U12 v Caldicot (Away) 23 Mar 2014

Caerleon 10 – 5 Monmouth

Try Scorer: Josh Lewis

Caldicot 28 – 10 Monmouth

Try Scorers: Josh Bicknell & Josh Lewis

Having to borrow five opposition players for each game, Monmouth U12s took part in a round-robin at Caldicot, with Caerleon also in attendance.

With unfamiliarity within the ranks and one or two players out of position, the first game against a huge Caerleon side was rather disjointed – many missed tackles proved costly. Josh Lewis scored a consolation try out wide with the last play of the game.

The second game against another huge forward dominated team saw Caldicot establish superiority early on. Again, missed tackles proved costly as the hosts were able to break through Monmouth’s defensive line at will, finishing off their four tries under the posts to give their kicker 100% success with his conversions.

Monmouth finally gained a foot-hold late on in the game – Josh Bicknell drove over from close quarters and captain for the day Josh Lewis battled through to touch-down right on the final whistle.
