1XV v Gwernyfed (away) 17 Sep 2016

16-5 Win

Cup Win for Monmouth

In the first round proper of the National Bowl tournament, Monmouth travelled away to Gwernyfed last Saturday on yet another sunny if windy September day - a day made a little more grand by the presence of Rick O'Shea and his Scrum Five Camera.

With the 2nd XVs also playing on the adjacent pitch the atmosphere was welcoming and loud. And the matches did not let the game down as The Druids stuck at it throughout despite having no substitutes and ending up with just 13 players on the pitch eventually losing 17-10. A great result considering the odds.

1XV v New Tredegar (home) 10 Sep 2016

37-10 Win

Bonus point win for Monmouth

New Tredegar may have lost some players in the close season but Monmouth were a side transformed since their setback last week at Usk or perhaps, because of it.

Unusually, the weather was fine in the Rhymney valley having left rain at home, and unusually, too, the Monmouth pack was to be far too strong in the set piece for New Tredegar.

1XV v Usk (home) 03 Sep 2016

6-23 Loss

Disappointment for Monmouth at Usk

Monmouth began the new season away at Usk helped by a few veteran players given that several of their squad were unavailable. And in the first half it showed, as Usk took the game to them playing with much more purpose and power.

An early penalty for handling in a ruck brought the first points for Usk and soon after they spread the ball wide to put their right wing over untouched for an unconverted try near the corner.

1XV v Berry Hill (home) 27 Aug 2016

17-17 Draw

A Great Tribute To A 'Top Man'

Last Saturday was the setting for a clash on Chippenham between Monmouth and Berry Hill Squads which was well attended by members, young and old, from both towns in fond tribute to Ian 'Sedge' Seymour, coach and supporter of both sides over the years. Proceeds were earmarked for Velindre Hospital who did their utmost to spare everyone from their losing Ian.

1XV v New Panteg (home) 20 Aug 2016

Rugby returned to Monmouth when the local club played host on Chippenham last Saturday to both New Panteg and Andover brought there by Mark Wilding a well known former player.

The trial game format meant that they each played one another with keen competition all around but with Andover leading marginally on the scoreboard at least.

Monmouth were well served by a sizeable if relatively inexperienced squad which played well as a team for so early in the season although certain aspects, mainly involving the pack, still need some attention.
