U8

U8 v Cwmbran (Home) 01 Dec 2013

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.

U8 v Hereford (Away) 24 Nov 2013

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

U8 v St. Julians (Away) 17 Nov 2013

3 V 4 – Monmouth Win

3 v 2 – Monmouth Lost

4 v 4 – Draw

Cold and damp morning and St Julian’s only had 9 players. Close game first with a win for Monmouth. Second game saw Monmouth lose in the last seconds of the game with only 5 players left on the pitch with 3 off injured (don’t you just love tag rugby!)

Last game saw Monmouth score a try in the last minute to clinch a well- deserved draw.

The St Julians coach was very impressed with our turn out for an away game. Well done to the 25 boys and parents who made the trip – Thank you.

U8 v Pontypool (Home) 03 Nov 2013

This weekend saw the sunshine returning to Chippenham Fields with most teams playing at home. The Griffins – Monmouths U8’s were delighted to welcome Abergavenny and Pontypool.

The Griffins had a great turnout as usual, despite it being half term. The Griffins had 18 boys from their squad of 27 available so put out two strong sides which made for a really enjoyable morning of rugby for all with all the players getting a few games.

U8 v Berry Hill (Away) 20 Oct 2013

Well what a lovely day on Sunday, after a bit of jigging around Berry Hill and Cinderford managed to put out 2 teams, 1 Berry Hill and one combined as Cinderford didn’t have too many players, which meant all our boys got a game. The pitches were in good nick at Berry Hill which made for some great rugby.
