REUNION FOR PLAYERS FROM THE 1970S

A reunion for those who played for the Club in the 1970s was held in the clubhouse on Saturday 27th July.

35 ex players revived memories of what was a particularly successful decade for the Rugby Club. In 1973 the Chiefs won the Havill Plate and in 1978 they reached the final of the Devon Senior Cup, losing to Exeter at the County Ground. They also reached the semi-finals in the following two seasons. In September 1979 the Chiefs won the Sunday Telegraph South West Team of the Month award for achieving eight wins against tough opponents such as Exmouth, Weston-super-Mare, Barnstaple and Bournemouth.

The decade also saw the start of the Junior section in 1971, the introduction of a 3rd Team in 1976, the Quins achieve a record 29 wins in two successive seasons and the Colts reach the final of the Devon Colts Cup.

A reunion for those who played in the 1980s is in the planning stage. Keep an eye on the website for details.
