Falmouth RFC found their form on Saturday to come out of the match with Wiveliscombe with a 46-12 win and move to ninth in the table, writes Charles Currie.

Wiveliscombe got a try in early, but a strongly attacking and defending Falmouth did not take long to answer back with Ollie Evans scoring in the 14th minute.

After maintaining consistent pressure on the Somerset side, Nick Carne got in his first try of the match after chasing the ball for the best part of half the pitch.

Soon after, Alex Vincent was the man to take the ball over the try line after strong phases played by the Eagles. Falmouth closed out the first half with Ollie Evans and Nick Carne scoring their second tries, leaving Wivers trailing 29-5.

The Eagles came out flying in the second half. Evans completed the hat-trick in the 44th minute. Tom Spiller was a man on a mission, powering though Wiveliscombe defence numerous times.

The final ten minutes hosted slightly sloppy play from both extremely tired teams. This didn’t stop Rory Pugh scoring his first try of the match. Nick Carne made an incredible interception to get his third try of the game, followed up by a conversion from Kieran Rodda.

In the last few minutes of the game, the Wiveliscombe fly half broke through to get the side’s final try along with a conversion.

Post-match, captain, Tom Spiller said: “We’ve got our first foot on the ladder now and it’s just about building on that.

“There were a lot of things that didn’t go right for us today as well. But to still score over 40 points at home while leaving two or three chances out there shows what we are capable of.”

Ahead of next week’s game against fifth in the League Kingsbridge at the Rec, head coach, Graham Whitmore said: “We need to focus our attention to what we need to work on and come back even better and stronger."
