October round up

Not as much rugby as we hoped this month, with one of the wettest Octobers in memory playing havoc with pitches and subsequently matches for all our teams. 

Only 2 first team games survived, a hard fought 14-12 win away at Pentyrch and a disappointing 24-23 defeat at home to Clwb Rygbi, who played the wet conditions much better on the day.

Our second team managed to get their first game of the season, with a mix of veterans and youth battling to a 26-22 win away at St Albans in a great game of rugby.

A similar story for our youth, with only 2 games surviving the weather. An agonising 16-15 defeat at home to Llantwit Major and a tough away game at Llandaff.The boys continue to improve and are showing  really good attitude.

The minis fixtures also took a hammering, with a couple of games surviving for the older ages away at Penarth and at home to Llandaff North, and just one for the younger ages away at Caerau for a RR with Rumney. 

Off the field there have been some really positive developments, with the unveiling of our new scoreboard at Moorland Park. A huge thank you to Dragon Taxis and Fordthorne Cardiff for sponsoring,the scoreboard looks great!

Our RWC mini recruitment drive was a great success, with 12 new players recruited during the tournament - a big thank you to all of the parents who helped bring new players along and to Llyr at Eastern High School who has been a tremndous help recruiting year 7 players for our u12s. The prize draw for the Barbarians tickets will take place this week. We are still recruiting boys and girls for school years ages 1-7 so get in touch if you have a child interested in trying rugby

Looking at the month ahead, a tough run of games for the first team with Pontyclun, Canton and Tylorstown to play - the youth have 2 home games scheduled with the 2nd round of the Swalec Bowl and a league game against Llanharan, and a full month of minis fixtures. Lets hope for kinder weather and come on the Illts!
