Sidmouth V Exmouth U10s

This Sunday we entertained local rivals Exmouth, with good numbers on both sides this saw a packed Sidford training ground.

Game 1 - Sidmouth started very well making some strong running and going over the try line within seconds. Some well contested rucking and ripping saw the ball more often come out on the Sidmouth side. Exmouth struggled with the power and speed of the hosts and Sidmouth were racking up more points, tries by Ned Coles, Finn Cotton and Oliver Marsh amongst them. In the second half Sidmouth continued in the same form with some fantastic offloading by Charlie Brock, Will Pullman and Thomas Fletcher saw the game end 40-0 with every player scoring at least one try.

Game 2 - Sidmouth picked up where they left off and were under no real pressure throughout the game. Again some improved offloading saw the hosts score several times. Charlie Brock was man of the match with some great rucking and also crossed the White wash. Altogether a much better performance with passing the ball along the line. Luca Manning managed to scoop a pass off the floor to go through and score. The host referee played a lot of advantage to the travelling Exmouth to try and make more of it but the hosts were too strong.

Exmouth proved a good contest at the breakdown with some strong rucking although spoilt sometimes by diving in off their feet. Sidmouth ultimately were too strong for the visitors.

Thanks to Exmouth and their supports for another good Sunday of rugby.
