U8 v RTB Ebbw Vale (Home) 11 Dec 2011

Sunday dawned cold and windy with heavy rain forecast, fortunately the rain held off but there were some very cold parents and supporters on the touch line, luckily they were in for an exciting morning of Rugby. Monmouth U8s had two games to play, firstly RTB Ebbw Vale and then Croesyceilog.

The Ebbw Vale game was certainly the best game of U8 Rugby I have ever seen, the game was very fast and furious with a superb display of running, support play, passing and tagging. It was simply brilliant and the outcome, against an excellent opposition, was a well deserved 10 points to 7 win. The whole team played brilliantly with Grif getting his first match try of the season.

After a very short break, too short for tired legs to recover but it was too cold to delay, we kicked off against Croesyceilog. Again we had an excellent game with more superb support play, running and passing. Unfortunately in the second half tired legs resulted in a few tags being missed and despite some amazing acrobatics and we lost 8 points to 3.

So after two great games of Rugby the U8s had one win and one loss - and had displayed a superb team performance. All the parents and coaches enjoyed a great mornings rugby and look forward to more stunning games.

Man of the Match(s) was Joseph for a great all round performance and in particular some superb tagging.
