U9 v Gwernyfed (Away) 15 Dec 2013

Sharks Victorious Once Again

An extremely wet and windy Sunday morning saw the Sharks make their annual pilgrimage to Powys to play Gwernyfed.

Two games were played and in both the Sharks played with absolute determination and put up an awesome defensive line with every player digging deep to hold back wave after wave of attack from Gwernyfed. No matter what was thrown at them the Sharks stood firm and Gwernyfed finally blew the whistle after nearly an hour and a half of play conceding victory to the better side on the day.

Today was by far the Sharks toughest test of the season to date and boy did they deliver and in some style with their heads held high throughout – attention to detail and 100% commitment from everyone ensured victory was well deserved.

Monmouth Sharks won 5 tries to 4 and 2 tries to 1.

After the game Dylan Denne was presented with a souvenir shirt in recognition of his participation in the victorious Sharks squad as he is moving to sunnier climes (Cornwall) with immediate effect. Despite only joining the Sharks this season he made a huge impression both on and off the pitch with his steely resolve and infectious muddy smile. He has been a true joy to coach and watch play and he leaves with our very best wishes for the future.

Tries: Mattie Cotton (3), Mikey Nixon (3), Finlay Robertson
