Baptism of fire for under 11's

Sidmouth U11s 10 Vs Collumpton U11s 33

 Sidmouth’s first competitive match with the increased 12 man aside formula started well with the green army gaining greater control of all aspects of forward play. However, a breakaway try for the visitors soon sounded a word of caution.

The strategy of trying players in different positions is conceptually thought to give greater overall experience but hinders consistency somewhat and Sidmouth paid the price for rotating players. Collumpton had pace to burn on the outside and demonstrated this advantage to devastating affect several more times. The rucking and set pieces continued splendidly for Sidmouth and now the coaches must switch their attention to the three quarter’s continuity and more importantly – defence. Sidmouth’s try scorers were Louie Stamp and Will Kennaugh, with Finlay Johnson not only captaining the team but leading by example. Well done to all the U11s on their valiant efforts – onward next week to Tiverton.
