Hornets Under-16s gave a perfect performance when they defeated Bridgwater 70 points to nil.

HORNETS Under-16s took the short trip to Bridgwater and in perfect conditions for end of season rugby, they put in a performance to be proud of.

The front row of Hancock, Cocking and Constable won a good clean scrum and No 8 Richardson shipped to Holyday, who timed his pass to put Turner in for his first try. Eades gathered the restart and after good work by Hancock and Taylor, Turner crossed again, converted by Humphris.

After a scrum was won against the head by Cocking, Richardson offloaded to Wall, who took on the defence and released Turner for his hat-trick.

Another scrum and backs move saw Wall barge through to score, converted by Humphris. Good runs by Dover and Parkman allowed the back row to thrive.

You may also want to watch:

Francis moved the ball for Taylor, swiftly moved along the line by the backs and Coe was over, converted by Cocking. Constable linked up with Richardson and Ben Eades arrived to crash over to finish the first-half scoring.

Wall made an early break and Hancock took it on again before Foroughi sprinted to the corner. They next try came when Taylor spotted Hancock, who had started his run from the halfway and smashed into the full-back in top gear.

Although injured in the collision, he was able to offload to Richardson to finish the try, converted by Cocking.

Again from the restart, Eades gathered and fed Constable who scored and he converted his own try with a drop kick. There were further tries for Dolcezza, a fourth for Turner and one from Chamberlain as Hornets won 70-0.

This group will now link up with the Under-17s to form the Colts team for next season as the Hornets’ conveyor belt of players continues at a steady pace.

The Under-13s hosted old rivals Keynsham on a hard Hutton Moor pitch. Hornets had not played for nearly a month and their rustiness showed in the first-half as Keynsham ran in eight tries.

Joe Rutter had his best game this year for Hornets with some strong tackles against some fairly big players.

The second half showed a huge improvement for Hornets with better control of the ball from the scrums and better tackling. Keynsham scored first, but a good move from guest player Trevor resulted in a try in the corner, with Lawrence Pilgrim unluckily clipping the post to miss the conversion.

Following a scrum at the Hornets 22 line, Pilgrim broke away and ran nearly all the way to touch down, but was tackled just short. A further slick move from Hornets, again from their own half, allowed Trevor to score again.

Sol Midgley slotted over the conversion and Hornets were winning the second half. However, the tidal wave of Keynsham pressure eventually saw a converted try, so they just won the second half.

Hornets are proud to have five lads from the Under-14s - Ayden Chenoweth, Quentin Querl, Charlie Fairhurst, Nathan Langdon and Luke Collins - chosen to play for Somerset against Dorset & Wiltshire at the Recreation Ground in Bath.

WESTON Under-8s enjoyed and excellent tour weekend with a first night barbecue, an afternoon on the beach and a bedtime themed Saturday night, before playing sides from Barnstaple and Bude on Sunday.

Weston played a total of six games across the morning, winning four, drawing one and losing only one across a morning of great rugby which included, for the first time, Amellia Groom and George Weall, who stepped in ably to support their brothers and it also saw the return of Greg Cunnington from a brief sabbatical.

For Weston Reds, Amellia showed the boys how to do it with a display of great pace and determination, scoring her first try for the club following some great support. Her brother Jack was not to be outdone and showed his customary tenacity.

Jayden Hood again led the try count with eight across the day, utilising his dazzling pace to great effect, much like Leon Beard, who has also added a fantastic range of passing to his game.

Roo Beckett made great contributions with the ball, as well as chipping in more than his fair share of tags, while the returning Cunnington reminded everyone of the great pace he has as he chipped in with six tries across the day.

Meanwhile, Weston Blues were also giving a good account of themselves against strong opposition. Debutant George Weall led the line and scored a couple of good tries, benefiting from some great support play.

JJ Weall meanwhile, was spinning and stepping his way to the line in his customary way and Jack Hobbs again showed his trademark illusive running as he scored from positions which seemed impossible.

Thomas Withers played his part with a huge grin on his face and worked hard throughout, while Finley Simpson benefited from the expansive passing of others to run in impressive scores.

Chief providers of those passes was Ollie Dadds, who continues to be involved centrally both in defence as he leads the line and in attack with some great passing.
