Well in to the unknown again, new season with improved opposition anticipated.
Topsham got off to a good start with dynamic running from every direction splitting the opposition at will with an early try steadying the nerves. More of the same and almost full control of the first half saw a turnaround lead of 0-12.
Second half, we seemed to take our foot off the pedal and due to this saw more attacking rugby from the opposition. Despite the Teignmouth wind in our favour getting forward seemed difficult although a good team try was achieved. Following a laps of concentration by Topsham in the last play Teignmouth were able to score a consolation try 5-19
Well done to all the boys today, a good team performance throughout. Particular mentions to;
Noah - direct running.
Finn - speed in attack and defence.
Joe W - universal player.
Oz - best blind side.
James Ma & Max - great team work.
James Mu - played well although out of position.
Tom B - conversion king.
Jack Co - learning the Topsham game quickly.
Tom Ir - good defensive play.
Ollie - great tackles.
One more thing, fines; no shirt & no tie - Noah 50p Finn 50p Pete G 50p.
Thanks all, PG
