Ten stars for the nine Generals
Beaten 16-0 but never gave up
Team of the day on saturday must be Starcross Generals who were beaten 16-0 at North Tawton in their Division Four match. The home side heaped generous praise on Social media to their opponents who could only field nine players. North Tawton reported that Starcross never complained or stopped trying and were truly a credit to the League. This kind of praise is welcome from clubs who recognise the difficulties and problems some clubs endure.
Hopefully for the Generals their army will be at full strength for the rest of the season but in the meantime their decision to play the game without a full side sets an example to the many teams who would have cried off.
