Honiton Hawks Under-10s travelled to Newton Abbot on Sunday morning with a slightly depleted squad of 10 players.

Previous games between the two teams have proved to be highly competitive and these latest encounters were no different!

In the first game, Newton Abbot were more aggressive and had more urgency in competing at the breakdown, effecting numerous turnovers and this assisted greatly in their ultimate success of six tries to two.

In the second game, the Hawks came out fighting, upping their intensity and as a consequence they had better field position and more ball to utilise.

This resulted in a deserved win by three tries to one. The Hawks’ players deserve lots of credit for a spirited display in the second game when their heads could have gone down after the loss they suffered in the first meeting.

The Hawks players in action on the day were: Archie Trott, Byron Chalmers, Charlie Wheeler, Harry Evans, Harry Haysom, Liam Webber, Logan Symons, Miles Salter, Taylor Prettejohn and Will Parris.
