Club Dinner and Presentation of Awards Night
It is 130 year celebration of St Peter’s RFC. The function will be a black tie event. It is on Saturday 18th June at the Angel Hotel Cardiff and we will be sitting down at 19:15 although most will be meeting around 18:00 for a drink in the Gate Keeper. The guest speaker for the evening is Phil Steele, from Scrum V, who promises to give a very entertaining outlook on the Welsh rugby scene. I have spoken to the Angel Hotel and managed to get an extension to the closing date, so I will need all names and your £30 in by June 10th at the latest, as they need to order the food and arrange seating plan etc. They WILL NOT accept any names after this date and you will not be able to just turn up on the night.
If you want to go let me know ASAP and you can transfer money across or I will arrange to pick it up so don’t delay book today on 07703057279!!!

Just a reminder
This Saturday, the 21st of May, we have a touring team at the Club. They are from my old club, London Welsh Amateurs. It’s a Vets/3rds standard game at best but everyone is welcome. Meet at 1.00pm and we’ll try to kick off about 2.00pm. Last senior game of the season, should be a nice weekend. If you don’t want to play come down for a beer anyway and we can call it an end of season party! The plan is to head into town later on.

31st January: First XV game postponed. Seconds go down to Rumney 11-3.
23rd January: Two narrow defeats today for the first and second XV. The seconds were unable to do the double over Barry II, having beaten them in the cup last week, and so lost today 12-5. Meanwhile the First XV travelled up to Dowlais (Top) and battled hard in the cold. The game started well for the home team overpowering our pack with three successive scrums which lead to a penalty try. A strong home forward pack dominated the Rocks taking the score quickly to 21 nil. The home team used the wind to good effect pinning the Rocks back in their own 22 for most of the first half. Whatever the team talk at half time certainly worked and the Rocks scored two good tries and added a penalty. One more try would have brought home the spoils, but it was not to be. Final score Dowlais 21-15 Rocks.
12th January: Rugby this coming weekend: Firsts – away to Pontyclun; Seconds – away to Barry; Thirds – home to Pentyrch. Fancy a run out? Contact Andrew Chandler.
9th January: Rocks 41-0 Treherbert. Considering the dreadful weather, the Rocks played some of the best rugby of the season so far. St. Peter’s started well with three killer tries in the first twenty minutes as the rain battered the Harlequins playing fields. The game itself kicked off a few minutes early as both teams agreed that a warm up was pointless if you were going to end up cold and wet!! Half time was probably one of the shortest ever too.
Treherbert started the second half strong with twenty minutes of pressure in the Rocks half, but strong tackling and cover defence kept the travelling Treherbert boys away from the red zone. Two final quick tries finished the game off to take the bonus point win. And… on the stroke of the final whistle – the rain stopped. Well done Rocks and thanks to the Treherbert players, spectators and committee for a fulfilled fixture.
8th January: Unfortunately, the second team game is off tomorrow – Firsts still on!
6th January 2016: Let’s hope the weather allows for some Rugby this weekend. First XV at home to Treherbert; Second XV also at home to Clwb Rygbi II.
