1XV v Nantyglo (Away) 05 Apr 2003

30-13 Win

On a glorious Spring day it was obvious the minds of the Monmouth three-quarters were on things like the view of the hills opposite Nantyglo RFC's ground for at least the first half an hour, if the missed tackles and other basic errors were anything to go by, before clawing their way back into the game and then racing away in the last stages to win 13-30 for a long awaited win.

Druids v Berry Hill (Away) 05 Apr 2003

15-30 Loss

Druids v Old Tylerians (Away) 29 Mar 2003

cancelled

1XV v Chepstow (Away) 28 Mar 2003

5-5 Draw

6 Nations rugby last weekend would have again taken away the chance of rugby for the masses, but for Chepstow agreeing to play a 'friendly' under lights on Friday evening.

As a result though a different mix of players are available at such a time and the team that Monmouth put out was an unusual blend of young and old (18 to 46 years) and experience and potential. The weather was continuing dry with a hard ground and many disruptive lumps with the only consolation being that Chepstow were equally a scratch side with the same strengths and weaknesses.

1XV v RTB Ebbw Vale (Home) 15 Mar 2003

18-29 Loss

The mid season break for the 6 Nations matches has done little for the reputation of the Welsh team, and these playing gaps compounded by bad weather postponements, has produced a Monmouth team lacking cohesion and fitness and easy prey for RTB Ebbw Vale who came needing the three points to avoid relegation.

Individually players played well but when it came to the hard yards and the need for decisive tackling, Monmourth were found wanting and lost in the end 18-29.

Druids v Llandaff (Home) 15 Mar 2003

7-19 Loss

1XV v Bedlinog (Away) 01 Mar 2003

postponed

Druids v Old Tylerians (Home) 01 Mar 2003

36-0 Win

1XV v Cinderford (Away) 21 Feb 2003

34-19 Win

Because of the impending international clash between Wales and England, there were no scheduled Saturday games for Monmouth, and so a 'flood-lit friendly' was arranged at Cinderford between their 'A' team and Monmouth's on the Friday night.

1XV v Cardiff HSOB (Home) 08 Feb 2003

10-10 Draw

The 'City Slickers' (Cardiff HSOB) came to Monmouth last Saturday with a prior win to their advantage and a superior league position to boot, but they were distinctly glad to settle for a draw after 80 minutes of keenly contested play.
