Experience triumphs over fitness and speed!

Lacking nothing in fitness and speed, the Benbows kept Argaum fully extended at Dartmouth, but superior weight and experience won the game for the visitors by a goal two tries and a penalty goal to nil. Gibbs, in his first game, worked hard at scrum-half, and thrustful play by the Plymouth backs resulted in a try from Kingwell, to which Baker added a penalty goal. Good defensive work by Metters and Rhodes kept Dartmouth at bay, and further tries were added by Pooley and Kingwell. Baker converting one.
