There may have been nothing to play for but pride at the end of a long season but make no mistake this was a proper game of rugby where the result was always in the balance. The visitors from Gloucester 2 undoubtedly had indulged on the Friday night and Saturday morning but they were a very competent outfit (probably good Devon 1 equivalent) which made this a competitive encounter throughout.

Saltash II 0 Plymouth Argaum 71
Plymouth Argaum warmed up for next week's crucial league encounter with Buckfastleigh with this comprehensive victory over the Saltash second string. This was probably the best scoreline acheived by a senior Argaum side since an 80-odd point win against a depleted YMCA side in the late 1990s.
