Withycombe Vs Sidmouth U10s

The last game of 2015 saw Sidmouth Under 10s travel over to Hulham road in Exmouth to play Withycombe RFC.

Both had equal numbers and decided to play 4 quarters with rotation of substitutes happening everything couple of minutes.

First quarter saw a slow start by Sidmouth making a few mistakes which gave away easy opportunities. Some improved play saw Sidmouth cross the line a couple of times. Sidmouth were ripping the ball with ease and dominating in the ruck.

The second quarter saw a vast change to the Sidmouth line-up but no change to the outcome. Players breaking through tackles to score at least 3 unanswered tries. Some great open play by the Sidmouth team after some enthusiastic encouragement from the coaching staff.

Third quarter and more of the same, the Sidmouth team increasing in confidence and most players able to get overcome whitewash. Another Sidmouth player able to run through the opposition and at times with several players hanging off him as he went over the try line.

Last quarter and all the players desperate to get back on the field and finish on a high. Again some strong running and great defence saw Withycombe unable to score. Not to dishearten the opposition a relaxation of the rules allowed Withycombe to get a consolation try but that was the only breach of the Sidmouth defence.

Sidmouth finished on a fantastic high scoring over 12 tries against 1. Great performance by all the squad and a well deserved break for Christmas.

Well done to George Tanner, Will Pulman, Timmy Brookes, Lottie Reid, Noah Finlay, Jed Wade, Finn Cotton, Jake Paget, Jack Fanning, Ned Coles, Thomas Fletcher, Charlie Brock, Oliver Marsh  & Luca Manning.
