GALLERY: Plymouth rugby players help Devon girls’ teams beat Cornwall


PLYMOUTH rugby players helped Devon under-18 and under-15 girls’ teams to success over Cornwall on Sunday at Flowerpot Field in Exeter.

Devonport Services had 10 players feature in the under-18 squad that beat the Duchy 54-0 to retain the Tamar Cup.

With Services props Jess Thomas and Chloe Dawe providing a strong platform for Devon to build on, the home team ran in 10 tries.

Devonport winger Molly Hann scored two of them, with her back colleague Boo Berry adding two conversions.

Alice Mills-Hicks, Megan Musgrove, Daisy French, Faye Robinson, Megan Heath and Beth Nicholls also played their part.

Devon’s under-15s, whose squad includes Devonport Services Isobel Munton, Morwenna Dunstan and Phoebe Bishop, plus Plymstock Albion Oaks’ Alex Knapman and Tavistock’s Jemima Cameron, beat Cornwall 36-15.

Devon’s younger side, coached by Tavistock’s Hammy Kerswill, had been 31-0 up at the break, but Cornwall did come back after the interval, although the home team always looked in command with their speedy backs.

Tavistock’s Cameron was voted forward of the match.
