U13 v Cheltenham Tigers (Away) 18 Dec 2011

27-39 Loss

Monmouth under 13’s travelled to Cheltenham last weekend to take on current county champions Cheltenham Tigers. It was a very cold and frosty morning but Monmouth fronted up well in the conditions.

Cheltenham got off to a flying start with 2 early tries, but Monmouth gradually pulled themselves back into the game, and finished the match the stronger team despite Cheltenham adding 5 further tries.

Rhys Carlton scored 4 excellent tries for Monmouth, and Zelig Ho added a try finishing off an superbly worked series of backs play. Monmouth were unlucky not to score a further 3 tries, but were kept out by some last gasp Cheltenham defence.

The final score was Monmouth 37 Cheltenham Tigers 39

Tries: Rhys Carlton (4), Zelig Ho
Conv: Louis MacFarlane
