Sidmouth U9s 40 vs Witheycombe 15

No nerves for the first game of the season as the boys and girls went 5 tries up within as many minutes. For a first game it was great to see the line held and some relentless tackling by Charlie Brock which meant Witheycombe were turning over ball before getting anywhere near the line. 

So much was Sidmouth's dominance that we relaxed the rules and tackle count to try and help Witheycombe put a score on the board. 

A second game with all the new Sidmouth recruits saw some fantastic work, Annabelle Bird scoring her first try and another awesome tackling display by Ben Elsom. For some of these players it was their first game of rugby and they didn't hold back with the tackles.  

Great start to the season and next week off to the inaugural U9 festival at Witheycombe.
