  • Return of the Old Boys

    Minety 1st XV 33 – 26 Minety Old Boys 4th September 2021 View Fixture This weekends game saw the new Minety players face off with ex-Minety players from years gone by. The game was played in three twenty minute periods. The first twenty-minute period kicked off with the 1st XV kicking to the old boys going up the hill. The old boys caught the ball and ran it hard at the 1st XV’s lines. The difference in size made an impact in these opening exchanges. The ruck area became important to both sides with the old boys contesting every ruck and every half chance at a turn over. The old boys pushed hard in the opening twenty to take three tries down the hill. The 1st XV took a bit of time to settle in attack, but Garin Garland managed to help the 1st XV stay in touching distance with two well taken tries. The second twenty the 1stXV had the hill and settled into their attack pattern, with the forwards forming their pods and helping to pin the old boys back into their 22. Although the attack didn’t lead to a direct try the fact that the old boys infringed so often close to the line and preformed a dangerous tackle that stopped a try lead to the referee losing patients with them and awarding a penalty try to the 1stXV. The old boys answered with a try of their own. The final period saw the 1stXV kicking back up the hill to the old boys. Having found their attacking form, the 1stXV pushed up the hill to put Matt Stone in the corner and then Garland went over for his third of the day putting the score at 33-26. The old boys attacking hard down the hill were looking to level the scores in the dying minutes of the game but the 1stXV had found their defensive shape and managed to to hold the line despite the ferocity of the attack. The player of the match went to Charlie Webb. He led the defence having worked on it in the week. Speaking of the game after the match Captain Ben Scott said: “The lads did really well today against a big strong side. We didn’t start as strongly as we would have like but found our feet in the mid 20 and finished well. With two more games to go before the season starts for real, we will look to address the slow starts we have had and keep building into the season.”

  • Tough Day at the Office

    Minety 12 - 54 Chippenham II View Fixture Minety RFC took to the field in the opening preseason game having not play a game of competitive rugby in over 500 days and with a mix and match team of players playing out of position. Kicking down the hill to open the game Minety looked to put pressure on the Chippenham pack and had some limited success in building that pressure and creating knock ons to get scrum ball. However, through a lack of match fitness and rustiness the host failed to capitalise on the few chances that came their way. The hosts where hindered further when they lost vice-captain Sam Hughes and had to go down to 14 men for the remainder of the half. Chippenham opened that score early in the first half and dominated for the first 40 minutes scoring 40 unanswered points with Minety struggling to find rhythm in attack or defence. The second half couldn’t have looked more different. Minety going up the hill got their defensive sets right and lead by the pack and the addition of a 15 th man in Garin Garland managed to push the visitors back up the hill and pin them there for large swaths of the second half. Minety scored first in the second half after Minety won scrum ball in the opposition half and a break from Garland and swift offload to Dave Cooke saw the host score next to the posts. Garland converted. The second of Minetys tries came from another dominate showing from the forward pack picking up some penalties to get a lineout in the corner. A well-executed lineout catch and drive allowed space for Garland to ferret his way over in the corner. Unfortunately for the hosts a few mistakes lead to a answering try from Chippenham that spurred them on to push hard and finish the half in the lead at 12-14. Speaking of the match after the game Captain Ben Scott said: “I am proud of the lads who turned out to day with many playing out of position it was always going to be a tough game against a well drilled Chippenham side who have already had some games under their belt. I would however like to pick out a player of the match, and this week that has to go to Anton Sieluzycki. Today was his first game of Rugby and his first taste of the front row. He played well in the loose carrying when he needed to and offering support lines to others. His lineout was solid and helped build a platform for us to play off but where he shined was in the scrum. With him, Matt Park and Andy Darrall winning us scrum penalties in the second half it allowed us to relieve pressure and get out of our half to really get stuck into Chippenham and to play the way we wanted.”
