Try-mendous! Sidmouth’s Under-15 girls’ team came home from the Minehead Festival as age-group champions.

More than 300 girls playing in three age groups – U13s, U15s and U18s – took part in the festival.

Sidmouth didn’t get off to a great start as they were beaten 25-5 by Newquay in the first of six games. They didn’t lose again.

Minehead were held 15-15 and Wells beaten 25-15. This game was by far the most competitive as Wells had a big, solid pack. Sidmouth doubled up in defence and used their speedy backs to take the game.

There was another 15-all draw, this time with Somerton, followed by a 35-25 win over North Dorset.
