Top team yesterday for the Rocks was the outstanding performance from the Youth playing Cowbridge at home. Faced with a 0-17 drubbing in the first half the Youth boys gave themselves a good talking to at half time and scored 19 unanswered points in the second half. Final score 19-17: Well done lads.
A number of the Youth players also stepped up to First and Second team senior rugby giving an excellent account of themselves. Youth players in the seconds were reported as ‘genuine class’. Unfortunately the two gang went down to a tenacious Barry IIs 22-27. Well done also to St Peters youth players Elliot Regan, Jack Hoskins, Matt Courfield & Ed Poynter on their First XV debuts today – great effort lads – the future is bright! Sadly the First XV also went down to Fairwater 17-12.

2nd November: On a day when the rain was so bad that even Noah would have refused to build a boat without an umbrella, the First XV travelled up the valley to Aberdare. The pitch at Aberdare RFC is normally the host for a feast of running rugby, but not today. The rain came in sideways from every direction preventing any sort of entertaining game at all. The Rocks stuck to the challenge into the wind at first half and ended the first forty bouyant, with no score to either side. The second half proved to lack as much entertainment as the first with a rare highlight from Tom O’Brien with a show and go from scrum half rarely seen. The thirty or so yards made set up a maul from which the Aberdare tried to clear, but was superbly charged down by Rhys Meredith who followed up his own work for the only score of the game. Well done Rhys. Well done Rocks. Wet, cold, but not defeated!
St. Joseph’s travelled to the Harlequins for today’s second team fixture originally planned for Blackweir. A strong performance followed the Joes from Heath taking home a 10-53 victory.
|2nd November 2013
The performance of the day for the Rocks came on the Harlequins main pitch where the Youth XV entertained Pontypridd RFC Youth. The Youth were not at full strength today containing a number of the younger squad members, but these younger boys played out of their skin!!! The final score showed a 17-13 success for the Rocks Youth, but more than one of the coaches reported that more clinical finishing could have increased the score by more. This is exceptionally encouraging for a young side demonstrating so much potential – well done boys.
1st November: Games this weekend. First XV: Aberdare (A), Second XV: St. Joseph’s II (A), Third XV: Cardiff Saracens II (A), Youth XV: Pontypridd (H), Youth Development XV: Whitchurch (A).
30th October: Team to play against Aberdare on Saturday <here>
- Nolan’s November Verbals
- Player Profiles 2013-14 updated.
- Defeats across the board yesterday. First XV lost to Brecon 29-0 in the SWALEC Plate, Second XV lost to St. Albans 24-37 in the Mallet Cup. The Youth Development played an excellent game at Llanishen losing 18-8, however Ringo, Vince and the other coaches were really pleased with the boys who played yesterday. With only ten minutes to go the score was lying at 8-8. The away cup game would have been ours. Two late tries by Llanishen took the result. Well done to all the youth boys.
Many congratulations to the following Youth Players who have been selected for Cardiff District Team to play against Aberavon Quins at Cardiff Arms Park on the 30th October, 7.30pm Kick Off. Jack Harwood, Luke Thomas, Alex Lloyd, Jack Beere, Ryan Farrah, Jack Hoskins. (6/26)
