Honiton Under-11s were 55-25 home winners over Totnes.

The visitors had won the meeting between the sides the previous season, but the Titans were clearly determined to win this one! The action was end-to-end before the deadlock was broken by captain for the day Isaac Lindster.

Two further scores from Tom Elliot and one from James Goodman saw Titans into the half-time interval with a 20-15 lead.

After the break Titans took charge, displaying excellent handling, running and support play in attack while keeping it tight and disciplined in defence.

The second half scores were down to Oliver Gambie, vice captain Archie Hawkins, two more from Tom Elliot, Gracie Billing and an impressive double from debutant Rylee!

The Man of the Match award went to Jon Glover for not only his creative play carving the Totnes defence open, but also for his rock solid defensive performance.

Titans coach Simon Lancaster said: “A real team performance. Defence was immense, our captain lead by increasable example, Rylee has made an increasable impact on his debut and the entire squad are upping performances week in week out!”
