Withycombe Under-10s made the short trip to the Mecca of South West clubs, Exeter Chiefs, last Sunday and played their best two games of rugby to date to earn a record 95-0 victory against their shell shocked hosts,

Two superb games of attacking rugby from Withy put their opponents under immense pressure from the start, never allowing the dangerous Chiefs any time on the ball. Joe Cole was his usual dynamic self, never missing a tackle and the sniping Harry Williams at the heart of most Withy attacks, relishing his role at scrum half. Quick ball was the key from resulting rucks and mauls, allowing James Griffin and Alfie Gillard to punch holes in the Chiefs defence.

The attacking play from the whole team had Chiefs on the back foot for the entire first match and this ended with a superb 45-0 victory.

Harry Williams, Paddy McGuinness and James Griffin all touched down, followed by a brace from Charlie Passmore and four tries from Joe Cole.

Game two saw a few changes made by Withies and they had to withstand a couple of attacks but soon carried on from the first match ending with an amazing 50-0 score line.

Harry Bennett scored three tries and Joe Cole grabbed another quick fire double, matched by two from Charlie Passmore , and single tries from Alfie Gillard, James Griffin and Paddy McGuinness. This was a super show of junior rugby and Withycombe were at their ruthless best. To be fair, we know the Chiefs well, and they are a good side. Today though, they were unlucky enough to meet a Withies side on top form.

Team. Ollie Willis, Joe Cole, Erin Assleman, Callum Toze, James Griffin, Charlie Passmore, Harry Bennett, Jacob Holt, Charlie Tyler, Harry Williams, Josh Chisling, Alfie Gillard and Paddy Mcguinness.
