U12 v Gwernyfed (Home) 06 Nov 2011

12-24 Loss

Monmouth welcomed Gwernyfed to Chippenham Fields on a perfect morning for rugby.

Tigers fielded a settled pack of forward's, with a new look back line for the game, the pack dominated the first half, taking an early lead through the strong, direct running of No 8 Ellis Brown, converted by scrum half, Josh Hughes.

However, the Gwernyfed defence held out until the break, giving themselves a chance to re-group.

The power of the Monmouth front row, Max Roberts, Dan Williams and Daf Amu took its toll and the visitors were forced to go passive in the scrum. This change impacted on the dynamic of the game, with the more experienced and settled back line of Gwernyfed taking advantage of the less experienced Tigers.

The visitors quickly took the lead with two well worked try's, before the Tigers managed to stem the flow and re-group. Gwernyfed eventually broke through the Tigers dogged defence, crossing the line for two more scores, before Monmouth pulled a consolation try back at the end of the 50 minutes.

The game was played in good spirit, with some exciting rugby from both sides.

Tries: Ellis Brown
Conv: Josh Hughes
