U9 v Abergavenny (away) 05 May 2013

Glorious sunshine saw the Chiefs travel the short distance to Usk Showground to participate in the Abergavenny RFC Rugby Festival.
For once we got off to flying start with victory in the first game courtesy of a single try from Theo Mayell who also picked up the Man of the Match Award.

The second game saw our success continue with two more tries from Theo and one from Ben Ford with Nikolaj picking up Man of the Match.

Therefore aspirations going into the third game were high but during the two hour interval we forgot how to tackle and lost out to a well drilled St Peters side from Cardiff six tries to 3 which was strange as they drew their first two games.

Such mistakes were not repeated in the next game as we eased past a much improved Usk side with tries from Osian and Richard.
To progress through to the semi final we had to win the last game against Ystrad Rhondda. Both teams were very well matched and the end result of a draw was probably a fair result given the amount of effort both sides put into the game. Theo contributed yet another try but Rhys came out of nowhere with a dazzling jinxing run to score our try of the day.

We may have missed out on the knockout stage by just one point but the Chiefs did themselves proud and rounded off a fantastic season with some great Rugby and great memories. Well done everyone.
