PUBLISHED: 08:57 05 March 2015 | UPDATED: 08:57 05 March 2015

Withycombe Under-12s bounced back to winning ways to defeat Teignmouth 28-0.

The Teigns applied early pressure, but the home defence stood firm.

With possession shared there was some fine rugby, particularly from the break down and both sides used the flanks well.

Withy began to apply pressure and eventually told with a Jayden Gore try after good rucking on the Teign line just before half-time.

After the break Withy began to take control of proceedings and, with more edge tom their play began to open up the visitors.

Scrum half Finn Musgrove bagged an interception to cross and double the home lead before slick handling and passing ended with Ben Wilkinson running in from distance.

With the Teigns rattled, full-back Tom Humphrey completed the scoring with the fourth and final try.

Will Cooper once again showed good accuracy with the boot converting all four tries.

Ben Wilkinson was named the Withy Man of the Match for good running with ball in hand.
