The Colts had to dig very deep today to beat a very good Yeovil side who looked at one stage as if they were going to run away with the tie. The game was played as all games should be with determination, great skills and high intensity from both sides. Taunton scored early which sparked the Yeovil side into life as they replied with 2 tries of their own, one of which was converted, then began to capitalise on the Taunton errors. Taunton managed to keep them out until the turn around.
In the second half Taunton began to move the ball wide and troubled the Yeovil backs, as the pressure mounted Taunton ran in 2 tries, again one being converted. With the score at 17-12 both sides threw the wave after wave of attacks at each other with only last gasp tackles keeping the try lines safe. As the final whistle blew, both sides were out on their feet having given their all. A fabulous advert for rugby from 2 top sides.
