U13 v Cwmbran (home) 29 Nov 2015

0-10 Loss

A tough game for the home team, conditions were difficult with sodden ground and a strong wind.

Monmouth were immediately on the back foot with all the possession staying with the visitors, this pressure resulted in a try for Cwmbran. Monmouth fought back, but the visitors kept up the pressure forcing a “soft” try in the corner.

Monmouth regrouped and addressed some of the issues and took the visitors on up front, although this action had its casualties, losing Morgan the captain at half time.

Substitutions were made and the team focus changed, and the game management was improved – some excellent kicking by Charlie Weldon the Monmouth No10 and also a good display by Ollie Williams who played fullback and then later on the wing. Harry Powell worked hard in the forwards and put in a good account of himself turning over the ball several times.

The squad of 19 all played a part in what was a really tough game – well done lads and unlucky with the result.

Monmouth Captained by Morgan Wainwright.
