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.
02nd 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.
