At the end of the 2013/4 season, league officials decreed that Bridgwater had used an unregistered player in a match against Wadebridge Camels in March. Despite a club appeal – the player was a paid up club member but was on the inactive player list - we were deducted five match points. As a deduction [...]
Match report by Tony Pomeroy This was a scintillating game of rugby – a ten try fiesta – with Bridgwater taking the spoils and leap-frogging Camborne into third place in the league. This was Bridgwater’s sixth consecutive league victory and the ninth in total in the first half of the season. Bridgwater made only one [...]

Albion’s 3rd XV welcomed the league leaders Wyvern who had lost just one match to date. The 3rds fielded a much changed line up with several players appearing out of position. On a glorious afternoon Wyvern soon showed why they are top of the table. Well led by the veteran Richards upfront and marshalled by [...]
There were several changes again in the Albion ranks with Rae coming in for his first appearance of the season and the Day brothers appearing together for the first time. Albion were in scintillating form in their last performance against Minehead two weeks ago and hoped to carry on in that way. In a scrappy [...]
