-half Daly worked hard for the winners.
