U9 v Croesyceiliog (Home) 30 Sep 2012

Fantastic weather saw the Chiefs entertain Croesy at home and we were far too generous in the first half letting Croesy build up an early advantage which saw them leading 4-1 by half time. The Chiefs gained some momentum in the second half narrowing the deficit to 7- 3. Whilst we were all reading the same book some Chiefs were on different pages today!

The second match was a much tighter contest with Croesy just squeezing a narrow victory to win 2-1. Our fortunes improved as the matches progressed with Ben “The Terrier” Ford fearing nobody and tackling everybody without exception.

Great tries from the ever dependable Charlie Powell and Theo Mayell with Joseph Henry delighted to score just before the final whistle. “Taking one for the Team” resulted in Richard Jones being taken to A & E as a precaution. Nothing broken thank goodness so we can look forward to his rugged determination at next weeks Tournament! Being honest the better organised team won fair and square on the day but the Chiefs continue to grow in stature with every outing.

Score: 3-7 and 1-2

Tries: Charlie Powell (2), Theo Mayell, Joseph Henry
