1XV v Hereford (Away) 24 Aug 2002

21-12 Win

Druids v Trowbridge (Away) 04 May 2002

7-21 Loss

1XV v Chepstow (Home) 04 May 2002

8-17 Loss

On one of the nicest days so far this year, hopes were high that Monmouth 1st XV would add to their recent winning sequence when they entertained Chepstow in the last fixture of the season last Saturday.

1XV v Cilfynydd (Away) 27 Apr 2002

32-30 Win

Dave Croudace, Monmouth’s fly half, came of age on Saturday when his personal tally of 17 points despite severe physical pressure at times steered Monmouth to a close, but well deserved 32-30 victory at Cilfynydd.

There are no longer worries of a mathematically possible relegation, and depending on next week’s home derby against Chepstow, they could well end up mid table, which may come as a surprise for those who have read and believed the Western Mail table which has consistently misrepresented the true position.

1XV v Nantyglo (Home) 20 Apr 2002

53-5 Win

Any fears of relegation were dismissed by the most outstanding match to date of Monmouth’s season when they scored nine tries to Nantyglo’s one to beat them 53-5.

Nantyglo started the more determined from the kick-off but Monmouth defended well in a to-and-fro first fifteen minutes before the wind was put up them somewhat, when the visitors breached their line for a five points initial lead after twenty minutes.

Druids v Pontllanfraith (XXXX) 20 Apr 2002

29-7 Win

1XV v Barry (Away) 13 Apr 2002

7-25 Loss

To expect to beat Barry the current league leaders away was probably an exaggerated expectation when they only needed one more win to guarantee promotion. And if Monmouth’s supporters had any doubts, the popping of champagne corks by the home side confirmed that they had beaten their visitors 25-7.

Druids v Caldicot (XXXX) 13 Apr 2002

29-5 Win
