North Petherton under 12s entertained a big powerful Ivel Barbarians side but a big display from the Pethy forwards paved the way for a resounding victory by 48-14.

A hat-trick of tries from Zabalea and one from his twin brother Isaac and a man of the match performance by Jools Wheeler (four tries) and two conversions each for Jack Rees and Hugh Ogle made up the scoring.
