U13 v Newent (home) 17 Apr 2016

41-21 Win

Twenty-thre lads turned out for Monmouth on a beautiful morning in the Chippie, the visitors came with 12 players – Morgan, Ewan, Woody and Jonny Dunkley started for Newent, they were swapped over as the game progressed with Lewis, Jamie, Ellis, Angus (who also scored for Newent). The rest of the team were rotated within the Monmouth group ensuring they all got game time.

Monmouth started well building up with some excellent deep running from the backs, the try came as Charlie put in a cross kick to his L/h winger Angus who timed his run perfectly, catching the ball and sprinted to the line for the first of the Monmouth tries – Angus also scored for Newent later in the match.

The lads continued in the same manner, working as a team winning the ball on the ground then moving it around with confidence – the scrummaging & lineouts were excellent as was the rucking.

The team was swapped around almost constantly by the coaches with some players put out of their normal positions – they all got on with it and gave an excellent showing

Game targets for each of the players was passing to accurately to hand and using depth when attacking – they all worked on this and completed the tasks as required, with only a couple of misdemeanours being noted (for the tour!)

Well done lads, looking forward to the tour and tournaments!.
