BRIXHAM moved to the top of the Devon Senior Cup league table after beating Exmouth 27-21 away to record their fourth county derby win of the season.

The Fisherman had been 14-3 down at the Imperial Ground with Jack Fahy and Shane Cooper scoring tries for Exmouth.

But Brixham came back well and sealed the win with a late try from Billy Pinkus – his second of the day. Tom McLean and Devon Jewsbury had also touched down for Brixham.

In the Devon Intermediate Cup, Kingsbridge have moved 10 points clear after they continued their fine try-scoring form to beat Tiverton 53-7 at home.

In the Devon Intermediate Shield, Torquay had to dig deep to keep up their good derby form this season going with a 24-17 home win over Tavistock on Saturday. Jake Bury, George Belmore, Tom Drake and Johnny Brown scored tries for Torquay, with Ethan Lamerton, Andrew Schuttkacker and Martin Budden crossing for Tavistock.

In the Devon Junior Cup, OPMs booked their place in the semi-finals by beating their city rivals Plymouth Argaum 31-0 at King George V Playing Fields. Chris Hamer, Simon Bray, Toetu’u Vaka, Fred Smale and Paul Williams scored tries for OPMs, who will now meet Buckfastleigh in the last four in February.

In the Devon Junior Plate, Dartmouth reached the last four by overcoming DHSOB 72-26 at Stonehouse Creek. Sam Pearson scored a hat-trick for Dartmouth, who also had Karl Caunter (2), Luke Chase, Ryan Burrows, John Dingle and Josh Bruckner scoring. Lopeti Faha (2), Atu Kovula and Masiwera touched down for the Old Boys, with Shawn Mucunabitu kicking three conversions. Dartmouth will now host Plympton Victoria in the semi-finals.
