Round-up of junior rugby at Honiton

Honiton flew out of the blocks showing a dominant display of hard hitting aggressive Rugby with Will Tyres giving them a 21-0 lead at half time.

The second half saw Honiton playing up the slope on a deteriorating pitch and the early effort showed in their tiredness thus allowing Okehampton a glimmer of hope, helping themselves to three tries of their own.

It fell to Dion Warner to score what became the deciding try and defuse the spirited Okehampton comeback.

Man of the Match was given to Kyle Blackmore for outstanding work. It was great to have some reserves to draw upon for the first time this season.

Honiton entertained near neighbours Chard on Sunday morning and came out on top in a tight game.

Honiton started well and scored when No8 Oliver Upperdine picked the ball from the back of a ruck and crashed over from close range. Jake Mathews adding the extras.

This was soon followed by a Sam Olive try after some good recycling work from the forwards. Both teams’ defences dominated the game with some great tackling. Man of the Match went to prop Charles Finney who scrummaged well and made his presence felt at the rucks and mauls.

A revitalised Honiton team took to the pitch this weekend and from the off showed a renewed enthusiasm and energy. A tight first half saw them edged out a try behind, with great counterattacking play and hard work and spirit from the team.

That early energy seemed to evaporate in the second half and much of the promise dissipated, with a strong Okehampton side taking the upper hand. Definitely a step in the right direction and much good to come.

This was a physical game with lots of excellent technical rugby displayed by both teams.

Harry Shepherd opened Honiton’s account with Dominic Bernhardt converting. Chard took a lead before Jake Williams scored two more for Honiton, following fantastic running play, converted again by Bernhardt and Rhys Phillips.

The whole team were commended on their commitment shown by all players in supporting each other in rucking and tackling, notably Ben Deam, among many, with man of the match going to Bradley Levy for excellent individual effort.

Honiton’s second game of the season got off to a good start with the home side opening the scoring with a great try from the captain Kai Freestone.

An evenly-balanced first half had tries from Sam Steel, Kai Freestone, Tony Barber and Ben Spence keep the scoreboard ticking over.

The second half saw all the endeavour evaporate and a galvanised Chard side scored freely with no reply from the Honiton boys.
