Sidmouth RFC Under 9s started contact

Sidmouth RFC Under 9s started their contact rugby careers with resounding wins over visiting site Withycombe. On a glorious October morning, and with the fresh turf of the new Sidford Prettyjohn Field under their feet the Sidmouth squad moulded a fantastic first performance during the 2 games played.


Withycombe were strong in the attack throughout, but Sidmouths evolving discipline in the defensive lines and strong counter attacks were to much for the opposition to contain. Pre-season training seems to of had the desired effect, and with a strong sense of teamsmanship and for a first time outing in the realms of contact rugby there were more smiles than any of us could have wished for! Scores: Game 1 - Sid 7 Withy 4. Game 2 - Sid 8 Withy 1.
