Withycombe Under-12s runners-up in Premiership Rugby Land Rovers Cup.
Withycombe Under-12s took part in the Premiership Rugby Land Rover Cup, organised by Exeter Chiefs .
Withy were drawn in pool C alongside Newqauy, Brixham, and Newton Abbott.
The games with Brixham and Newton Abbot were both won 10-0 and the match with Newquay ended 5-5.
That put the Withy youngsters into the last four where they defeated Sidmouth 10-5.
In the final the opposition were last year’s winners Plymstock Oaks who lifted the trophy again, beating Withy 10-0.
The semi-final and final saw the Withy team show tremendous character and there were some truly inspirational performances.
The rampaging forwards and elusive backs complimented each other extremely well.
