LAUNCESTON’S unbeaten away record in Regional One South West was ended yesterday as second-placed Devonport Services eventually ran out 28-18 winners at The Rectory.

A try from Ben Bryant and Dan Pearce’s penalty made it 8-8 at the break, and with seven minutes to go there was still nothing to separate the two teams with Pearce’s penalty and converted try making it 18-18.

But Matt Neyle’s penalty coupled with Freddie Davies’ score in injury-time, gave the Plymouth club the five points and in the process, ensured the Cornishmen had nothing to show for their efforts.
