1XV v Bedlinog (Away) 09 Feb 2002

10-15 Loss

A game of bad weather conditions, scoring first, dogged defence, and crucially missed kicks was Monmouth’s typical experience away at Bedlinog last Saturday.

Despite arriving late and displeasing the referee, Monmouth, playing with the slope and the elements, drew first blood with an excellent, if unconverted, try, 15 minutes after the start, by captain Andrew Davies with the ball having passed through several pairs of hands during a free flowing movement of some fifty yards.

58-0 Win

Druids v Pontllanfraith (XXXX) 26 Jan 2002

44-7 Win

1XV v Pontllanfraith (Home) 26 Jan 2002

6-7 Loss

A 6-7 loss to league high-riders Pontllanfraith who were the visitors to Monmouth on Saturday was just about right.

It was they who scored the only try of a game played in exceedingly greasy conditions, and it was Monmouth who failed to clinch the game in the last ten minutes with two missed chances.

1XV v Blaenau Gwent (Away) 19 Jan 2002

14-5 Win

Another deserved 14-5 win for Monmouth at Abertillery last Saturday was not without event.

Having lost heavily to Blaenau Gwent in September, the challenge was a big one but a penalty conversion after half an hour by full back Rob Frost unsettled the home team who were already displaying dissent at some of the decisions made by a fit and decisive referee who gave what he saw and treated both sides equally.

Druids v Hereford (XXXX) 05 Jan 2002

1XV v RTB Ebbw Vale (Away) 05 Jan 2002

25-17 Win

Conditions were so questionable both underfoot and in terms of visibility for Monmouth’s 1st XV away at RTB Ebbw Vale last Saturday, that the game was in doubt almost until the kick off. The ground was still quite frozen in many places and it was only the determination of the players that ensured it went ahead and fortunate that nothing more serious than a few bumps and scrapes were suffered in what was an absorbing win by 25-17 for Monmouth. In fact even the referee would have struggled to have seen everything that took place in the sometimes all embracing fog.
