25th January: The First XV played a game of very different halves on the Harlequins yesterday – leading 24-0 at the break, but needing to defend a determined Abercynon for much of the second half. The final score of 34-26 was well deserved for both teams, who each left the field with a bonus point. The seconds man of the match – The Mercurial Mullane – successfully converted all seven of the Rocks tries who finished the afternoon with a 42-14 victory over Cardiff Harlequins II. Meanwhile, the Youth travelled to Aberdare where a last minute score for the home team meant a narrow defeat of 19-17.
Monies for the above trip should be paid to Baldy as soon as possible. The trip has been paid for and now the monies need to be sent to Baldy as soon as possible. You know how much you owe - let’s get it done. We also need to send to Mike quickly – name, DoB and passport numbers (ideally a photocopy or scan of your passport would be ideal). Allez!!
