Once a Rock – Always a Rock!

Calling all past players / coaches / wives / supporters – come down to the Harlequins on the 2nd of September to watch the boys play their first game of the season, where we will then head into the club house for entertainment including a raffle and karaoke. All proceeds will be going to our chosen charity – Oliver’s Journey.

For more information and for those wanting to give an extra donation, the link is on the flyer. Please spread the word and let’s make it a day to remember! — at St Peters RFC.

 

16th August: With regret, Frank Callaghan who played for St. Peter’s, in the late 1940’s and the 1950’s in the centre, passed away recently. His funeral is at Christ the King 10.00am on Thursday 31st August. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.

13th August: It was a good start to the season yesterday at Stow on the Wold for the first of the back to back preseason games. The final score seems to be a bit of a mystery at the moment, but suffice to say that the Rocks scored quite a few points.

St. Peter’s will be hosting Stow-on-the-Wold next Saturday at the Harlequins 2.30pm kick off.

Stow-on-the-Wold


28th July: St. Peter’s RFC are pleased to welcome Steve Facey to the coaching team at the club.

Steve Facey

Steve Facey

Steve began his Junior Rugby at St Alban’s, where he found his position at Loose Head Prop Forward. He joined St Peter’s RFC as a player when Steve Matthews was Captain and they won the League Title in his first year. He later moved to Llantrisant and then entered UWIC (Now Cardiff Met) as a mature student. He completed a Degree in Sport and Physical Education and went on to complete a Masters in Education. He captained UWIC in their 2006-07 Season and won coveted accolades when he was voted both Players’ Player and Player of the Year in the same season. He has coached ‘The Freshers’ at UWIC, Llandaff RFC, Rumney RFC and Cardiff & District RFC.

St Peter’s Head Coach, Mark Ring stated, “I am absolutely delighted Steve has decide to join me at St Peter’s RFC as my Co-Coach. We share equal responsibilities with Steve (specifically) overseeing the forwards, contact area and defence. He has wonderful character traits such as honesty and integrity, so he is a person who I can trust implicitly. He lives a few hundred metres from the rugby club and as a former player, his enthusiasm and positive th attitude, I believe, will impact on the senior squad. He is someone I’ve worked with at Cardiff & District RFC where he was immensely popular. I am really looking forward to working with him.”

Great day and night at the club yesterday good to see everyone enjoying themselves and getting involved. Think coach Matt Lloyd said it all… we have a great club with set up that other clubs would die for. We have talented senior players that would stand toe to toe with any and a youth, junior and mini section that is one of the largest in Wales to keep the players coming. Let’s build on what we’ve got, welcome new players in, build up our strength in depth, make the club a place that people want to come to, stay, get drunk, sing and laugh and go home happy – before doing it all again the next week!! <<PHOTOS>>

5th May: Rugby Tomorrow against touring side Evesham. 1.30pm kick off.

18th April: The final First XV game of the season was a close loss 34-33 away at Penarth. The Rocks are currently in 3rd place however Barry in 4th are 4 points behind with 2 games left to play.

The Youth have a game against Cowbridge this Saturday 29th April in the semi final of the CV district youth cup at Rumney ko 2.30. It would be great if the Youth could have some support.

17th April: Unfortunately the last home game of the season for the First XV resulted in a loss by 24-36 to CR Cymry Caerdydd. The final fixture is this coming Saturday away at Penarth. 

14th April: The only fixture this weekend is the First XVs final home game of the season on Saturday against Clwb Rygbi Cymry Caerdydd. 

9th April: Mixed fortunes for the Rocks today. The youth had a good win over Aberdare 27-24, but the First XV went down to Ponyclun 32-11.

02041702nd April: A game of two halves at the Harlequins against Aberdare yesterday, where the Rocks eventually held onto an early lead to win the tie 20-17. St. Peter’s took an early lead with three tries and the bonus point looked to be in the bag. Unfortunately, Aberdare had other ideas scoring a brace of three tries themselves in the second half. Both teams seemed intent on running rather than taking the three points all afternoon making it a typical end of season tie. Meanwhile, the seconds lost to St. Joseph’s 7-10.

30th March: Fixtures this coming Saturday are the First XV at home to 4th place Aberdare with the Second XV also at home to St Joes. We are getting to the business end of the season so the teams need all your support.

25th March: What a game!! After trailing 17 -3 early in the second half, the lead then bobbled back and forth between Llantrisant and the travelling Rocks. To beat top of the table Llantrisant 37-38, on their own patch today was a well deserved result following the hard work the whole club has put in during the past few months. Well done lads. The Seconds and Youth lost to Llanishen, 36-24 and Aberdare 19-22 respectively.

Report by Andrew Chandler:
A truly sensational comeback by ‎ the Rocks away at Llantrisant. 
The Rocks were 3 tries to nil down in the first 20 minutes and staring another guaranteed season in 2 East Central. A great forwards try from the Rocks was only to be considered as purely consolation until Lincoln Plummer broke through and with the conversion that followed, it was 17-17.
The lead changed hands on several occasions with further tries from Dan Jenkins, Tom Mably and the last and most decisive of  tries from Johnny Taylor, scoring in the last 2 minutes to complete ‎a 38-37 win.
It will live long in the memory.

23rd March: Rugby this weekend. First Team away to Llantrisant; Seconds at home to Llanishen. The Youth are also at home entertaining Aberdare Youth. Let’s get out and support the club.


19th March: The committee, members and friends of St. Peter’s RFC, would like to send their sincere condolences to the family of Sue Baldwin, who passed away last week, on Friday 10th March. Her funeral will be held at St. Peter’s Catholic Church on Thursday 30th  March at 9am, the crematorium at 10:15 then afterwards at St. Peter’s Rugby Club. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mike and family at this time.

14th March: A bonus point win for the First XV away on Saturday to Abercynon keeps us in 3rd place in the league. There were tries from Ed Dobbs, Jack Cook, Luke O’Brien and Johnny Taylor. Ed Poynter kicked 2 pens and 3 conversions. Unfortunately both the second and youth games were postponed.
