Weston built a good first half lead, then let the hosts back into the match, but a late surge sealed another high scoring victory.
The Development Squad visited a Chard 2nd team on a run of three wins and never to be underestimated.
Weston travelled with only one replacement but were camped in the home teams half for the first quarter, Pj Grimes scrambling over for the first try on 17 minutes, conversion missed. James Harris then used his pace to finish off a flowing move when Darran Burns drew the defence before slipping a short pass to the winger. Burns then popped another short pass to Frazer Luxon who had enough speed to make the line, but Burns went down heavily and had to be replaced by James Disney. Dan Prime was successful with his third conversion attempt. The pack was reshuffled to accommodate Disney with flanker Brett Powers moving into the backs. Chard managed a try with 10 minutes of the first half left but Adam Godfrey showed a touch of class to finish another sweeping backs move just before the half time whistle. Weston 22 to 5 up at half time.
The Hosts came out strongly after the break forcing a penalty within 4 minutes, a second shortly after was just missed, Chard tails were up and as they battered on Weston's door they were rewarded with a try and conversion 15 minutes in, the lead was cut to 7 points.
Chard sustained their pack based attacks but left themselves vulnerable to counter attacks from the devastating pace of the Development backs. First Godfrey doubled his tally, then Powers justified his move into the backs with a try for Prime to add his second conversion. It was then Dan Prime who added the seventh try with 5 minutes to go.
The Home side then launched a fighting comeback, literally, to secure a third try in the dying seconds, with a conversion.
Weston were tested by a big side, breaking down fast paced attacks and thwarting rolling mauls.Special mention to the Weston Pack, shoving a large opposition around at will on every scrum, Ward, Burton & Grimes in the front row, Luxon & Bush in the boiler.
Man of the Match goes to Brett Powers who worked hard at flanker but came out to centre where he continued the hard tackling and popped up with a try.
