U14 v NHSOB (Home) 20 Oct 2013

26-22 Win

Monmouth Tigers entertained NHSOB on Chippenham fields, an evenly balanced encounter of exciting midi rugby played out on a sunny Autumn morning. As much as anything it was a great advert for high tempo, end to end rugby that did the players, coaches and parents proud.

Monmouth started strongly finishing the first half 19-5 ahead on the back of some excellent interplay and quick thinking in the half backs, strong tackling in the midfield, built on excellent scrummaging and graft in the pack.

Newport started the second period determined to make an impact on the game, resulting in two quick tries in the first quarter of the half, taking the game to the edge,with Monmouth defending a four point lead with less than ten minutes to play. After some sustained pressure scrum half Hughes spotted a gap, chipped through and secured the fourth and decisive try, converted by Bayliss.The visitors fought back but Monmouth closed the game out to secure victory on the day.

Thank you to NHSOB players, coaches and parents for an enjoyable morning's rugby, played in great spirit by both teams.

Also big thanks again to Steve Jones for his firm and fair refereeing, which once again added to the mornings excitement.

Tries: Brown, Hughes (3)
Conversions: Lane, Bayliss (2)
