U10 v Abergavenny (Away) 18 Sep 2011

8-2 Win

On the weekend of the Abergavenny Food Festival, the Bears travelled to the food capital of Gwent for their first match of the season and what a feast of rugby they served up! From the first whistle they made hard yards when carrying the ball and constantly knocked back their opponents in the tackle. They defended strongly, limiting their opponents to playing most of the match in their own half.

The Bears regularly troubled the scorers, running up 8 tries whilst seeing their own try-line breached only twice. Big Will Ruck, always in the thick of the action, gave a real man of the match performance, scoring 5 great tries with Josh Lewis chipping in with 3 fine solo efforts of his own.

All 15 squad members played a part and all acquitted themselves very well in trying conditions, with the wind and heavy downpours adding to the mix.

FINAL SCORE: Abergavenny 2 – Monmouth Bears 8

Tries: Will Ruck (5), Josh Lewis (3)
