Stuart shines for Exmouth Under-10s
PUBLISHED: 09:33 01 December 2011
Exmouth Under-10s had great fun as they took on Farnham and Tiverton in their latest outings.
In their first game they found visiting Farnham a very accomplished side and, despite the young Cockles defending admirably, they were unable to repel the visitors who displayed excellent technique with both off-loading and tackling.
Owen Tidball and Thomas Preece were prominent with their tackling but Exmouth continued to battle and were rewarded in the second half when Ben Dawson scored their one try as they slipped to a 40-5 defeat.
Against Tiverton it was the Mid Devon side who led with two unanswered scores at the break.
Shortly after the re-start the Cockles were back in the game with tries from Harry Neath Rogers and Harry Sprague.
Back came a useful Tiverton side with three more tries but the Cockles continued to compete and scored a third try of their own late on from Thomas Preece.
Ben Stuart was named Man of the Match whilst Owen Tidball picked up the honours for Tackler of the Match.
