Very little comment as their attack was excellent and our defence was lacking!
The most exciting times were the first 5 mins. when FOUR players (2 from each side) were sent to the Sin Bin,
but despite intense pressure we could only score a Penalty, and the final five minutes when our strong forward play
was rewarded with a try.
Hard luck lads but, quite honestly, their backs were to good for us.

This game, against a touring team from Suffolk, proved the depth of talent in our squad as, without a few regulars, the teamwork was OUTSTANDING!
The Pack, gave their usual solid performance, with Sam, Sean and Adam leading the way. The Backs, ably marshalled by Dylan, ran them ragged.
We even managed to score two tries when Adam was sent to the Sin Bin. Well Played lads, YOU DONE GREAT!

Sunday 6th April saw The Llandaff North Hornets welcomed at Llanishen Park to take on the Llanishen U8s (apparently). There is clearly something in the water in Llanishen and many of our spectators (jokingly) called to see player’s identity cards as possibly the largest U8’s side in the league took to the field. However our plucky nine weren’t intimidated and were keen to play some exciting rugby on this cold, damp morning.
Captain for the day Ed Maguire had obviously put on his running boots for the day making his presence felt all over the pitch. Impressively Ed could be seen chasing down players right to the bitter end, never giving up on the chance to grab that tag! This is something Coach Dominic Scoble is infamous for (tackling not tagging though), and I’m sure Ed notched up plenty of brownie points from his Coach for this show of steely determination!

Thanks to all for a great tour, to the boys for beating the ‘All Blacks’ and running the Mad ‘King of Pembrokeshire’ to within a point in the best game of rugby we’ve seen all year. A special thanks to Neyland RFC, new friends and great hosts, welcome at ‘the North’ any time!
To Archie for getting ‘offside’ with the lifeguard, and top cheeky chappie awards to Ben Yarwood and Joey Lubienski for climbing the outdoor flume at Bluestone the wrong way without getting noticed or ‘cleared out’ by the oncoming human taffic.
A special thanks to the ‘Bunkhouse’ dads, (still catching up on sleep) and the top dad award to Simon Griffin for laughing off the nonsense coming from the ‘Last King of Pembrokeshire’…
A great tour, one and all…
Hard luck lads.— You played better than this score indicates as most of their tries were long-distance arising from our errors when attacking.
But It must be said, they were much quicker to any loose balls.
I am aware that Rumney is one of your ‘Bogey teams’ but you must “THINK AS WINNERS ” and not let your heads drop if they score. YOU CAN BEAT THEM!
