This game presented an opportunity for the All Whites to get back to winning ways – and they did it in good style.

After the heroic defensive display the previous week against Hartpury College, coach Phil Burford had questioned why his team did not make more of the possession they did have. This week they rectified that by putting much more width on their play, seeking out gaps in the Yatton defence and ultimately punishing their opponents.

Looking more like play off candidates than they did a few weeks ago, the All Whites enjoyed a good day at the office.

The unsung hero picked out by Burford was Matt Templeman, the second rower who often does his bit in the tight, but this week he was far more pronounced around the park.

James Head also enjoyed a return to action. He has been hampered by injury of late so will have been glad to get a good solid game in before tomorrow's encounter with near rivals Paignton.

The All Whites built momentum slowly, but were 13-3 ahead at the break courtesy of a try by winger Alex Moore, converted by Mike Saxton. The latter then added two penalties, while Yatton could only muster a penalty by standoff Sam Osborne.

The second half was a different story with the hosts going up a gear.

The next try came from prop Kyle Mason, converted by Saxton, before Moore got his second of the afternoon.

New boys Brett Stroud and number eight Gareth Evans ran in a further three tries between them, with Saxton converting two.

Yatton – who had openside flanker Bill Osborne in the bin – now face a tough second half of the season at the wrong end of the table.

Newton Abbot travel to neighbours Paignton tomorrow for a game that has added spice.

Paignton have hit a rich vein of form and are now only two points behind the All Whites.

Paignton turned Newton over at Rackerhayes at the beginning of the season, so tomorrow's game will be highly contested. Supporters are urged to venture across to Queens Park in order to add their vocal support.
