Druids v Berry Hill (Home) 09 Nov 2002

21-14 Win

1XV v Cardiff HSOB (Away) 09 Nov 2002

9-21 Loss

A Monmouth side weakened by injury missed the chance to head their Cardiff High School Old Boys opponents by losing 9-21 when a win would have seen them move into the promotion grouping.

Despite trying hard right to the end, Monmouth never recovered from a first fifteen minute bombardment which brought the home side a thirteen point lead, first from two well struck penalties and then a converted try following a transfer along the line to the right wing who chipped his opponent to score.

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.

Druids v Gwynyfrydd (Home) 02 Nov 2002

18-7 Win

Druids v Ross (Away) 26 Oct 2002

14-10 Win

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

Druids v Chepstow (Away) 12 Oct 2002

23-27 Loss

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
