[u8] Wednesday squad note (early)

Morning All,

Great conditions for playing rugby last Sunday, thanks for the 23 boys that made it to play St Julian’s. We mixed the teams up again this week and all 3 were filled with exciting end to end rugby and as expected the games did get a little physical at times, roll on contact! The games end 4 v 5, 3 v 3 and 2 v 2. Congratulations to those boys that managed to play rugby and make it to their Karate grading and well done to those boys who tried to move their grading to play rugby! But couldn’t do both because of timings.

2 wins 1 loss

6 v 4, 5 v 1 & 4 v 5

U8 v Bromyard (Home) 02 Feb 2014

U8 v tbc (Home) 26 Jan 2014


U8 v Gwernyfed (Away) 15 Dec 2013

Griffins visited a cold and wet Gwernyfed on Sunday morning with 14 boys. As it happened Gwernyfed had exactly 14 boys so we both ran out two teams making sure the boys had plenty of game time with 2 games each.

A really good day for the Griffins with 3 wins and a loss. The wins came from fantastic defence. The loss came from the weaker Monmouth side against a rejigged Gwernyfed side which contained all their best players in the last game to ensure a win. By this time the Monmouth team were cold and wet from standing around since their initial win.

Monmouth wins:
2 V 5
1 V 7
3 V 6

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.
