For the first time ever, the lions hosted Blackwood this weekend and with Blackwood turning up with some huge lads in the forwards the lions pack new they had to perform. The game started with the lions taking the fight straight to Blackwood with the lions putting all the pressure on the Blackwood try line but Blackwood's defence held firm, this was also helped my Monmouth inability to finish try scoring opportunities.
Tries: Charlie Weldon,

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.

Following a very well attended and disciplined remembrance Sunday parade by the rugby club on the chippy, the U13,s (The Lions) turned their attention to the days match against Gwerneyfed. Due to so many home games, the Lions were given the honour of playing on the 1st team pitch, which is always a nice compromise.. Smiling face with smiling eyes.

Tough first half, Monmouth scored early in the half through a storming run by Jamie Strachen through the middle, Monmouth quickly took advantage and stormed through the Croesy defence putting the ball though the hands for Woody Shaw to touch down only for the try to be disallowed through an infringement. Croesy came back at Monmouth quickly and drove down the pitch, Monmouth then conceded a penalty on their own try line, which the visiting team took quickly and touched down.
Tries: Jamie Strachen, Jonathan Pearce, Charlie Weldon, Angus Whitehead
Conv: Charlie Weldon (2)
