Strengthened by the inclusion of several first team players, the Extra XV handled extremely well at Beacon Down to win comfortably by a goal and six tries to nil. The game was more evenly divided than the score would suggest, but in their opening game the re-formed Civil Service team failed to function as a unit. At the base of the winners' scrum, Gibbs sent out a smart service. Kingwell and P. Burns scored two tries apiece for Argaum, and others were added by Hendy. Linehan, and Reed. The last-named also made a conversion.
