U8 v Lydney (Away) 01 Apr 2012

Sunday saw a strong chiefs side travel deep into the forest to play Lydney.

Two excellent games of Rugby enjoyed by both sets of parents ensued. Monmouth played beautifully in attack but unfortunately defensive weakness once again cost them dear. The first match saw tries from Finlay, Charlie (2), Richard and Nicolaj (2). The final score being a debated 7-7 draw.

The second match was a much more high energy affair. Despite excellent scores from Nicolaj (2), Joseph, Finlay and a hat trick from man of the match Charlie, Monmouth were narrowly defeated 8-7.

Oliver and Ben once again showed good attacking flair and James, Griff, Oliver and Seren all showed good commitment throughout the games. The chiefs once again displayed excellent team work with good supportive running. Their defensive structure is continuing to improve with players in the right place to make tags. Unfortunately too often simple tags are still not being made. Once again this cost us dear. Roll on the south coast.

Game 1 Tries: Finlay, Charlie (2), Richard, Nicolaj (2)
Game 2 Tries: Nicolaj (2), Joseph, Finlay, Charlie (3)
