There was a very rare occasion on Sunday of all Plymouth Argaum competitive match when Plymouth Argaum 'A' took on Plymouth Argaum 'B' in the Cornwall Clubs Colts Sevens. In what was a beautiful day at Launceston Argaum fielded two sides against clubs from all over Cornwall and Devon.

Argaum Colts came through in a tense finale to give them their first win over Kingsbridge at this age-group. The home side dominated the opening 20 minutes and after an early Jake Turfrey penalty, prop Dan Smith barged over for a close range try after a clean line-out catch and drive.
This was the 3rd meeting between these two young colts sides with the spoils of the two previous encounters having been shared. Argaum started slowly and were guilty of allowing the ball to bounce on the hard surface which led directly to two home tries, both of which were converted.
