U9 v Gwernyfed (Away) 09 Dec 2012

20-45 Loss

A crisp clear morning saw the Chiefs travel up into the hills to play Gwernyfed. Always a tough fixture but one the Chiefs relish and with only ten player’s available substitutions were not an option. Therefore when Theo took a knock during the second half Gwernyfed kindly reduced the game to nine a side until Theo was well enough to resume. Griff opened the scoring for the Chiefs and as all present on the day concurred, the Chiefs played their best Rugby of the season to date. Team spirit was superb and various players shook off some bruising tackles and played on regardless. Despite a lack of recent games the Chiefs knuckled down and got on with it and produced some sublime phases of play but ultimately on the day a well drilled and committed home team ran out deserved victors.

May not have been the result we wanted but you could not fault the Chiefs passion for the game and it was truly a TEAM performance.

As always in this fixture the greatest accolade went to the Home Teams number 2 who once again proved to be our nemesis – respect.

Tries: Griff Copley, Theo Mayell, Nikolaj Spooner, Charlie Powell
