The Colts travelled to Bournemouth to play in the second round of the National U18 Cup on Sunday and put on a great performance of flowing rugby. Using their forward to provide a strong platform the Taunton back line cut lose early on to open up a big lead running in tries out wide through both wingers. With the scrum half sneaking a cheeky break past the big Bournemouth pack the Colts made the turn with a commanding lead.
Despite the wind in their faces in the second half Taunton continued to dominate around the park and the tries began to flow again, with several conversion being struck wonderfully the game as contest was over. Full credit to Bournemouth for battling to the final whistle and showing some good skills when they had the ball and playing right to the final whistle.
Taunton now move to a home fixture at the Commsplus Stadium on 4th March against Penzance U18.
It’s our final Kids First Champion for the season! David ‘Flats’ Flatman and two special guests surprise Ellingham & Ringwood RFC.
