Exmouth RFC had no fewer than five of their players on duty for the Devon Under-18s when they took on Oxfordshire in the final county game of the season, a contest played at the home of Hornets RFC.

Cockles’ back rower Ethan Langson-Justice captained the side and also included were fly half Harry Ottaway, who was also the team vice captain, hooker Matt Seager, scrum half Sam Fulthorpe and winger Joel Ranft.

Cockles’ head coach, Jon Hill said: “It really does underline just how bright the future is for us as a club if we can field five of the Devon Under-18 side.”

Unfortunately, Devon lost 20-15, but there is certainly hope that some of the Cockles players will now progress through to the South West squad on the back of some impressive individual performances.

Hill added: “I would like to congratulate all five of the boys for the parts they have played this season with the county. We, as a club, are ‘super proud’ of them. All five have played for the club’s 2nd XV on occasions this season, and have not looked out of place in senior rugby.

“Harry [Ottaway], in particular, has impressed, and gained the Man of the Match award in a recent A XV meeting with a Royal Navy XV.”

There was more positive news for the Cockles with Fulthorpe, Ottaway and Langson-Justice having been added to the Devon Under-20s squad and join a number of other Cockles in the U20s set-up that met last Monday at Ivybridge.

Dan Armstrong and Ned Mills have both experienced plenty of 1st XV action this season and will be looking to the U20s set-up to further their representative honours.

Joe Harris, who has captained the Exmouth 2nd XV on occasions, is another who is part of the squad, along with hooker James Goss.

So, Exmouth, who can boast a ‘famous five’ in terms of the Devon Under-18s, may now also be able to lay claim to have a ‘secret seven’ in terms of the Devon Under-20s.
