Exmouth 19, Exeter Chiefs 26

Exmouth Under-12s produced a fine collective effort before being edged out by the visiting side, writes Andrew Beatty.

The eventual difference between the sides was a couple of outstanding solo runs from the Chiefs that gave them the victory.

The Cockles’ youngsters worked incredibly hard and that enabled them top retain possession for long periods throughout the contest.

Carrying on from the previous week the team were quickly into their stride and looked the brighter of the sides’. The rucking by the forwards, Jed Reid, Harvey Beatty, Charlie Mears, Cormac O’Mahony, Rhys Daniels, Tom Bray and Eddie Hooper.

With the forwards also bossing the scrums, winning the majority of them, it meant that even when the Chiefs did gain the ball, they did not keep it for long!

The tackling from the Cockles, led Aaron Brigham-Jones, Nick Eveleigh, Sam Gooding and Owain Brinkworth, was intense and Jack Greenway, in particular, led the line when taking the play to the visitors.

The first try came from Exmouth when Eveleigh put in a long kick and, thanks to the pressure put on the opposition from Greenaway, a penalty was awarded to Exmouth. Hooper took it and drove over the line. Hooper then helped with the second try when he went on a fine run and Brigham-Jones finished it off stretching over the try line. Then, the only poor spell of the game came for Exmouth, arrived and during this time they seemed to lose the tackling spirit which I turn allowed one or two of the Chiefs players to go on powerful surges from which they bagged three tires.

Exmouth rallied with outside support from Greg Marks, Jamie Goulder, Wade Pitman, Martin Joubert. Kyle Webb picked up and ran some distance, the result of which was a penalty which Hooper again took and powered Man of the match the previous game had gone to Eddie Hooper for his work rate and hat-trick of tries. This match the individual honour went to Jack Greenaway for his committed work rate putting constant pressure on the opposition.
