Clifton headed back up the M5 with the points after gaining their third successive victory, 18-17, over Taunton Titans in National Two South.

But it was a close-run thing, with the visitors winning a lacklustre derby game with a late try in the corner by Gareth Mason.

Clifton opened the scoring with a penalty from Ben Roberts after 15 minutes but Taunton hit back before the interval to go ahead with a try by Gary Kingdom which was converted by Brett Turner.

Turner stretched Taunton’s lead with another penalty shortly after the interval but Charlie Bullimore went over for a five-pointer for Clifton with Roberts converting and then kicking a penalty to put his side 13-10 up.

Kingdom scored his second try of the game and player coach Tony Yapp added two more points with a conversion to put Titans back in the driving seat but Mason came to Clifton’s rescue with only their second try of the match.
