U10 v Abergavenny (Home) 03 Nov 2013

5-35 Loss

Bright sunshine welcomed Abergavenny to Chippie on this Sunday morning providing everyone with a much welcome break from the recent rain!

Despite being half term the Chiefs still managed to raise a squad of some 19 players so the decision was made to play a game of 4 halves to ensure everybody got a chance to play. With the Chiefs squad expanding rapidly in recent weeks the boys are still very much in the embryonic stages of team dynamics which meant

Abergavenny could rely on their strong team discipline to overwhelm the home side. By the end of the 3rd half they had established a commanding 5 nil lead which they were never to relinquish. A lack of tackling from the home side almost ended in an Abergavenny rout but the Chiefs pulled a try back with a well deserved try from a fine solo run by Nikolaj Spooner from deep inside his own half.

Once again a good natured local derby which received strong vocal support from the touchlines followed by hot food and great hospitality in the recently refurbished clubhouse.

Tries: Nikolaj Spooner
