Mini and Junior Weekly Round Up 08.10.17

It was a mix of the Llynfi Valley and Gwent for the Mini and Junior teams this week with the mini sides hosting the Llynfi Valley sides whilst the Junior teams were mainly involved with games against Gwent sides, except for the Under Sixteens who hosted Gilfach Goch.

The Under Sevens welcomed Cwmafan and Maesteg Celtic to Newbridge Fields. The Sports played their usual brand of high action rugby as they played Cwmafan in their first in a game. The game produced eleven tries with the Sports narrowly outscoring their opponents by six tries to five.  Aled Rees and Ollie Balmer carved out a few between them. Rhodri Griffiths, Gethin Roberts and Archie Hall added the remainder.  Maesteg Celtic scored 5 tries to the Bridgend Sports 4 in the second game. Sports tries were scored by Ollie Balmer Aled Rees, Rhodri Griffiths and Archie Hall. The morning saw some great tagging and support from Seb Stowe, Matthew Griffiths, Mikey Heanue, Ellis Luke, Ellis Kendall and Leo Dadsmo. Rugby was the winner as all players had the opportunity to play and did so with a smile of their faces. 

The Under Eights also played a round robin against the same clubs. Their squad of nineteen players all shone and were amazing showing excellent running and maximum effort.  Ben Williams was player of the week. Tries were scored by Dan Perriman (2), Rhys Evans, Ben Williams (2) Rhodri Owen (1) and Max Hearing (1). Both games ended in a tie. Maesteg Celtic 3 Bridgend Sports 3 Cwmafan 5 Bridgend Sports 5.

The Under Nines played Maesteg Quins and then Tondu. Maesteg Quins running in eight tries to the Sports five in the first game.  Bridgend Sports try scorers were Leo Giroud (2) Liam Sales, Gethin Evans and Stan Mcevoy.  The team put in some great tackles and passed the ball well but they were a little unlucky. In the second game against Tondu, the Sports shared players in the traditional spirt of the game. Try scorers for the sports were Osian Stephens, Reuben Williams, Leo Giroud, Hari Coulthard (2) Gethin Evans, and Gruff Lewis (2). Their contribution enabled the Sports to run out winners by 8 tries to 5. All the players played well and enjoyed their rugby. Emphasis will be placed on defence in training this week as everything else is coming together nicely. The star performer this week was Gruff Lewis.

The Under Tens also shared their players with Maesteg Celtic and played three, ten-minute periods. The Sports players showed great attitude to produce an exceptional performance to run out winners. All players tackled, rucked and passed well. The tries were all finished via good team work. The Sports man of the match was Charlie Paget due to his try scoring, good hard tackles, fantastic rucking and playing for the team.

 The Under Elevens also defeated Maesteg Celtic 38 – 7. This was a more physical encounter against a hard-Celtic side who tackled well. The Sports started slowly but grew into the game. They played some good rugby at times with some well taken tries.

 The Under Thirteens travelled to Crumlin for a Friday night game. It was a great experience for the side playing under floodlights which they enjoyed immensely and emerged from the experience with a victory.


 The under Fifteens continue to defy the odds each week with their never say die attitude, they hosted Croesyceiliog at home and registered a 42 – 15 victory. Tries were scored by Rhys Williams (2), Mason and Curtis Lewis (2) and Dafydd. They also landed six out of six conversions. New players are very welcome to come and join our Under Fifteens. Why not come along and meet new friends and experience the great team spirt each week.

 Finally, the Under Sixteens hosted a battling Gilfach Goch team in an extremely competitive match. Gilfach pipped the home team by one try to take the game 24-31.
