Archant

Withycombe U16s completed their campaign in the Fisherman’s Cup league stage when they travelled to Paignton and enjoyed a big win thanks to another superb all-round show.

Withy had already qualified for the final in which they will meet Teignmouth on the first weekend of May.

However, rather than travel to South Devon and ‘go through the motions’ ahead of the final, Withy were clearly set on finishing their league campaign with a flourish and in a stunning display of running rugby with a mixture of ferocious attacking and solid defence, they served up a real treat and powered to half a century of points within 30 minutes!

Captain Luke Davies kicked off and, within two minutes, the home side were penalised for coming in from the side. A quick tap and go saw the ball speed out to the right where Max Dix crossed the line to score the first of what would be a try double. Seven more tries were to follow in quick succession with two from Harry Neath-Rogers, and one each for Thomas Croal, Ben Dawson, Josh Saunders and Aaron Lee. Jason Farrant kicked all tries to convert, maximising the scores and helping bring the game to a quick end for a team that are on top form and demonstrated why they fully deserve their place in the final.

Again it was a complete team performance with every player drawing in defenders, gaining ground by running penetrating lines to create space for the scorers to finish the moves.

With the team in great such shape and working so well there’s little doubt that the team are in the best shape possible ahead of the final against Teignmouth.
