Evesham under 16s continued in good form in 2018 with two wins in the last two Sundays, both away from home. They started slowly against Leamington and found themselves 10-0 down within the first few minutes with two tries from Leamington's inside centre but responded with four tries in the first half from Jake Smith, Toby Turner, Sam Rogers and Kieran Downey. Toby Turner converted one but was unlucky with other attempts with one hitting the post.
The second half followed a similar pattern with Evesham's forwards dominating and the backs showing strength in both defence and attack. Further tries from Jake Smith and kieran Downey and a conversion by Toby Turner took Evesham clear with the Leamington centre completing his hatrick to leave the final score at 34-17.
The previous week saw Evesham travel to Gordon League in Gloucester where they also started slowly but converted a 12-0 defecit to a 44-12 victory with tries from James Carsberg, Angus Grelak, Jake Smith, James Costall (2) and Tom Hedworth. Toby Turner was on superb kicking form that day converting 5 of the 6 tries.
