After a period of six weeks, St. Peter’s RFC are delighted to note that the site is back. Many thanks to RCT Hosting in their assistance. During the next few months the site will be recreated to its former glory, until then…
Well done to the Rocks First XV yesterday who beat Abercynon 20-8 on the Harlequins. Other news to follow.
25th October: Fixtures this coming Saturday second team at home to Llanishen. The first team is away at Ystradgynlais in the cup. The bus leaves at midday. All support for both teams are welcome.
24th September: How many rugby clubs in Wales can say that they fielded three Senior teams and a Youth side today? Don’t Google it! the answer is ‘one – The Rocks’
Well done to all the players of the teams today and well done to all those who helped to put those teams on the park. As you would expect, there were mixed fortunes across the teams as the seconds and thirds lost narrowly to Rumney and the Old Illts respectively, but well done to the Youth who beat Blackwood 50-3 in the first Round of the Youth Cup.
The First XV travelled across the city to a First v Third top of the table clash against Llanishen. The home team had a clear desire to run the ball as much as possible, but the travelling Rocks were Solid in all aspects of the game. Cover tackles and cover defence left every player out on their feet at the end of the game, but unlike in the past, the Rocks did not relinquish their lead in the last ten minutes. In fact the last play of the game saw a foot race (is there any other type) to the try line to win the game 22-12.
Great Game. Great Result.
