Sidmouth V Barnstaple U16s

Sidmouth 17  Barnstaple 41

SRFC u16 2015

Sidmouth lost a bruising battle against a sizeable Barnstaple opposition in the first round of the cup at Blackmore. Barnstaple played to their strengths from the off with a strong forward performance and well drilled moves that gave them a series of penetrating tries. Barnstaple also shut down very well and frustrated any open play from the normally expansive Sidmouth.

When they did get the chances, Sidmouth capitalised and gained ground with tries from Ethan Mead (2) and a well worked kick from George Harris that and the nippy Toby Degruchy carried over well. Sidmouth will need to learn from this encounter when they next meet Barnstaple in the league.
