U12 v Llandaff (home) 14 Dec 2014

57-0 Win

An impressive rugby display from Monmouth Lions taking on visiting a 12 man team from Newent at the Comprehensive school pitch.

From the opening whistle the Monmouth speed, determination and fitness shone through, the forwards were strong, the rucking and scrummaging was excellent with the Monmouth lads competing for and winning the majority of the ball on the floor, scrums were being won against the head causing the backs to realign and attack resulting in the score constantly ticking over, Angus Whitehead showed his individual strength by dragging four Newent players to the line for his first of two tries. The backs played with maturity, they held their lines and drove forward to get over the gainline on every play – Charlie Weldon led the backs and drove the plays, off loading to his wing man and Captain Jonathan Pearce who used his sidestep and speed to embarrass the defence at every opportunity.

The game was controlled thoughout by the home team despite some increasing provocation from the visitors, well done to Ellis Shepherd for playing scrumhalf also to Xav Brevet for dropping into the fullback position, all positions played really well and as per our pre match and half time discussion – you made your parents, coaches and club proud, well done all.

Tries: Jonathan Pearce (2), Angus Whitehead (2), Josh Houghton Snell,Benedict Pask-Williams, Oliver Williams
Conv: Jonathan Pearce (3), Charlie Weldon (3)
