Barnstaple finished their National League Three South West season with a heavy defeat at Redingensians.

Luke Berry scored Barum’s only points with an early penalty in a 42-3 thrashing.

George Owen got a hat-trick of tries as Redingensians, who finished the regular season unbeaten at home, secured the runners-up spot behind champions Lydney and a place in the promotion play-off.

Aaron Hopkins and Olly Johnson got two tries each, with Andy Bryans kicking a penalty and conversion and James Brooks one conversion.

Barnstaple will almost certainly finish in eighth place. They are currently seventh but Old Redcliffians, who helped out Redingensians by beating third-placed Bracknell today, are only a point behind with three games in hand.

The result summed up Barum’s away record this season. Despite being impressive at home, they have won only three times on the road and conceded more points on their travels than any team except bottom-of-the-table Chippenham.
