Hornets Colts made it through to the next round of the National Under-18s Cup after defeating Winscombe.

Hornets Colts are through to the next round of the National Under-18s cup following a lacklustre performance against a tough Winscombe side, running out 29-20 winners.

Playing at home, Hornets scored in the first five minutes through Tyler Haines, Josh Edwards adding the conversion. The visitors deservedly scored the next try, but Hornets bounced straight back, with Quentin Querl scoring under the posts, Rhys Clarke added the extras.

Once again Hornets’ sloppy play allowed Winscombe to score their second unconverted try before half time making the score 14-10.

The introduction of Nick Hitchins and Devon Frost at half time proved significant with Hitchins vocals around the park and Frost’s physical presence.

It was Frost who opened the scoring in the second half with an unconverted try, Winscombe responded following a great passage of play scoring close to the posts with the conversion successfully kicked.

From the restart, Querl was put in space to sprint in from a long way out for an unconverted try. With the score at 24-17, Winscombe were awarded a penalty which they successfully kicked to close the gap with five minutes to play.

Going into the final minute, Frost latched on to second phase crash ball and forced his way over the try line to secure the win at 29-20.

Hornets will now travel to the winners between Newbury and Worcester in the next round.
