Away to Brixham

W Brixham 5 : Withycombe 56

Withy carried on with their recent good form at an away trip over to Brixham. The boys took charge from the start and excellent team work and determined tackling soon had the hosts on their back feet. This pressure was soon rewarded with a succession of 5 well worked converted tries before half time to make it 35 nil to Withy at the break.

With the game firmly under control a re shuffling of certain positions at half time allowed players to try out in different areas. Brixham, to their credit, came back strongly and subjected Withycombe to a period of sustained defence that was well managed and absorbed. Withy continued to battle hard and finally began to dominate again as they had done in the first half. Second phase ball was soon passing well through the hands to send in the runners down both flanks. Brixham replied with a deserved consolation try after which some good recycled ball saw Rory Burston pop the ball out neatly to Will Cornish on the burst to close the scoring with the eight and final Withy try of the match.

Despite the score line this was an engaging display of rugby from both teams, Withycombe worked had for their own possession and then acted well as a unit to run in their 8 tries. Good individual displays throughout and unsung grafting at the break down to secure and win back ball. A good solid all round team effort.

Try Scorers : Scott Acheson (3), Will Cooper (2), Ben Wilkinson (2), Will Cornish (1)
Conversions : Will Cooper (8)

Man of the match: Matt Edworthy for good rucking and counter rucking to secure turn over all
