Development XV retain 100 per cent record
A young Hornets Development XV kept their 100 per cent record with victory over Yatton.
Hornets Development XV 67 pts
Yatton 2nd XV 10 pts
A SIDE containing 10 of last year’s Colts took to the field and put in a solid performance against Yatton.
The visitors started the livlier and their early pressure was rewarded with a penalty to take the lead, but Hornets hit back with a try by John Xanh. Soon after, good work by Andrew Wheller set up Stu Vinnicombe for a try, converted by Connor Davidson.

Hornets started the second half as they ended the first with Wheller again touching down in the corner. Man of the match Bradley scored a deserved try and three minutes later, impressive No 8 Ramaz Rukhadze put Wheller away for his fourth try of the afternoon, Davidson again adding the extras.

The forwards decided to get in on the act as Rukhadze picked up off the base off the scrum and ran in from 40 metres, with Davidson adding the conversion to make the score 55-3.
Credit to Yatton, who continued to plug away and were rewarded with a consolation try under the posts. Rukhadze scored his second try and George Greatbanks finished off a workmanlike performance to make the final score 67-10, meaning the youngsters retain top spot in the league along with their 100 per cent record.
