A COMBINED Burnham and Hornets Under-12s travelled to Clevedon to play Taunton in testing conditions.
This was the third game both sides had played together due to a lack of numbers for both clubs. Unfortunately, Taunton displayed a class well above Burnham/Hornets and ran in five tries in each half with four converted with the wind and all five missed against.
