U9 v Ledbury (Away) 06 Apr 2014

40-5 Win

With Caerleon unable to honour this weekend’s fixture the Sharks had to cross over the border to England to play a hastily arranged match against Ledbury – thanks to Brian Nixon for arranging this through his Welsh Taffia contacts! Also huge thanks to Ledbury for splitting their squad between us and Berryhill on the day.

With the Sharks undefeated this season outside of tournaments it was no surprise that we travelled with a large squad which enabled the volunteer coaches to try out some new tactics on the day.

Tries: William Freeman (4), Mattie Cotton (3), George Rowlands

U9 v Bromyard (Home) 02 Feb 2014

50-10 Win

Sharks Continue their winning streak

An almost dry morning saw the Sharks host Bromyard at home as their pitches were unplayable. Underfoot was more than soggy yet safe and the Sharks were desperate to play some rugby after recent cancellations due to inclement conditions.

Dennis and Callum made up the numbers for a depleted Bromyard team when required during the match.

Tries: Mattie Cotton (3), Dominic Clayton (2), Jack Buckner, George Rowlands, Oscar Battersby, Cornelius Madler & Mikey Nixon

U9 v Ross (Home) 12 Jan 2014

50-0 Win

Sharks Continue To Show No Mercy

On what must have been the first dry morning of the year the Sharks entertained Ross on Wye on the Comprehensive pitches as their home turf was both flooded and frozen!

After a 3 week lay off over the festive period an intense warming up session from the coaches saw the Sharks straight back on the winning trail.

Once again their tenacious tackling was the foundation of a watertight defence and even the players loaned to the opposition were unable to break through despite their inside knowledge of the teams tactics!

Tries: Mattie Cotton (3), Barney Thomas Hewartson, Jack Buckner, George Rowlands, Oscar Battersby, Cornelius Madler, Tom Coates

U9 v Gwernyfed (Away) 15 Dec 2013

Sharks Victorious Once Again

An extremely wet and windy Sunday morning saw the Sharks make their annual pilgrimage to Powys to play Gwernyfed.

Two games were played and in both the Sharks played with absolute determination and put up an awesome defensive line with every player digging deep to hold back wave after wave of attack from Gwernyfed. No matter what was thrown at them the Sharks stood firm and Gwernyfed finally blew the whistle after nearly an hour and a half of play conceding victory to the better side on the day.

Tries: Mattie Cotton (3), Mikey Nixon (3), Finlay Robertson
