New Cross ended a three-game losing streak by inflicting a 41-17 defeat on visiting Torrington.

Luke Williams helped himself to a try hat-trick and there were two more tries for player-coach Nick Halse as New Cross piled-up the points.

Halse said it was one of those games where ‘everything seemed to click’ the longer it went on.

‘Torrington’s pack kept them in the game for a long time with some driving maul scores and strong running, but we eventually pulled away and scored some good tries,’ said Halse.

‘With plenty of ball from the line-out and scrum, our backline got to execute some well-timed handling moves and break down their defence over and over.’

Williams (3), Halse (2), Matt Pitcher and Harry Lock scored the New Cross tries. Rhys Mullin kicked three conversions.

New Cross are at home to Okehampton this Saturday in their final Devon Two game.
