Druids v Risca (XXXX) 15 Sep 2001

0-53 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.

Druids v Usk (Away) 08 Sep 2001

29-7 Win

See 1XV report.

1XV v Bargoed (Away) 08 Sep 2001

11-48 Loss

The report last week of Monmouth RFC's encouraging trial matches looks a little lame in the light of the club's results today. The Druids started very well, with a good win against arch enemies Usk. The final score was 29-7 with the Druids running five tries to one. The 1st XV however, went down heavily, 11-48, whilst away in their first league fixture to a very lively Bargoed.

Playing with the wind, Monmouth found themselves under pressure for the first few scrums, leading to a loss against the head on the 22 yard gain line and the first try for the home team.
