Withycombe Under-10s put visiting Cullompton to the sword with a brace of victories when the sides met in Exmouth on Sunday.

The Mid Devon side, not a bad outfit themselves, had no answer as Withy delivered a show full of power and quality.

The first game saw Withy charge to a 30-0 success. The impressive Harry Williams bagged a brace of tries, both down the blind side and there were also a pair of tries for both Joe Cole and Charlie Passmore.

The second game saw Cully score first with a well executed try. Ollie Hempstead the crossed to level things up, but an interception try put Cully 10-5 to the good at half-time.

After stern words from the coaches during the break the Withy youngsters stepped up a gear in the second half and chalked up no fewer than eight tries! Harry Bennett and Charlie Passmore both recorded hat-tricks and Alex Stortenbecker with a lung bursting run scored his second try of the season. Alfie Gillard completed the scoring as Withy secured an impressive 45-10 victory.

This was a fantastic team display against worthy opposition with the extra training sessions paying off in the rucking and mauling department.

With Oliver Willis and Samuel Skinner back soon, the balance is just right to help the newer players fit in.

Team: Ollie Hempstead, Aflie Gillard, Paddy McGuiness, Alex Stortenbecker, Erin Assleman, Aaron Humphreys, James Griffin, Joe Cole, Harry Williams, Harry Bennett, Charlie Passmore, Charlie Tyler, Oliver Neal and Callum Tose.
