U8 v New Panteg (Home) 04 Mar 2012

Winter had returned with Sunday dawning very cold, very wet and very windy. There was sleet in the air as a very cold squad of 10 U8s tried to warm up. The warm up was obviously not successful as the first game was no where near last weeks high. The cold and wet did not help but the U8s never found their rhythm, there was little passing, little support and virtually no tagging. The first game ended in a 10 : 3 defeat.

After an honest team talk the second game was played in a much more positive style. The tagging improved massively with Theo making the tag of the game, if not the season. This much improved tagging prevented New Panteg running away the game and four tries resulted in a final score of 4 : 3 to Monmouth.

Particularly in the second game there was some good running and support, man of the match went to Ben Ford for by far his best days rugby this season.
