Lydney. ...........27

LYDNEY ran out worthy winners in Devon after a game played in gale force wind on a heavy pitch.

Lydney looked to dominate the opening encounters but, for the opening first 15 minutes, both sides made numerous errors just trying to get used to the tricky conditions.

The Severnsiders started to manage the game better and their forward pack were making good ground with some strong driving play on numerous occasions.

It was from a line-out and good phases of play that the first try of the game arrived as Alex Nelmes was on hand to outpace the Cullompton defence for the opening score after 25 minutes.

A further good forward drive saw Matty Williams quickly spin the ball out into open play and the very impressive second row Callum Thompson popped up out wide to crash over.
