Mini Rugby Weekly Round Up

It was a full Sunday morning of rugby, as usual for Bridgend Sports as they fielded sides from Under Sevens all the way up to Under Sixteens. Week in week out young players take to the fields with a common goal of learning and enjoying with the focus on retaining players within the game in a positive club environment.

The Under Sevens visited Aberavon Green Stars for their second game of the season. They enjoyed their travels to the west. In a very fast paced match, which saw great tagging and running ability from both sides the Sports scored eleven tries with Oscar Gee, Matthew Griffiths, Archie Hall and Ollie Balmer all scoring. Seb Stowe, Gethin Roberts, Aaron Eynon, Holly Eynon & Mickey Heanu all made some fantastic tags.

The Under Eights through to the Under Elevens all travelled to Pencoed. All teams had a share of wins, draws and defeats. All part of the learning experience, with clubs undertaking to ensure all players have equal game time with a view to growing the number of players enjoying participating in the game of rugby.

Pencoed came out on top in the Under Eights fixture in the three periods of play, scoring six tries in the first period, five in the second and third with the Sports responding with two tries, one from Sam Heycock and the other by Rhys Evans with Sam Heycock proving to be a star performer.

In the Under Nines game, both sides shared success with a win loss and draw in the three periods of play. Some great rugby was played by both teams with a great effort especially as the players are in the very early stages of the contact game, having moved on from tag rugby this season. Gethin Evans, Harry Mallinson, Jayden Walters, Billy Carpenter-Davies and Leo Giraud scored 4 tries with Ioan Powell and Lennon Griffiths scoring one.Top of Form

The Under Tens opened their season this week, with the ruck area the focus of development.  The Sports had Twenty-One Players all taking to the field during the three periods of play. It was Pencoed who scored the most tries with six tries to the sports one with the third period proving to be a very competitive affair.

The tables were turned in the Under Elevens game where it was the Sports who ran in the tries. Conditions and a sticky pitch restricted play to a start stop affair, the game was also very physical. Rhys Anthony (2), Ben Evans and, Sam Gardner scored the tries and Jack Sperduty converted 3 out of the 4. Stand out player performances came from Dan Harris, Tom Bimson, Gruff Roberts but it was a great all-round team effort from the Sports.
