FALMOUTH'S tremendous turnaround in fortunes continued with a bonus-point 29-19 victory at home to Cullompton on Saturday.

Tommy Job scored two tries with Joe Martin and Tony Whittle also going over to secure the extra point and Falmouth's fourth victory in five games – their best run of form since January-February 2019.

Falmouth stay ninth but are now eight points clear of the relegation zone.

The Eagles began well at their Recreation Ground home but saw three penalty chances go begging due to the wind, with one kick to goal being missed by Matt Horton.

But the home side did open the scoring midway through the first half when a strong run from Sam Thomas led to Martin driving over, with Horton adding the extras.

The in-form Eagles soon doubled their lead with a second converted try, this time from Job, who beat several defenders to dot down for his first try, with Horton again adding the extra two points.

Falmouth ended a fine first 40 minutes with a 17-point lead with Horton kicking a penalty in front of the posts.

But, aided by the strong wind behind them, the visitors came back after the break and got themselves on the board when they snapped up a loose ball in the Falmouth 22 and sped over the line for a converted try.

But Falmouth opened up a 15-point gap again seven minutes later with Horton teeing up Job to sprint through, with Horton unable to convert this time.

The missed conversion would not matter as the Eagles secured the bonus point and surely the match-winning try shortly after, with Whittle driving over before Horton converted to give the hosts a 22-point advantage.

The Devon side were not done yet, however, as they hauled themselves back into the game with a converted try under the posts after a multi-phase move.

They managed to reduce the deficit further with a try in the corner late on, but were unable to claw back a losing bonus as Falmouth held on for their latest victory.
