Honiton Rhinos Under-11s were in top form as they ran in nine tries on their visit to Withycombe.

Rhinos were quickly into their stride, scoring from the first kick of the contest with Jude Prettejohn marking his first start with the opening try.

That led to a first half of dominance for the Rhinos and they trooped off at the break leading 4-1.

Their dominance continued throughout the second half, which was also hit by the rain! Jake Downs scored a hat-trick of tries and Jack Vernon crossed the whitewash twice.

The other Rhino tries, in a 9-1 success, were scored by Sam Olliff, Elli Sparks and George Pemberton.
