Lameys Sponsored Rugby Day 2013

Posted by Mike Manwaring on Wednesday, 24 April 2013 in General

We would like to thank all who attended our sponsored rugby match on 13 April 2013. Despite the downpour, the Newton Abbot “All Whites” completed a clean sweep of league wins over all the other Devon opposition in the division, beating Brixham 18-3.  Hours of steady rain, and the playing of a junior match beforehand, left the pitch wet and muddy and although the captains were willing to play, the referee was unhappy to start. There was therefore always a chance that the weather could bring a halt the game.


The match, which was played until the hour mark, saw Newton outscore Brixham three tries to nil and facing the strong breeze in the second half, it was unlikely the Fishermen would have recovered.  Nevertheless it wasn’t until the following day that it was confirmed the result would stand.

Despite the conditions, all attending on behalf of Lameys had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and we would like to thank Newton Abbot RFC for their hospitality.

The full match report is available on the All Whites website:
