Honiton Rhinos Under-10s emerged triumphant in their home game against Withycombe.

The contest was played in some extremely muddy conditions, which made simply keeping their feet quite difficult – let alone receive and pass a slippery ball!

However, the Rhinos, to a player, worked hard from first whistle to last as underfoot the players had to work very hard, but with great team play they secured a 6-2 victory.

Eiran Enitcott bagged himself a hat-trick with Jake Downs, Matthew Matravers and Ben Matthews also crossing the whitewash for the Rhinos.
