Honiton Tigers U10s were given an early year boos when Exeter Chiefs winger Matt Jess took a coaching session at Northcote Lane.

Jess, a surviving member of Exeter Chiefs’ promotion to the top-flight of English rugby, focused on helping the Tigers improve skills such as tackling and passing.

Honiton coach Jon Hannay said: “When we heard there was an opportunity for Matt to come and take a training session for us the lads were very keen for this to happen.

“Matt was excellent with the lads and everyone enjoyed the whole experience and we are now looking to see what they have taken on board as we continue what has been a good season so far.”

Jess is almost back to full fitness after four months out on the sidelines with a foot injury.

Of his time with the Tigers, Jess said: “I had a great afternoon coaching the boys. They are a great bunch who were willing to learn and take on new things.”
