Review of the tour.
Monmouth Lions went on tour this weekend to the Leicester Tigers rugby festival in Butlins Minehead for the first time with kids and coaches looking forward to testing their skills against all other teams across the UK and Ireland. The lions packed their bags and with only 12 players (so no subs) knew they would be facing a hard weekend set about their challenge to go against other clubs who brought 20+ players.
The first game saw the Lions play the Irish - Lisburn RFC 2's.
On a bright windy Sunday morning the Lions visited Caldicot in an earlier than normal kick off at the request of the home team. Earlier in the week, Caldicot had contacted us explaining they had low numbers and asked if they could borrow some if we had enough.
Was this a 'bluff' or were they struggling?.....
Tries from : Lewis, Morgan, Angus (2), Dylan, Oli Scrivens, Robbie, Harry Johnson (2), Ben, (Nearly Zav - good tackle oli)
On Sunday 2nd March the Lions entertained Ross-on-Wye in what was a much needed, long over due match. Due to recent floods on the pitch there had been no rugby so everyone was eager to get back to it. Some of the parents came along early and the pitch was soon clear of debris from the recent storm.
Ross turned up with a disappointing 5 players. However, rather than cancel the game it was decided to lend them 5 players each half and both sides could get some much needed game time.
Another game in the wet and muddy Weather that we seem to expect now over on Chippy park and this visitors were Bromyard who thankfully agreed to come to our place due to their pitches being worse than ours..
On a wet and windy Sunday morning, Monmouth U11s put together one of their best performances to date in beating Newbridge by ten tries to nil. Coach Tony Richards said it was the best he had seen his team play with ALL eighteen players contributing well.
Monmouth Under 11s entertained local rivals Ross on Sunday 12th January. Both teams were grateful to Monmouth Comprehensive School for allowing the use of their pitches as the Chippenhamgate fields were still waterlogged.
It was typical weather for a Monmouth away match at Gwernyfed – cold, wet and windy. However, the Monmouth U11 Lions arrived with a determined 12 players on Sunday 15th December. The Gwernyfed cockerels have often proved difficult for the Monmouth U11s and despite having beaten them at their home ground previously there was still an element of nervousness in the air.
Gwernyfed had 8 players so with Monmouth lending 2 players in each half an equal game of 10-a-side began.
St Julians beat Monmouth U11 Lions by nine tries to nil.
