1XV v Crumlin (Away) 27 Oct 2001

6-16 Loss

Monmouth’s hopes of building on last week’s stirring win when visiting Crumlin this Saturday were not to be, when they succumbed to a bigger and more determined pack.

Despite being the more adventurous and enterprising team in the first quarter and even being the first to score after twenty minutes via a Rob Frost penalty, Monmouth soon found themselves frustrated by spoiling at its best.

Folowing several warnings for illegally slowing the game down, it was against the run of play when Crumlin went 5-3 in front after 25 minutes following a drive from a line-out.

Druids v Chepstow (Away) 27 Oct 2001

20-18 Win

1XV v RTB Ebbw Vale (Home) 20 Oct 2001

55-0 Win

Monmouth’s 1st XV came good on Saturday with a 57-0 thrashing of visitors RTB Ebbw Vale.

The pattern was set in the first minute when Phil Anstey robbed the ball at the back of an RTB scrum and ran unopposed to score near the posts making the conversion by Rob Frost a formality. There was to follow 7 other tries, all by threequarters plus 7 conversions and a penalty by Frost who was back to his very best form.

Druids v Drybrook (XXXX) 20 Oct 2001

15-10 Win

1XV v Bedlinog (Home) 06 Oct 2001

7-35 Loss

Druids v Bromyard (Away) 06 Oct 2001

31-15 Win

The Druids were forced to make many changes to their side when they travelled to Bromyard. An injury crisis in the club caused great disruption to the playing side and players beyond the age of 40 years were called up to fill the gaps.

Age, however, also brings experience and this proved crucial against a younger Bromyard side.

1XV v Pontllanfraith (Away) 29 Sep 2001

7-28 Loss

Druids v Pontllanfraith (XXXX) 29 Sep 2001

20-5 Win

1XV v Trinant (Home) 22 Sep 2001

17-18 Loss

1XV v BlaenauGwent (Home) 15 Sep 2001

10-31 Loss

On a beautiful day for fast running rugby, Monmouth 1st XV took on Blaenau Gwent at home and went onto attack from the start.

There was a strong wind blowing diagonally across the field and Baenau’s good line kickers were able to kick long against the run of play.

Although Monmouth’s defence appeared to have the situation covered, the ball bounced cruelly and the visitors were in front with a converted try.
