Hornets Development XV ran in nine tries in a re-arranged match at Crewkerne.

Crewkerne 12 pts

Hornets Development 59 pts

Hornets Development team travelled to Crewkerne for a re-arranged fixture and came away with a comprehensive victory.

The visitors only took 16 players with them and got off to a good start when Dec Dorrington was first to score with only two minutes on the clock. From the resulting kick-off, Hornets were able to launch another attack, this time it was good handling by the forwards resulting in prop Matthew Plumley stepping a defender to dive in under the posts, converted by Dorrington.

It was not long after this that Hornets were again on the score sheet, this time Stuart Vinnicombe was able to get on the end of an excellent team attack to make the score 0-19 after only 15 minutes.

Hornets seemed to take their foot off the gas and allowed Crewkerne their best spell in the match. Following sustained pressure on the Hornets line, the home side were able to break through scoring under the posts.

This seemed to focus the away side, who were able to score further tries through Bailey Jackson and another for Dorrington.

The second half started with Crewkerne scoring first from a quick tap penalty. That was the last time the home side were able to mount any sort of attack and the rest of the half belonged to Hornets.

Further tries came from Matt Vaughan, Paul Cullum, Craig Withers and Nick Summers.
