The first Saturday of March was a blank day for the Sidmouth RFC teams.

The Chiefs are set to host Crediton in a Tribute Western Counties (West) game at the Blackmore this coming Saturday (March 10).

Supporters attending the game can then stick around to enjoy the showing, in the clubhouse, of the Si Nations match between France and England being shown on the big screen in the clubhouse.

There’s also action for the Sidmouth Quins on Saturday and they too meet Crediton opposition, though, in their case, the match is being played at Crediton.

Sidmouth Colts have a big game too, they play the first of their Devon Colts Plate semi-final round robin matches, when they meet Torquay Athletic Colts at Sidford with a 2pm kick-off.
