TOPSHAM'S RFU Junior Vase game against Plymstock Albion Oaks won't be an excuse to rest players.
Cup games are sometimes seen as a distraction from the main business of trying to get promoted.
Topsham have started well in Devon One this term – and that's why they are taking the trip to Plymstock seriously.
They didn't have a game last Saturday – and have a big one coming up.
"We go straight from Plymstock to playing South Molton, which is first against second in Devon One," said Topsham's director of rugby Colin Milkins. "A good performance against Plymstock will set us up nicely for South Molton."
Topsham hope to have former Bath and Exeter Chiefs scrum-half Ricky Pellew available for the next couple of Saturdays.
Pellew assisted Topsham from time to time last season, when his current job with Chiefs as a skills coach permitted, and trained with the club last week.
Wessex have a day off they could have done without this Saturday in Devon One as there are no fixtures at all.
A club XV are playing North Tawton, which will give some players not involved in the win at St Columba & Torpoint last Saturday a bit of game time.
Wessex won 15-13 at St Columba, which may not seem much to sing about at first sight.
However, two games into the current league season, Wessex already have more points in the bag than they earned all last term.
And coach Dean Jeffery would have liked to keep the momentum going, not that he is complaining too loudly.
"Compared to last season things are definitely looking up, but we are all aware one swallow doesn't make a summer," said Jeffery.
"The crucial thing is you can see improvements in the way we play from week to week.
"After the draw against Totnes we looked at crucial areas like discipline and worked on them.
"At St Columba we talked about the oppositions weaknesses at half-time and how we were going to exploit them in the second half, which we were able to do.
"We also learned valuable things about some of our players, such as what a good full-back Ben Dance could be when we can spare him from playing at scrum-half.
"Matt Burden did a really good job for us at prop and second row – and our back row of Mather, Meldon and Davies looked really impressive."
It was close-run from start to finish with Columba narrowly leading 10-8 at the break.
Wessex tries were scored by Dan Mather and Dan Morris with Joe Riddler converting one and a penalty.
