SidmouthUnder-12s were not at their best when they hosted Withycombe at Sidford.

The home players showed in the warm-up that they were probably not going to deliver what they are capable of and so it followed as they lost all three matches they played 6-0.

Coach John Lister said: “Unfortunately, it was obvious from the warm-up that the lads were missing their beds and just weren’t in the mood for rugby! As a result they were cut to ribbons by a very professional-looking Withycombe side who took full advantage of the dry conditions to display their handling skills. Our lads never managed to put any phases together with players constantly getting isolated and turned over due to lack of support play, and the defence kept falling off tackles, while Withycombe frequently swept the width of the pitch and back again with some beautiful displays of passing and support.”
