U13 v Bromyard (Home) 20 Oct 2013

25-44 Loss

MATCH REPORT – Sunday 21st October 2013

Monmouth U12s / 13s Combined vs. Bromyard U12s / 13s Combined.

U12 / U13 v Bromyard

Monmouth R.F.C. under 12s played their first match of the season against a combined Bromyard team of U12s & 13s on a beautiful autumn morning made for rugby. With a few new faces, some playing their first ever competitive match, a tough task awaited them as the visitors fielded at least six strapping U13s lads and dare I say, one or two older?

With only two home U13s bolstering the team, it soon became apparent the physical gulf would be challenging, but to be fair, the boys battled to the end, encouraged each other throughout and received fantastic vocal support from the touchline.

One particularly large Bromyard player seemed to make all the difference, scoring half of the visitors’ eight tries on his own. Monmouth hit back with four of their own, two from Harry Williams, and one each from Matt Ford and Josh Lewis. Ben Pilot added a conversion and a penalty, with the visitors winning 44 – 25.

On the day, the score-line was not important for Monmouth – what shone through was a real team spirit and some encouraging performances from many boys totally new to rugby.
