1XV v Aberdare (Home) 02 Nov 2002

23-26 Loss

In appalling weather and a keenly contested match, Monmouth came second best to their visitors from Division 6 Central, Aberdare last Saturday.

At the start the normal strength of the local team, their forwards, was lacking and initially seemed to be treating the game as the friendly it was and therefore something demanding less concentration then usual, which was a pity because their three-quarters were on song and itching to show their pace.

1XV v Fairwater (Home) 26 Oct 2002

13-19 Loss

In a tough game on a sunny day with the pitch bedecked with new flags and post protectors generously supplied by Maddock Tool and Plant Hire, Monmouth just fell short in trying to take Fairwater's unbeaten crown from them.

Druids v Pontllanfraith (Home) 19 Oct 2002

34-13 Win

1XV v Bargoed (Away) 12 Oct 2002

13-34 Loss

The challenge Bargoed, the league leaders, represented for Monmouth last Saturday was always expected to be large, but to the delight of the large home crowd, despite a converted try by the visitors after only five minutes, it took them a further 57 minutes before they scored again and then through a penalty kick and a 0-10 lead, because of the way Monmouth were matching them for pace and commitment.

Druids v Usk (Home) 05 Oct 2002

20-10 Win

1XV v Ynysddu (Home) 05 Oct 2002

28-13 Win

On yet another sunny autumn day, Monmouth entertained Ynysddu playing first towards the river end and despite the wind it was fly-half Croudace who was to open the scoring with two sweetly struck penalties in the tenth and thirteenth minute. But then the worm turned. Ynysddu lost a man to the sin-bin for punching and yet the remaining 14 players staged a come back before his ten minutes were up, levelling the game at 6-6 with two penalties of their own.
