U13 Representative rugby.

East Devon vs North, South & West Devon at Tavistock.

Sidmouth U13s provided a clutch of emerging high quality rugby players to represent East Devon in the sun drenched uplands of Tavistock RFC last Wednesday.

Harry Cockayne, Archie Bagwell, George Harris, Tom Woodruff and Ethan Mead all stretched their legs and contributed to well to in two East Devon teams. Jo Lowe, Christian Welsford & Tom Hubble were also selected but unavailable. The East Devon team is selected from Collumpton, Exeter Saracens & Chiefs, Exmouth, Topsham, Sidmouth Withycombe & Honiton. Regional rugby is designed to identify emerging talent and introduce young players to the next level of competition and provide a high level of coaching through Devon rugby and Exeter Chiefs ‘School of Rugby’.

East Devon continues to be a hotbed of junior rugby with the B team winning all three games and the A team emerging unbeaten with one win and two draws. The tournament was fiercely competitive and highly entertaining for the large crowd and all the Sidmouth players can be proud of their achievements.
