14th April: The feel-good factor was high at the Rocks yesterday with three games played and three games won with over 130 points scored and only 21 conceded. Tidy like.
The day started yesterday a little too early for touring side Worthing Youth – who according to their coaches peaked at about three O’Clock Saturday morning in St. Mary St. The Worthing Youth took in the sights, sounds and stellas to the max Friday night and it is possible that the 11am kick off was a day or two too early for them. All credit to a great bunch of lads who played and stuck to the game as best as their hung-over bodies would allow. Rocks youth the victors 50 – 0.
The First team travelled to a wet and windy Cardiff Harlequins who had put 57 points on Porth last weekend and were not to be taken lightly. Impressive commitment, following our own win last weekend, from the Rocks resulted in a bonus point 5 tries before the break in ‘orrible conditions. A little too much enthusiasm in the second half to cross the whitewash resulted in far too many handling errors and only one more try. Rocks 36 – 10 Cardiff Quinns. MATCH REPORT BYJD
In similar conditions the Two Gang entertained Llanishen on the Harlequins and combined enthusiasm with skill and fitness to score over 50 points. Unless mistaken this puts Two Gang top in their league after beating with a BP. David Dyson Price was MoM with 2 tries. Rocks II 53-11 Llanishen.
Good luck once again to James Morris representing Malta tomorrow against Holland.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ROCKS UNDER 12s who are through to the Semi-Final of the Blues Cup. Let’s all turn out to support the boys against Llandaff next Sunday (14th April) at the Harlequins – Kick off 12. noon.
6th April: St. Peter’s played their game of the season so far at the Harlequins today, beating Pontyclun, who were six points ahead of the Rocks in second place, by 32-8. The Rocks made their intentions clear in the first 10 minutes forcing their way over from short distance with a strong forward surge. The score was doubled soon after when Scrum Half Lewis Dawes took the opportunity of a quick tap penalty and demonstrated twinkle-toe footwork to dance between the Pontyclun defence and launch and outstretched arm to score. Second half tries by Matt Arnold and Josh Kelly sealed the bonus point win. Well done also to Pontyclun who ran everything back at St. Peter’s and were rewarded with a late try. Photos by Kevin and some taken with a proper camera by Carl.
The bonus point game has brought St. Peter’s within one point of Pontyclun who remain in second position both with five games to go.
The Two Gang went down to Rhiwbina II 20-21, the Cavs lost to Rhiwbina 21-51 and the Youth lost to Glamorgan Wanderers 3-18
Second XV East District Semi Finalists!!
Wednesday 17th April ko 6.15 at Llandaff North
Pontyclun RFC v Rumney RFC Pitch 1
Cardiff Met v St Peter’s
Sign the Petition if you… Condemn Cardiff Council’s decision to dramatically increase pitch and changing-room fees and believe that rises of 45% for football, 74% for baseball, 97% for rugby and 146% for cricket would be detrimental to sports participation levels across the Welsh capital.
