This match, won by Glamorgan at 4.15 pm on the second day, was one in which three records were broken.
The Glamorgan total of 538, scored in 270 minutes, was a new record for the Championship, exceeding the 517 for 8 wickets declared scored by Northamptonshire against Durham at South Shields in 1900, and was the highest of the season.
The 254 scored by Morgan was also a new Championship record, the previous one being held by J F Marsh with 200 not out for Oxfordshire against Buckinghamshire at Aylesbury in 1899.
The Glamorgan opening partnership of 250 was yet another record beating the 224 put on for the first wicket by L G A Collins and M J Dauglish for Berkshire against Oxfordshire at Reading in 1898.
Morgan's innings contained 1 six, and 40 fours.
He reached his first hundred in 110 minutes, his second hundred in 190 minutes, and his 254 in 220 minutes.
There were 14 fours, 2 threes, and 10 twos in Osborne's 110.
S Lowe took 12 wickets in the game for 97 runs.
For Monmouthshire, F Rees scored 60, which included 8 fours, and Phillips 51, which also included 8 fours.
In the Monmouthshire second innings, these two batmen put on 108 runs for the fifth wicket.
The 162 runs conceded by Silverlock was the third highest by a bowler in an innings during the season.
The start on the first day was delayed until 12.00 pm because the visitors were held up by a railway accident in the Newport tunnel.
Some newspaper reports indicate Lloyd captained Monmouthshire not Stedman
