Sidmouth Under-10s staged their final home game of the year with Honiton providing the opposition on a day of blustery weather.
Sidmouth won the toss of a coin and had the first points scored within seconds of the first whistle!
The first quarter saw the home side the dominant force, scoring almost at will.
The ball was turned over either through ripping or superior rucking. Sidmouth refreshed some of the squad, but ultimately this didn’t change the dominance that Sidmouth held over the Honiton team.
After a half-time break and another change in the line-up, Sidmouth maintained their lead with running in more unanswered tries. Jack Fanning in particular was breaking through the Honiton defence line with some very determined running. The last two quarters saw some brutal play by both teams as they both kept their commitment going to the dying minutes.
Some relaxation of the rules helped Honiton get on the score sheet and give Sidmouth some added defensive practice.
On the morning there was some excellent play by Charlie Brock, Will Pullman, Finn Cotton, George Tanner, Ned Coles, Timmy Brookes, Lottie Reid, Noah Finlay, Luca Manning, Charlie Farringdon-Smith, Thomas Fletcher and Jack Fanning, saw Sidmouth end on top and remain undefeated.
Sidmouth Under-10s coach Jon Manning said: “It was another very promising performance and the players are developing their rugby well. Thanks must got to
a spirited Honiton side that kept their heads up, gave their all throughout and kept on looking to play positive rugby.”
