Special thanks go to Crediton for allowing the two teams to get some pitch action.
With many games cancelled again for the Exmouth rugby junior section, the U15’s were lucky to travel to Crediton for a hard fought and decidedly muddy encounter. Mike Loaring deputised for Tony Emmins and Andy Lendon who were still drowning their sorrows after a poor England rugby performance the day before. All the coaching team would have been delighted with the youngster’s competitive nature in atrocious conditions underfoot. Not so much a running game, more of a wallowing experience.
The eventual result was never in doubt and the Cockles ran out 45-0 winners. As the supporters could not see the try lines or any of the pitch lines to be fair, they had to assume the referee had a better view of the action.
