Monmouth miss opportunities

Chepstow 20 Monmouth 7

With an immense challenge of playing away against second in the league Chepstow with several of the squad having to support in spirit only due to injuries, Monmouth set about their task up the slope with a vigour and determination which initially took the hosts aback.

A Good Day For Rugby

Last Saturday always promised a feast of rugby as Wales took on England at Cardiff but the sport itself excelled both from this intense spectacle at an international level where Wales fell just short, but just as important were the games played on the Sports Ground in memory of friend to many and renowned rugby warrior, Will Copley, who passed away just over a year ago at far too young an age.

Tries: S.Edwards

1XV v Llanhilleth (home) 04 Feb 2017

58-21 Win

Monmouth back to bonus winning ways.

On an unusually greasy Sports Ground pitch due to previous rain, Monmouth needed to show they had recovered their confidence after the drubbing they had received at Caerphilly and this they did in almost complete style.

The first scrum set the scene with Monmouth forcing a penalty and from the ensuing line-out the ball moved across field to the right where 'big Jono', their Kiwi 2nd row, was on hand to dive over for his maiden try for the Club, complet a strong charge for the line by Green, a young prop whose confidence grows with every game.

Tries: J.Pahulu, J.Sparey, A.Nove, K.Mobbs-Morgan (3), T.Hawkins (2), L.Goddard, S.Parsons
Conv: S.Parsons (4)

Sound 13 try beating for Monmouth

After the high of last week when beating New Tredegar 60-5, the tide was truly turned when visiting Caerphilly last Saturday.

It was always going to be a tough call as Caerphilly are having a strong resurgence this season, but to come away defeated 81-7 (or 13 tries to 1) despite significant forced changes to the team gives cause for alarm.

The opening try, run back from a deep kick, with full back Candy evading 6 tackles to score under the posts, may have been due to the Monmouth boys still mentally being on the coach.

Tries: S.Nuove

Nine Try Bonanza For Monmouth

Having failed to crack Amman Utd. away the week before in Cup rugby, in far better playing conditions at the Sports Ground last Saturday, Monmouth again displayed their improving team-work and confidence to beat visitors, New Tredegar, by nine tries to one and gain a try scoring bonus point at the same time.

Numerous individuals stood out but pre-eminent amongst them was captain and flanker Tom Rees who seemed to be everywhere in defence or attack, assisting unselfishly in the scoring of many tries as well as landing two of his own.

Tries: D.Hellard, Smith, L.Goddard, T.Green (2), T.Rees (2), S.Parsons, K.Mobbs-Morgan
Conv: P.Emanuelli (6)
