Even with the cheering of celebrity Kirstie Allsopp on the sidelines Cullumpton couldn't pull back and the  match finished with Sidmouth winning at 45:30. 
 
A quick break and immediately into game two.
Cullompton starting with the ball but it was lost forward when the player went to ground. Sidmouth were quick to react and Oliver Marsh had a fantastic run the length of the pitch to score the first try. A lot of mistakes by both teams saw Sidmouth come out in favour with a second try by Oliver Marsh and then two sprint finishes by Ned Coles and Toby Sandford. Sidmouth finished the first half up at 20:5. The second half saw a low try count but what amazing footwork. This was the half of some superb side steps by Luca Arver who collected two tries. Sidmouth finishing the winners at 30:10.
Cullompton were great competition and pushed Sidmouth all the way. Well done to all the boys and the support from the sidelines.
