Sidmouth would have struggled in these conditions in past years but recent arrivals have added strength to their pack. Sidmouth started with the slope and soon pinned Honiton into their own 22. The pack pounded away with many reset scrums due to knock ons, but Honiton could not get away from their line as the Sidmouth half backs kicked to the corners. Eventually, Sidmouth crossed for three scores before half time. The slope and conditions were probably worth one or two tries so the game was far from over. Fresh legs were brought on to help with the hard work ahead, but the Sidmouth pack more than held their own. Great tackling by the backs snubbed out any threats that Honiton could throw at them. Then a break out try sealed the matchs fate in Sidmouths favour and this was followed by two further tries, one from a cross field kick and the other a flowing backs and forwards move. The team are beginning to develop, with all the players stepping up to the mark and trusting each other to make the tackle or to be in support when required. Squad: Theo Headon, Lucan Horsnell, Dan Swain, David Chan, Jack Bevans, Tom Lowe, Oliver Aplin, Connor Woodhouse, George Welch, Rory Dyer, Aaron Bagwell, Sam Cavin, Tom Counsell, Jack Searle, Harry Lovell, Charlie Norris, Jack Scrivens, Ben Cook, Billy Collins and Finley Stone.
