U11 v New Panteg (Away) 20 Nov 2011

A damp, grey November morning saw Monmouth in a round Robin with New Panteg and Caldicott.

Our first match against Caldicott caught the boy’s cold with the team finding themselves three tries down after only five minutes. However, the boys managed to staunch the tide of Caldicott attack with improved defence and George led the fight back with a try. Gus and Sam added a further two to finish the half level. Caldicott were clearly surprised by the turn in fortunes and Monmouth finished the game by adding two more tries to win the match.

The second game against New Panteg started very brightly with three tries scored in the first half from John, Owain and Rory. However, the second half saw Monmouth tiring with missed tackles and New Panteg started to come back into the game with a try after the interval. New Panteg sensing the opportunity upped their game and snatched a draw with the final play of the match.
