Brixham 1st XV can take a important stride away from the bottom of the Tribute South West Premier Division when they take on Okehampon at Astley Park on Saturday.

The Fishermen (12th), who have lost five on the trot, are a point behind Okehampton (11th), with only Drybrook and Camborne below them.

All our local Western Counties West teams are away - Paignton travel to Chard (3rd), Newton Abbot to Falmouth and Teignmouth, fifth but still in touch with the top of the table, go to Bideford.

Having lost their unbeaten home record to Cornwall/Devon leaders Topsham before the latest break, Torquay Athletic (4th) travel to Exmouth to play Withycombe, where the hosts' pack is always competitive.

Devon One leaders New Cross (Kingsteignton) don't play on Saturday, but other local fixtures include: Dartmouth v Plymouth Argaum, Totnes v Tamar Saracens, Buckfastleigh Ramblers v Salcombe.
