U13 v NHSOB (Away) 27 Sep 2009

14-10 Win

We managed to make quorum for this week's game despite injuries and other absences. Traffic/direction difficulties meant we started with only thirteen players but NHSOB very kindly lent us a couple until late arrivals came. In fact, we had one for the whole game as no sooner than having a full house Will Richards had to come off as the result of a boot to the head.

For the first half we were more than a little rusty and Newport used some of their heavies to drive through us scoring two tries.

U15 v Lydney (Home) 27 Sep 2009

56-8 Win

Monmouth U15s turned in a strong performance, full of open rugby, to overcome a spirited Lydney side at Chippenham Fields this Sunday running out 56-8 winners.

U15 v Cwmbran (Away) 20 Sep 2009

Monmouth U15s took a depleted squad to visit Cwmbran. Early season congestion with School, representative schools and district committments meant that Monmouth had offered to hold a joint training session / game. Unfortunately the message hadn't got through and Cwmbran were set with a full squad.

The side had several new players playing their first game for Monmouth, and a number of other players playing out of position, but it was a side with plenty of spirit.

Late call-offs and injuries meant Monmouth were unable to field an experienced front row so uncontested scrums were called.
