Tribute Devon 2, as the league is known for sponsorship reasons, is an English level ten rugby union league for clubs based in Devon; with one exception (St Columba and Torpoint RFC is based in Torpoint, Cornwall but have always played in Plymouth Combination competitions). The champions and runners-up are promoted to Tribute Devon 1, there is no relegation as this is the lowest division in club rugby union within Devon. In season 2014–15 North Tawton came first and are promoted to Tribute Devon 1 along with the runners-up Tamar Saracens. Both teams won thirteen of their fourteen matches; losing just the one match away to each other.[1]
