U8 v Pontypool (Home) 03 Nov 2013

This weekend saw the sunshine returning to Chippenham Fields with most teams playing at home. The Griffins – Monmouths U8’s were delighted to welcome Abergavenny and Pontypool.

The Griffins had a great turnout as usual, despite it being half term. The Griffins had 18 boys from their squad of 27 available so put out two strong sides which made for a really enjoyable morning of rugby for all with all the players getting a few games.

Abergavenny had beaten a Monmouth team in the recent Tournament final by scoring a try in the last minute, so it was pleasing to see a great improvement in The Griffins play which resulted in both Monmouth teams beating Abergavenny 4 V 1 and 5 V 4 with the Monmouth trys being scored by Harry 2, Vince and Sam in the first match and Finley 2, Robert, Gus and Alistair in the second game. The success was continued against Pontypool with Monmouth running out winners in both these games too.

The Griffins

Final scores against Pontypool were 7 V 4 and 5 V 3 with some more great trys from Finley 2, Robert 4 and Gus in the first game and Harry 3 and Vince 2 in the second. These wins were very pleasing as the boys trained hard the week before in the torrential rain.

All teams enjoyed after match pasta and drinks in the newly refurbished dining area upstairs at the club. Thanks to Abergavenny and Pontypool for making the morning such a friendly and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
