This week’s youth rugby round-up
BARNSTAPLE U12s beat Bideford 12-0 in an enjoyable derby date.
Ethan Downs crossed in the first half for a 5-0 lead. Connor Swan crossed in the second half with Lui Golden-Kemp adding the conversion.
Hard-tackling Finn McAuley was named man of the match by the coaches.
The U15s had a mountain to climb at Kingsbridge after going 15-0 down and couldn’t quite make it.
The situation improved following five substitutions before half time and tries from Ed May, Charlie South, Josh Samat and a Squire conversion left it 17-all at the switch.
Kingsbridge scored twice at the start of the second half to go 29-17 up. Although Joel Anderson got a try back for Barum, there was no way of avoiding a 29-22 loss.
