NORTH Tawton claimed the 2017/18 Devon Two league title on Saturday.

Tawts narrowly beat OPM 8-5 away in a nail-biting promotion decider at King George V Playing Field.

OPM could have denied North Tawton an instant return to Devon One had they won.

But in the end a James Bowden penalty and a Conner Mathis try in the opening 13 minutes was enough for them in a tight game, where they defended brilliantly.

Buckfastleigh Ramblers claimed the runners-up spot after overcoming St Columba & Torpoint 62-5 away in their final league game.
