In a much improved defensive performance, the home team ran out convincing winners against a larger Saracen outfit. Topsham's committed, organised defence underpinned our best performance of the season to-date.
Harlan, Will, Nate, Jo and Ben produced numerous turn overs at ruck time and the visitors were starved of possession from the outset. Tries from Wilf, Jo, Isaac and a hat trick from man of the match Archie kept the scoreboard ticking over at regular intervals. In attack, Topsham improved as the game progressed and some of the second half tries were an excellent demonstration of good support play and moving the ball into space.
Topsham have focused on their defence and rucking following some recent defeats and it was very satisfying for the entire team to maintain their commitment and concentration for the entire game. Defence is only as strong as it weakest link and the effort from the entire team was clear to all to see. Well done all round.
