Sharks Rampant Once Again
An extremely mild Sunday morning for the time of year saw the Sharks entertain a newly formed Cwmbran side who despite a shortage of numbers kindly decided to play two games against the shoal of Sharks. High attendance once again gave the coaches an abundance of choices with all Sharks getting a good run out.
In full flow the Sharks are hard to stop at present let alone beat and today was no exception with a total lock out in defence with no tries conceded.
Monmouth Sharks won 6 - NIL and 5 - NIL.
Tries: Finlay Robertson (3), William Freeman (2), Mattie Cotton (2), Dominic Clayton,
Dylan Meek, Barney Thomas Hewartson and Callum Uttley
Lovely dry day with another great turnout from 21 boys including another new squad member, welcome Sam Chamberlain. We now have a squad of 28 boys with over 20 turning out every week, which is fantastic.
What a great day. Crisp and dry, but the pitches were a bit sticky in Hereford. We don’t very often come across teams with squads as large as ours so a visit to Hereford turned out really well as they had 22 boys to match our 22 boys, which made a great change from the week before when we took 25 boys to St Julians to find out on arrival they only had 9 boys!
As Hereford had so many boys we played on three pitches and ran three teams each which made for 9 thrilling games.
Team 1 – 3 wins
0 V 9
5 V 10
5 V 9
Team 2 – 1 draw, 2 wins
5 V 5
1 V 7
3 V 6
Team 3 – 2 draws, 1 loss
A mixed bag of an “U12s” team, supplemented with a smattering of U11s and U13s players, made their way to Hereford for the first time since the distant days of tag rugby. Monmouth’s “Dirty Dozen” with no subs would have their work cut-out against a large Hereford squad, who were able to make numerous rolling changes, thus keeping legs fresh and energy levels up.
Tries: Henry Watkins, Flynn Ruddiforth
Conv: Ben Pilot (2)
Having suffered a dip in form recently the Chiefs met early at a muddy Hereford to get in some pre match training the results of which showed immediately despite the fact that only 50% of the squad were available on the day.
Dividing the squad into two teams of 8 with the Chiefs numbers made up of 3 guest players from Hereford the boys put in some sterling team displays and there were some close fought games. Indeed the Chiefs did themselves proud once they had mastered the different rules and put in some crunching tackles to halt the tenacious and well drilled opposition.
Tries: Charlie Powell (3), Edward McCoy, Josh Foxwell, Ethan Bayliss, Guest Players(3)
Forty-four tries in one MUDDY week!
Following on from their 10 nil demolition of St Julian’s last week the Sharks travelled to Hereford keen to continue to their winning ways.
Game 1: won 11 tries to nil
Game 2: won 12 tries to nil
Game 3: won 6 tries to nil
Game 4: won 5 tries to one
Tries: William Freeman (6), Mattie Cotton (4), Jack Buckner (4), Oscar Battersby (4) Finlay Robertson (4), Mikey Nixon (3), Dominic Clayton (3), Cornelius Madler (2), Tom Coates, Noah Ryder, Dennis Spooner & George Rowlands
St Julians beat Monmouth U11 Lions by nine tries to nil.
Tries: Cam Ogilvie, Josh Lewis
Conversion: Ben Pilot
A limited number from Cinderford turned up, so a mixed side made up of Cinderford & Monmouth u7s (red bibs) played the warriors at home for a 12 a side match.
Result Cinderford & u7s Red bibs vs u7s warriors : 14 - 13
