Joce is understood to have collapsed moments before taking his place in a scrum.

He was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital by the Devon Air Ambulance.

Barnstaple's first team won 67-12 in their Devon Senior Cup quarter-final at Torquay Athletic, with forward Mike Sumner scoring five tries.
