Sidmouth Under-15s bounced back from their defeat the week before to Honiton, by bagging an emphatic win at Bridport.
On a heavy surface after overnight rain, Sidmouth won then toss and opted to play with the benefit of the elements and playing down the slope.
They began well and, from a good kick-off, won turnover ball and Jack Marchant picked up and moved the ball out to the supporting Tom Bree who crossed and Cole Monaghan slotted the conversion.
From the resulting restart, the returning Jack Owers, starting at fly-half, found a gap in the home defence and sprinted through it before off-loading to Jack Jenkins who ran to the line for the second Sidmouth try.
The remainder of the first half saw Sidmouth dominate and further tries followed.
You may also want to watch:
Cole Monaghan ran a good 70 yards to score his try before a powerful run from Charlie Corr led to him crossing and Marchant added his name to the try scorers to see Sidmouth into the break with a 40-0 lead.
The second half saw the hosts enjoy the benefit of the elements.

They kicked long but the ball found the safe hands of Ollie Jones and he gave it to second row Ollie Parry-Layshon who found himself in space.
He beat the first defender, then backed himself, running a full 60 yards to score an excellent individual try.
Sidmouth, although finding it much harder work in the second period dug in, defended exceptionally well and, as a result of their efforts, the home team were unable to breach their lines for a try of their own!
At the other end of the pitch, Sidmouth worked equally hard and further tries were scored by Alberto, Jack Jenkins, Cole and, last but not least, from winger Nikita who got on the end of a neat chip from Archie Rowe to score in the corner at the end of the game.
