Both clubs had sufficient numbers to be able to field two teams that played each other.

Whilst the sun was present – and in full shine – an icy wind chilled a number of fingers and hands as the teams put on another entertaining display for the parents on the touchline.

Impressive running and passing from both teams led to a high number of tries. Fast feet and clever running lines were features of the action. There was also an abundance of tireless and brave tagging that managed to stop many a run ending in a score.

After the matches had been completed, Honiton head coach Tom Hattan said: “I’m pleased to see that our passing and running continues to improve, resulting better teamwork, and some great tag rugby.”

All in all, it proved to be a great morning and both sets of players were richly deserving of a post match hot dog and a chance to thaw out in the clubhouse!

Nick Cunningham, of the Honiton U8s, said: “Thanks go to everyone that works so hard at the club to make it all happen.”
