U11 v Penarth (away) 21 Sep 2014

The Chiefs opened the season with a new fixture on the calendar this year away at Penarth in brilliant sunshine. Despite only managing to conjure up 8 players the hosts kindly provided the extra players to make up a team and it was game on.

With such depleted numbers it was with some nervousness that our anxious parents watched the game but the Chiefs proved the doubts unfounded with a real team effort .The boys played out of their skins digging deep for each other and really putting their bodies on the line with a gutsy performance.

At the end of the second half the home team had edged it by a single try and with the decision made to play a third half their stamina and skills were in evidence as they ran amok amongst a shattered Chiefs side. Unsure of the final score but everyone agreed that the Chiefs had exceeded all expectations and in that respect showed great potential for the rest of the season.

Post match hospitality was much appreciated an d the boys rounded off the day with a dip in the sea at Barry Island !

Monmouth Chiefs lost by 4 tries to 3
