Sidmouth Under-10 Barmey Penguins shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw with Exeter Chiefs.

The team, captained by Matthew Thomas, also included Charlie Simic, Arlo Squires, Luca and Zac Arver, Toby Sanford, Harry Wood, Toby Mortimer and Jack Pugh.

Penguins began sluggishly and were quickly on the back foot with the Exeter chiefs pushing hard in the rucks winning the loose balls.

Gradually Penguins got into the contest and, with Toby Sanford working hard in the middle of the pitch tackling and running forward with the ball using Luca Arver as support, pressure finally told when Toby Sanford broke across the line to score the games first try.

Chiefs hit back and a combination of strong defensive play and some extremely powerful runs, scored twice themselves to take the lead.

Back came Penguins and it was no more than they deserved when Charlie Simic crossed the line for the equalising score.

The Penguins Man of the Match award went to Toby Sandford.
