Risca 40 - Caldicot 5

After almost 18 months, it was great to see rugby in Risca again and it certainly arrived with a bang. If there was any "ring rustiness" it was certainly not evident in this game. A large number of the Risca team were young players, some of whom were playing their first senior game. It must be said, they certainly did not back away from any situation and made themselves look worthy of wearing the Cuckoo badge going forward.

The game was played at a considerable pace and skill levels were certainly in the higher higher quartile. This is a credit to Chris Cornford and his coaching team of Owain Biddiscombe, Mike Griffiths and Gareth Hodson, and the hard work put in by everyone over the last number of weeks of pre-season training.

Risca played on the front foot and at a good pace. However, they were faced by a large Caldicot pack who were no push-over.

The game was played in excellent spirit and was thouroughly enjoyed by the live rugby starved crowd, that took a gamble on the weather and came out to watch this first game of the pre-season. Risca scored six tries to Caldicot's one. Ball handling and decision making was superb and a very quick, entertaining game was the result.

Nice to see numbers in the squad and a real positive to take away. 

Risca will entertain Pill Harriers next Saturday, again on the Baths Field due to ongoing pitch repairs on "The Stores".
