Honiton Under-9s Rhinos travelled to Sidford to take on Sidmouth and returned with two wins and a draw from their morning of action.

The travelling squad comprised; Bobby Perrett, Jake Downs, Charlie Beer, Jack Vernon, Reuben Lidster, Harry Branch, Eiren Enticott, Jack Hodder, Elli Sparks, Logan Symons and Sam Olliff.

In the first game Rhinos made a powerful start and did not look back with the midweek training clearly paying off. The defence was solid throughout and the game ultimately won 11-4 with Jake Downs leading the scoring with five tries. The others came from Eiren Enticott (2), Sam Olliff, Charlie Beer, Reuben Lidster and Jack Vernon.

Game two resulted in a win by the odd try in 17 with the Rhinos scorers; Vernon (3), Downs (2), Enticott, Bobby Perrett, Lidster and Harry Branch.

Game three saw some tired legs on show with the 12-player Rhinos squad up against the 20 plus of the Sidmouth squad and so the opposition were able to introduce plenty of fresh legs! However, again the Rhinos played with distinction, sharing 12 tries with Sidmouth. In this game the tries came from Perrett (2), Downs (2), Branch and Enticott.
