WELLINGTON U15s welcomed Exeter Athletic to The Athletic Ground on Sunday.

Neither side had played for a few weeks due to the weather so both teams were keen to play some rugby.

Even though the pitch had to be shortened by 20m for safety reasons this turned out to be a very even and enjoyable game.

Exeter started well and looked like they would score first when Aston Adams suddenly stole the ball from Exeter when under his own posts.

Wellington kicked clear down the touch line and Bayley Lee chased hard and won the ball form his opposite number.

Two quick rucks later and Ben Briddon raced clear to score a try in what was the first time Wellington had possessed the ball.

A short time later Jonah Kyle raced through from 40m after a good backs move as Wellington proved they were determined to play some rugby even in the atrocious conditions.

Exeter scored next but then Kyle picked up a ball off his bootlaces and fed Bayley Lee who raced up the wing to score from 50m out.

Exter scored again before Tom Farrow scored off a great long pass by Briddon. This made it 20 points to 10 at half time. 

Exeter then scored their third to narrow the gap before Max McPhail raced over from a lineout to make it 25-15.

Exeter then scored two tries caused by Wellington making handling errors as they tried to deal with the kickoffs.

Wellington then did well to make their way up to the Exeter try line and will Barnes finished it off from close range. Exeter then scored right at the end to make it 30 points all.
