Argaum come back for hard fought opening day victory

The Chiefs experience and physicality was just enough to overcome a youthful and exuberant Barnstaple Athletic

Plymouth Argaum made a great start on their return to Level 8 rugby with a hard-fought victory over a very good Barnstaple side. The visitors led 17-10 at half time after crossing for 3 tries in response to two from Dan Smith. Barum increased their lead with a fourth try after the interval before The Chiefs rallied and got their driving game into gear up the slope. Two scores (including a penalty try) had brought the scores level, before winger Preston Wilkins was released to touch down for the winning score.
