Exeter Chiefs 28 v Exmouth U11s 0 in an entertaining match.
Sunday saw a squad of 15 turn out to take on the Exeter Chiefs U11s on their home ground at Sandy park.
It was an exciting match and our boys held their own against the superior size and weight of the Exeter team.
The Chiefs went home the victors but nothing was given. The young cockles worked solidly in defence, holding the home team to only 2 tries each half. Quick work from the forwards and some nifty kicking that gained useful ground, put the Cockles in position to score on several nail-biting occasions. But with the sheer weight in defence from the Home team, meant that illusive first try the Exmouth lads strived for, remained just out of reach.
Whilst the score may not have gone the way we would have liked it was a great match to watch and the boys can be proud of their performance. Finn Musgrove was effective in his position as scrum half and took home the Man of the Match trophy for his efforts, whilst Ieuan Brockway’s tenacious play, which included some crunching tackles, was rewarded with the Outstanding Effort Award.
