U8 v Hafodrynys (Away) 18 Mar 2012

35-30 Win

Despite a few fairly fragile parental (and coaches) heads following Wales' triumph on Saturday eight Chiefs made their way to the wilds of Hafodyrynys on Sunday. The weather started warm but by the time of the match had deteriorated to cold showers. Despite this and the absence of some key players the Chiefs came out with all guns blazing and against a well organised Hafodyrynys side put in their most complete performance of the season.

A good first half peformance set the scene with some good tagging and supporting running. Rhys and Edward showed significant progress in their play as the game progressed, there was some good straight running from Griff and James and Seren put in his usual dependable performance.

Tries from Richard (1) and the ever prolific Nicolaj (3) kept us in the game as the teams were neck and neck right to the final wistle. For the second week in a row Joseph was man of the match with 3 tries, some excellent lines of running and good support play. In a close fought contest enjoyed by both sets of parents Monmouth ran out winners 7-6.

The boys are beginning to make great progress and with more consistency of attendance have the makings of a good team. Roll on next week!

Tries: Richard, Nicolaj (3), Joseph (3)
