Clevedon claimed their second victory of the season with a 38-7 success over strugglin Coney Hill.

Both sides tried to play rugby on a dark, blustery day, but loose passes and dropped balls prevented any early score.

The Seasiders struck first, though, when a good passage of play was finished off by Chester Crewe and William Squirrel burrowed his way over from close range before half time to make it 10-0.

Coney Hill applied pressure after the restart, but were kept at bay by stoic defence from Biggins, Russell and Ryder-Smith.

And Clevedon went further ahead as Arnold Vailles, Charleston Tucker, Malcolm Parslow and Theodore Thie all touched down, with Joey Tucker adding conversions in his first game for over a year.

Head coach Nick Hill said: "It was great to get a win and do it playing some good rugby. But it is very much one game at a time."

Clevedon visit Gordano for a derby on Saturday.
