Exmouth 7, Honiton Musketeers 49

Honiton Under-12s were emphatic winners after a powerful all-round display. The early exchanges were even with Jacob Wright’s early try matched by one from the hosts.

With the Honiton defence and in particular Nicholas, providing a solid foundation, further tries duly followed with Wright crossing the hosts line twice more before the break.

In the second half Honiton stepped into an impressive higher gear led by the forwards who won plenty of good ball.

This allowed the backs to break on many occasions with centre Matthews grabbing a brace and wing Levy finishing a fine move whilst Moran also got on the score sheet.

All tries were converted to round off a very pleasing performance with so many players having fine game, the coaches awarded Man of the Match award to the whole team.
