Brixham U12s 49, Honiton Musketeers 21

Honiton travelled to South Devon on a sunny morning and faced a stern test from Brixham.

Honiton, 28-0 down at half time and unable to get to grips with the Brixham scrum, knew they had to up their game if they wanted to get themselves on the score sheet.

This they did in a spirited fight back which saw them match their opponents with three converted tries each in the second half. Tries came from Bralsford, Wright and Olive.

The boys will learn from the game that if they match the physicality and aggression of their opponents then they can compete with the best sides in Devon.

Man of the Match was No 8 Luke Bralsford who gave 100 per cent from start to finish.
