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. Good effort lads.

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.
