Weston Under-9s enjoyed four closely-contested matches at Bridgwater.
Weston Under-9s travelled to Bridgwater to play the hosts and touring team Tamworth, but were unfortunate to come away without a win in some closely contested matches.
The Weston Warthogs lost out in both their games 1-2, while the Wolves drew both games (2-2 and 3-3).
For the Warthogs, Daisy Compton was stalwart in defence alongside Fin Simpson. Joe Jenkinson carried the ball and Harry Gadsden was fleet of foot in attack. Leon Beard was a dynamo in both attack and defence and Tom Adderley similarly showed determination in defence as well as going forward.
Roo Beckett gave great support, while Harry Wills, gave his all, bursting the defensive line on various occasions only to be pulled down just short.

Meanwhile, the Wolves similarly played brilliantly across the side, with resolute defence and attacking flair. Ollie Dadds was robust in defence, ably supported by Lewis Brown.
JJ Weall was a bundle of energy, while Jack Groom carried the ball forward to great effect. Sam Pinchbeck harried the attackers and made important breaks for the line, as did Jack Hobbs.

Jayden Hood showed again how much he has improved with a great defensive display, but the biggest groan of the day came when Amelia Groom burst through the Tamworth defence, but was brought down inches from the line. The final word must go to Liam Holbrook who managed to score all of the sides tries.
