Great start to U7s’ rugby career
Sidmouth v Cullompton
Sidmouth mini's felt the pressure on Sunday when the visiting team from Cullompton delivered some well disciplined phases of play at Sidford, writes Rob Bolton.
The first of two games saw Sidmouth execute some well supported attacking play, finding space in the opposition’s defensive line which, coupled with some competent ball handling and running passes at speed, was the secret to the five tries scored. Even though defensive pressure was strong when Cullompton were in possession, Sidmouth found difficulty in making the tags, allowing the first game to finish with a 7-5 win to the visitors.
The second game saw the new recruits build on their recent training sessions, giving them the opportunity to put into practice the skills developed.
Again there was some very impressive attacking play, running the ball forward and looking for support and quick off loads when the opposition made tags.

Cullompton were able to take advantage of the gaps in Sids defensive to score a number of runaway tries. The second game finished with the score standing at 5-1 to Cullompton.
