U8 v Cinderford (Home) 25 Mar 2012

The better weather resulted in a much better turn out today. The Chiefs played three matches against Cinderford U8's. The sun resulted in some excellent running rugby as the boys continue to improve.

In the first match Monmouth were the quicker out of the starting blocks with tries from Nicolaj (2) and Finlay seeing the chiefs 3-1 ahead at half time. Cinderford rallied but second half tries from the last two weeks' man of the match Joseph, Nicolaj (2) and Finlay (1) saw Monmouth win a close fought victory (7-6).

The second match saw better tagging from the boys and a Cinderford side who lost their shape and discipline. Two tries from man of the match Ben, Charlie, Nicolaj (2), Richard and a stunning effort from Edward resulted in Monmouth running out comfortable winners (8-4).

In the third shortened game Nicolaj added to his impressive tally with 2 tries. Charlie demonstrated what a strong runner he can be with ball in hand and Ollie scored a sparkling debut try to round off a good day with a 4-2 win.

The Chiefs continue to improve in all aspects of their game and should, if their current form continues, finish the season strongly.
