U11's on fire!!!!

The U11's have continued with their impressive form this weekend.


Saturday saw a total of ten Mini Pitmen playing in the two Rhymney Valley U11's District teams v Neath Schools U11's on the Centre of Sporting Excellence 3G pitch. The B team played first, putting in an excellent performance to win the match 15-5. Haydn Butcher was one of the three try scorers in a very exciting match. All of the Mini Pitmen put in a fantastic shift as always. Well done boys! 

The A team played next, unfortunately losing 40-5. Again, the Mini Pitmen put in a fine performance and made many important contributions to the match. There's also only so many things you can do without the ball. Heads up boys! Just keep plugging away and things will soon turn good.

On Sunday, we welcomed Bedwas RFC U11's to Trinity fields. Bedwas had several players out with injury and unavailability, so the Mini Pitmen willingly offered to lend players to our opposition to ensure the boys got to play a bit of rugby. In the first half, the Mini Pitmen were rampant, soon notching up the tries. By half time the score was PENALLTA 40-0 BEDWAS. In the second half, the Mini Pitmen continued to play especially good rugby. There were some momentary lapses in concentration which lead to Bedwas scoring 2 tries, but again the skills on show by the Mini Pitmen were too strong, with them running in 6 more tries.

Final score: PENALLTA 70-10 BEDWAS

Our player of the week this week is Rhys Jones! Well done Rhys and well done to the rest of the team.

A very pleasing performance by the Mini Pitmen. What was also very pleasing to see was all of the Mini Pitmen volunteering to help our neighbouring club out with players. Thank you boys! Also a thank you to Bedwas RFC U11's players, coaches and parents for creating a really supporting environment for the kids to play.

Try scorers: Connor Elsbury (3), Bailey Selway (2), Cai Wardman (2), Efan Betts (2), Evan Burridge (2), Haydn Butcher (1), Harvey Watkins (1), Ieuan Smythe (1).
