Wadebridge U15 19pts

Falmouth U15 35 pts

Falmouth U15 made the trip to Wadebridge, keen to avenge a two point defeat they suffered in finals day at the end of last season. Playing up a fair slope on the school field, Falmouth conceded an early try to the home side`s, speedy right winger. Wadebridge were the stronger for much of the next fifteen minutes, dominating possession and deservedly scored another converted try.

Falmouth started to gain more possession, keeping and recycling quick ball. Lewis Pirrie was catching the eye in both defence and attack and powered his way over to score; Jack Blakeston converting. This was to be quickly followed with Joe Carmichael going over after an excellent run up field from Billy Bateson. Falmouth was now level and putting the home side under a lot of pressure. With Bryn Owen having a fantastic game, he was to capitalise on some dithering in the Wadebridge back three, to make an incisive break, which eventually saw Billy going over. Jack again slotted the extras and was to enjoy an excellent afternoon with the boot.

Half time saw Falmouth turn around 21 – 14 ahead and now with the advantage of the slope. The Falmouth pack continued to work very hard providing plenty of quick ruck ball for Ned to swiftly distribute for the next quarter of an hour. Isaac Hayes and Lewis were getting through a tremendous amount of work and were helping Falmouth turn over a lot opposition ball. New recruit, Jack Watts and his second row partner Alex Gray were working well in the scrums, putting pressure on the home pack. Two further scores from Billy underlined Falmouth dominance. A special mention must be afforded to Dylan Heidstrom who has enjoyed a marked improvement in confidence and performance recently and also to another new recruit Will Williams who is learning the game quickly and having a real influence in the back row.

To the home side’s credit they came back strongly in the last ten minutes and deservedly scored a well worked try. Indeed if it wasn`t for Jago Hammersley putting in a couple of `bone crunchers` near Falmouth`s try line it could have been a far more edgy last few minutes.

Falmouth can be delighted with the form that they currently showing and building on the strong finish from last season.
