After a very early trip to Henley, 5 am for most, Exmouth U17's eventually went down to Cobham 31-15 in a very entertaining game. Against a full U17 squad that have been together for a number of years and play regularly together, the young U16&U17 Cockles aquitted themselves very well. The Cobham coach was gracious to say that his team new they had been in tough game and commended the Exmouth skill and determination to bounce back and challenge on the day.
Cobham have recently beat Sandal 39-21, to take the overall RFU National U17 Shield title.
Exmouth U17 will take heart that they won the South West Regional Shield title for 2013.
