Firsts Away to Cilfynydd
Seconds Home to St. Joseph’s II


19th Sept: A great win for the Rocks over First Division Llanharan in the Mallet Cup this evening. The Rocks scored five tries to win the game 36-15. There was much debate on the Whattsapp group following the game, but eventually the tries were awarded to Tim Carless, Mike Baldwin, Darren Sage (2), Snooky and Eugene O’Brien or Donkey (not sure). 


20170916-Table16th Sept: A good day at the office!! Cambrian Welfare came to the Harlequins following a 56 – 0 demolition of Cilfynnydd. St.Peter’s first XV have been training well mid-week and brought a positive attitude to the ground today which certainly helped. The game was fairly evenly matched throughout with the final ten minutes deciding the encounter. A try a-piece in this period made the score really tight and with St. Peter’s reduced to 13 men, Cambrian Welfare threw the kitchen sink at the Rocks in the final play. Solid tackling and a good display of fitness forced the final mistake, when CW threw a pass which went directly in touch. Well done to both teams but 18 – 16 gave St.Peter’s the spoils and upward movement in the table to third place, but a bonus point to the Welfare.
Well done also to two gang beating Rhiwbina III 10 – 31. The Youth unfortunately went down 36-14 to Mountain Ash.

11th September: 

CRCC 170909

The Rocks agreed to a rearranged fixture this weekend as CRCC were not able to use Llandaff Fields. So with the fixture reversed, we are very pleased to say that the home team came out on top. Rocks 34-7 CRCC. And a message from Butetown – Well done 2 gang …awesome display against Cardiff Quins winning 34-5 would have been more apart from a couple of dodgy drop goal attempts !!

Next Saturday it’s fourth place Rocks entertaining recently promoted-fifth place Cambrian Welfare at the Harlequins.

 


10th September: Well it’s not often that I come up with a reason or an excuse for not keeping this site up to date, but this one is a good ‘un. I’ve had other things on my mind!! Or to be more specific… I’ve been dodging Earthquakes and Hurricanes. Last week I was in Mexico and the day I left there was an 8.2 Earthquake, I then went to Florida and the I left there was Category 5 Hurricane. In short, after leaving Mexico and Florida – there wasn’t much left. Sorry. Perhaps I’ll stay home for a few weeks! And THAT is why there haven’t been any updates.


26th August: Great win over Maesteg celtic on sardis road last night. After two relatively easy international wins over stow on the wold, it was a good test for the Rocks to play division two West Central mid table finishers for last season.
Winning 40-7 on the artificial surface in Pontypridd, Kris Barry noted on social media last night “we played for each other love you rocks xxxx” 

25th August: Rugby tonight at Pontypridd’s Sardis Rd. Maesteg Celtic v Rocks 7.15pm then… At last the season begins! Next week, our first home game on the Harlequins – Cardiff Quinns at 2.30pm followed by the club social – see below. Then on 9th September we travel away to Llandaff Fields to face CRCC – again a 2.30pm kick off. 

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.”


25th July: Club Social – 2nd September 2017.

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.
