1XV v New Tredegar (home) 21 Jan 2017

60-5 Win

Nine Try Bonanza For Monmouth

Having failed to crack Amman Utd. away the week before in Cup rugby, in far better playing conditions at the Sports Ground last Saturday, Monmouth again displayed their improving team-work and confidence to beat visitors, New Tredegar, by nine tries to one and gain a try scoring bonus point at the same time.

Numerous individuals stood out but pre-eminent amongst them was captain and flanker Tom Rees who seemed to be everywhere in defence or attack, assisting unselfishly in the scoring of many tries as well as landing two of his own.

Tries: D.Hellard, Smith, L.Goddard, T.Green (2), T.Rees (2), S.Parsons, K.Mobbs-Morgan
Conv: P.Emanuelli (6)

Tries: T.Hawkins
Conv: S.Parsons

1XV v RTB Ebbw Vale (home) 07 Jan 2017

10-7 Win

A Tense Finish for Monmouth

In a game that Monmouth dominated territorially against RTB Ebbw Vale last Saturday, tensions still abounded at the very end as Monmouth struggled to break the local defences and their opponents defended valiantly, looking to counter-attack to steal victory whenever they regained control of the ball.

Tries: Smith

1XV v Usk (home) 26 Dec 2016

27-7 Win

Sweet Revenge for Monmouth

With the still raw memories of last year's drubbing at Usk and with The Druids having lost 11-10 this last Boxing Day morning, Monmouth's 1st XV needed little encouragement before a record crowd of around 1000. And as is there current style they set about their task with vigour beneath clear blue skies, sensibly playing with the bright sun behind their backs before it could become a possible hindrance in the second half.

Tries: D.White (2), S.Parsons
Conv: S.Parsons (3)
Pen: S.Parsons (2)

1XV v Oakdale (home) 17 Dec 2016

24-5 Win

Monmouth Take Table-toppers apart

Table topping Oakdale visited Monmouth full of confidence last Saturday, but Monmouth used their new found confidence and, playing as a team, sent them back to the Valleys with their tails between their legs.

Tries: A.Nuove, G.Morgan
Conv: P.Emanuelli
Pen: P.Emanuelli (3), S.Parsons

1XV v Lantwit Major (home) 10 Dec 2016

12-10 Win

Cup Progress for Monmouth

Murky though the weather was, with increasingly poor visibility due to rain and the steam generated from soaking jerseys, the large crowd at last Saturday's cup match were kept entertained right until the final whistle as Monmouth held on tenaciously to a 12-10 lead to progress to the next stage in the National Bowl competition.

Tries: T.Green, D.White
Conv: P.Emanuelli

1XV v Newport HSOB (home) 03 Dec 2016

24-5 Win

Well earned Four Try Win For Monmouth

Tries: D.White, J.Smith, P.Emanuelli, Monmouth
Conv: P.Emanuelli (2)

1XV v Hartridge (home) 26 Nov 2016

8-16 Loss

Monmouth Shaded by a Better Team

Monmouth travelled away to Hartridge last Saturday with a team specifically chosen to face up to their dominant pack and that, apart from the first scrum, is what they did with each pack thereafter giving as good as they took.


1XV v Fleur De Lys (home) 12 Nov 2016

15-5 Win

Monmouth Improve and Win

As a prelude to the weekend's Internationals, Monmouth journeyed to Fleur de Lys, a side whom they have not played for many a year. On a wide, rather wet, pitch initially bathed in Autumn sunshine, Monmouth kicked off and quickly put the home team on the back foot with scrum half White capitalising on possession with a smart break to run in over 25 metres, providing Emanuelli with an easy conversion.

Tries: D.White, James
Conv: P.Emanuelli
Pen: P.Emanuelli

1XV v Cwmcarn (home) 29 Oct 2016

64-7 Win

Monmouth Advance in Cup

Monmouth advanced to the 4th round of the SWALEC Bowl at the expense of Cwmcarn United last Saturday on Chippenham in a 10 try spree.

Restored to near full strength, Monmouth were soon on the score-board when their full back Goddard ran a relieving kick back, eluding many tacklers before linking with centre Ellard who scored in the right corner, but too far out on this occasion to convert.

Tries: L.Goddard, Ellard (2), L.Hunter, A.Nove (2), K.Mobbs-Morgan, P.Emanuelli (2), D.White
Conv: P.Emanuelli (6)
