Falmouth Eagles continued their impressive start to the season in recording a seventh straight win and a bonus point against Plymouth Argaum. Graham Whitmore was nervous prior to the game that his team might struggle for motivation as this match came on the back of local derbies against Penryn and Pirates Amateurs, which had both been high octane encounters.
Whitmore needn't have worried as Falmouth strung together their finest 40 minutes of the season in an outstanding first half, which saw the Eagles score four tries, conceding nothing, securing the bonus point and racking up a 29 point lead.

The tie was effectively over and Falmouth
Needing to reassert dominance Falmouth brought on their replacements and the fresh legs brought back some impetus, Ackner scoring his second, under the posts with a smooth move of the back of a scrum, Irons converting to extend the lead to 28 points.
Whitmore reflected after the game, that winning was becoming a habit, the first half had seen some of the best rugby Falmouth had played all season but he was equally pleased with the way the team had refocused on their defence in the second period.
Next week the Eagles face a serious challenge to their unbeaten record with a tricky visit to Plymstock Albion Oaks.
