1st Nov: Two penalty tries to one try gave the Joe’s the win today on Blackweir field. The Joe’s pack dominated the game and even the strong running Rock’s backs were not enough to break down the Joe’s defence. St. Joseph’s 20-14 St. Peter’s. The Cavaliers and Youth Development had better fortunes beating Sully Sports II (46-42) and Llandaff North (27-20).

28th October: Its’ a little bit of mixed news for our Pebbles at the Rocks. The Pebbles are our youngest and smallest rugby group. The good news is that, under the coaching of Claire Fahy and her team, the group of player numbers have increased to over sixty. Well done to the whole team of Pebbles parents and coaches. The downside of such Pebblic success however, is that the group is now, unfortunately, closed to new recruits.rd

27th October: Mixed cup fortunes for St. Peter’s this past weekend. The youth traveled to Abergavenny with a mixed team to play in the Youth Cup having had 18 players made unavailable due to work commitments and injuries. Abergavenny took an early 11-0 lead as the Youth ‘took stock’ of what they were facing, but once the travelling Rocks worked out the limited game plan they were up against moved the ball wide regularly, finishing the game 14-26. The senior teams didn’t fare quite as well with the First XV going down at home to Mountain Ash 13-29 and the Second lost to Bridgend Sports 21-35.

Just a quick thank you to you and St Peters for a great day today.
The club put on a great tournament, all teams and players were a credit to their respective clubs and to be honest I was personally very pleased to see St Peters in the final – a fantastic win for you v Penarth who are the district champions, your boys were a credit to St. Peter’s rugby club before and after the final whistle.
Please pass on our thanks to all at the Rocks who helped make it such a special day for our boys
Just to add to the letter off Derwyn. The boys where a credit to the club Sunday and played some brilliant rugby and the final was just one game to many but Cowbridge where the best side there on the day. Proud of all the u13s boys, parents and the coaching team thank you all. Dazza

27th September: The First XV travelled to Penarth today to play a League match originally scheduled for December 27, but as both teams had a bye in this week’s SWALEC Cup, the game was played today – Good thinking! Final Score: Penarth 0 – 62 St. Peter’s REPORT. Meanwhile the seconds came from 27 – 5 down to seal a narrow victory 62 (sixty two) – 27. Well done to the youth today who were able to put two quality teams out to play. The Youth First XV had an excellent win beating Cwmbran 27-5. The Youth Second XV were narrowly beaten 12-5 by Barry.

14th September: Rocks First XV travelled to Abercynon for their second league match of the season yesterday. Abercynon took the home advantage well with some excellent goal kicking through the first half to command a 23-10 lead before St. Peter’s woke up. The Rocks were down a number of key players for this game and it took a while for the new line up to put the patterns and calls together. Although the home side out-muscled St. Peter’s pack, the ball which we did get in the second half was well used by the determined back line. Ed Poynter’s, golden kicking boots kept the Rocks in the game, reducing the lead to three points with five minutes to go. The Rocks would not lie down and as Abercynon tired, St. Peter’s running backs finished off a hard fought win with another Lincoln Plummer try. Final Score 23-27. Rock on.
The Youth were beaten 12-24 by travelling Harpenden RFC Youth.
9th September: Rugby this coming weekend. First XV Away to Abercynon. Youth at home to the touring side, Harpenden Youth. Any other fixtures to follow.
6th September: Rocks Ring in the new season with a 37-5 win over last year’s league runners-up Wattstown. Leading 12-0 at half time, the Rocks delivered the bonus point on the stroke of 60 minutes as they ran the ball on all the right occasions. A brace of tries from new-comer Lincoln Plummer showed his blistering pace leaving his opposite number as just an observer to both tries. Also on the Harlequins today, the Youth Development team had a great start to the season beating Taffs Well Youth 17-12. Unfortunately, our travelling teams did not return with wins. The youth lost in the last few minutes of the game, 14-11 away to Merthyr and the Seconds (leading at half time) went down 24-8 to Barry II.
