Sidmouth Chiefs remain top of the Tribute Western Counties West table after the matches on the first Saturday of March.

The Chiefs, who entertained Chard at the Blackmore, won the match 44-17 with Luke Wells-Burr crossing for a hat-trick of tries. In all, Chiefs scored six tries and there was another big points return from Rory O’Brien who scored one of the tries and also kicked four conversions and two penalties for a personal 19 point haul.

With regard to the results for their rivals for the top honour – there are arguably four teams still in the title race – Crediton won 27-10 at Saltash, St Austell defeated Bideford 17-15 and Wellington won 15-8 at Tiverton.

With just nine points separating the top four the closing weeks of the season are bound to carry heightened drama.

As for the next round of fixtures, on Saturday (March 9), Sidmouth travel to Crediton for what looks to be a real ‘crunch fixture’.

Also on Saturday, St Austell visit Chard and Wellington entertain Truro.
