U13 v Drybrook (Away) 13 Jan 2013

Game 1: Drybrook 7 v Monmouth 22
Game 2: Hereford 12 v Monmouth 17

Monmouth Tigers travelled to Drybrook for a double header against the hosts and Hereford. On what was a crisp but sunny morning the small crowd were entertained by some exciting running rugby by all three teams.

Monmouth’s size and overall physicality eventually dominated the Drybrook 15, with tries from Hughes, Brown and Lanfear.

Albeit a shorter game Monmouth then played Hereford after a 10 minute rest. This encounter proved a stiffer challenge but Monmouth eventually developed their rucking game, securing a platform for the back line to stretch the Hereford defensive line. Hereford fought back and it looked like a draw until Hughes spotted a gap on the blind side and ran in a try from within his own half to secure the win with 2 minutes left on the clock.

Overall a good effort from this ‘new’ squad of players but plenty of work to do in the tackle and breakdown area if they are to compete with stronger teams in the months ahead.

Tries: Josh Hughes (3), Ellis Brown (2), Max Roberts, Cole Lanfear
Conv: Hughes (2)
