EXMOUTH Quins travelled to Paignton to take on their 2nd XV in a league game. Given the hosts' precarious basement position with only two wins to their name, Quins could have been forgiven for travelling looking forward to a comfortable afternoon.
EXMOUTH Quins travelled to Paignton to take on their 2nd XV in a league game.Given the hosts' precarious basement position with only two wins to their name, Quins could have been forgiven for travelling looking forward to a comfortable afternoon.Straight from the kick off Quins prospered and, after some neat inter-play between backs and forwards, young Sam Bull crashed over after just four minutes.Sadly the early score seemd to have a detrimental effect on the remainder of the half which then took the form of a period of play littered with mistakes, poor decision making and very little structure, especially in the Quins' game.With skipper Tony Emmins laying the law down at half time the second half was a completely different game.Quins were far more organized, controlled and played with a structured game plan. However it took ten minutes for the Quins to break down the home defence when centre Barry Walton went over in the corner to finish off a well worked move.Now in total control, the Quins crossed the Paignton line almost at will.There was another try for Sam Bull and two for another youngster up from the Colts, Sean Fayter.Further tries came from Rich Cadywould, John Bird, Jack Westlake and five conversions for Rich Cadywould, making the final score fifty points to nil in Exmouth's favour. The two young Colts, Sam Bull and Sean Fayter, were made the men of the match with two solid performances at flanker and centre respectively.
