Celtic U8s win Round Robin Tournament

Maesteg Celtic U8s played a round robin tournament on a cold wet Sunday morning. They planned to play 3 teams, Nanty, Valley Ravens and an unbeaten Tondu.


First up was Valley Ravens and in a small break in the weather the both teams played some good stuff. It was Celtic who came out on top with great running in attack and strong tagging in defence. The try scorers were:-

Oscar 3, Zachary 3 and one try each for Rhys and Arlo 

The a final score was 8-4 to Celtic


Next up was unbeaten Tondu. Celtic knew they had a game on their hands as the condition where getting worse. The week before they had drawn with Tondu so were looking forward to the return leg.

The game started off with Celtic breaking the dead lock first through Ioan again. Shortly after Tondu’s player Nic (named the “beast” for his pure size. A good 2 ft taller than most 7 year olds) scored. The game continued with the score going back and fore with tries for both teams. With seconds left Celtic managed to sneak a try to win 6 - 5 and be the first ever team to beat Tondu U8s, 

Celtic try scorers:-

Ioan    2 

Zac     2 

Oscar 1 

Rhys  1


Celtic‘s 3rd game against Nanty was then called off before it even started as Nanty parents didn’t like the weather conditions, and the day was at an end
