Truro 1st XV v Exeter School, NatWest U18 Cup

On Wednesday 12 October, Truro hosted Exeter School in the 2nd round of the NatWest national cup. Recent results suggested that there would be little between the two sides and this proved to be the case as both side’s defences were dominant throughout the game. Truro led 9-5 going into the final minute, courtesy of three successful penalties by Bath Academy fly half William Hooper.

Following a dangerous tackle and a subsequent yellow card by Truro, Exeter scored with the last play of the match as their line out drove over for a try to give the visitors a slender 10-9 victory.
