Rugby Sevens: U18 Millfield Tournament

"The Millfield Sevens was the first run out of the season building to the school's first ever appearance at the National 7s at the end of the term," said Head of Rugby Mr Ross.

"A dry but very cold and windy day would make skill execution challenging for all teams throughout the matches. Exeter started scrappily in their first game against Millfield 3rds, but some good individual plays saw a well contested game go right to the very end.

"A quick debrief saw an improved performance against Glantaff School from Wales, but a few mistakes and a lot of pressure from the opposition made it difficult to get going in attack. After a win and a loss Exeter moved in to the second tier competition taking on local rivals Plymouth College.

"The lessons learnt earlier in the day saw the best defensive performance apply pressure and score tries off turnovers. Sam Plumer doing most of the damage with two very well taken tries. The last game saw us play the winner of the other play off, Downside School.

"Exeter started strongly scoring two quick tries but a few basic mistakes saw three tries for the opposition. The start of the second half started in the same vein with two errors gifting two tries, but a good end to the game saw Exeter claw back some tries, Sam Plumer again scoring two tries.

"Overall, it is the strongest start to the Sevens season over the last few years, with all 13 players in the squad getting on the pitch in each game and showing good development through the tournament."

1st XI v The King's School, Ottery - lost 2 – 4 (Charlie Pullen, Rob Stoyle)

"With the recent inclement weather, the 1st XI was fortunate to have a fixture on an astro surface this week," said Mr Ashman.

"We played pretty well in the first half and were unfortunate to be a goal down at the break to a long distance cross cum shot. Having said that, we lacked a bit of finesse in the final third and struggled with our final ball into the box.

"We continued to play on the front foot after the break, but went further behind to a dubious offside goal and a defensive lapse in concentration. The boys kept plugging away and we got our 'just deserts' with an exquisite effort from Charlie Pullen and a bullet header from our captain, Rob Stoyle.

"Ottery scored a fourth with another excellent strike just before the final whistle. Our overall performance showed plenty of promise; we just needed to be better in and around both boxes, fairly crucial areas on a football pitch!

"Max Haddican deserves a special mention for a particularly composed performance at right-back."
