Minis take centre stage


With no first team game the Old Illtydian Minis took centre stage this weekend. On Saturday evening our under 8s were the flag bearers at Cardiff Arms Park for the Blues v Glasgow match. They then took on Cefn Coed in a tag match at half time running out winners by 5 tries to 1, with Maddison (scoring with her very first touch) a hatrick from Joe and Riley (channelling Shane Williams with some great side stepping) our scorers. There was some fantastic tagging by the whole team as Cefn Coed actually had most of the ball but could only cross for one try – well done to all


On Sunday morning the mins then took on Fairwater at Moorland Park with under 7s to under 10s all playing our Cardiff rivals, with the under 9s also playing against Rumney in a RR fixture. Fairwater U8s had also played tag at CAP on Saturday night but both sides shook off the sleep to play some great rugby! Some great performances across all the age groups but special mention to Morgan O’Sullivan for the under 10s who bagged a hatrick


Our mini section is now one of the fastest growing in Cardiff so if you know anyone who with a child in school year one to five please let them know – the sessions are free so they are welcome to try – contact Andrew Maunder on 07977 763903 for more details
