Taunton Colts headed to local rivals Chard on Thursday evening to play their last League game of the season knowing a bonus win would see them finish as Somerset U18 League Champions.
After a nervous start and conceding a try within 3 minutes the boys started to settle down and play their normal powerful game, always looking to play expansive rugby the tries started to flow, However, a very strong Chard side matched them try for try throughout the game and refused to give up on what was becoming an epic game of rugby. Taunton continued to surge ahead only to be pegged back by further Chard scores until eventually Taunton scored their final try and held on to their 8 point lead having given everything during the game.
Credit to both sides for such a super final game of the season, Taunton now head to the Somerset Cup Final on the 23rd April as Somerset League Champions.
It’s our final Kids First Champion for the season! David ‘Flats’ Flatman and two special guests surprise Ellingham & Ringwood RFC.
