Honiton Under-10s powered their way to a brace of emphatic victories against hosts Chard, writes Ben Lee.

After all the recent bad weather it was something for the youngsters to simply get out onto the pitch and play!

The tone for a dominant performance was set from the very first play of the match when Joe Evans threw an outrageous dummy and scorched in for an early score before grabbing a second late on.

Strong rucking from Honiton starved Chard of the ball before Charlie Sheppard, Joshua Giles and Harrison Lawson powered over and Honiton ran out 25-0 victors.

In the second match a more fluid Honiton began to move the ball around and some slick passing where the ball went through several pairs of hands saw Joe Evans score his sixth try of the game. He was joined on the score sheet once again by Charlie Sheppard and Joshua Giles with two while Osian Owen pounced late on.

All in all it was a great team performance with Honiton showing in patches what they are capable of, especially in the second game.

A special mention should go to Felix Robinson who returned to the side after a lengthy injury, but the Man of the Match award was shared between all the boys for their team work and great sportsmanship in helping out a depleted Chard team who suffered a string of injuries.
