BY THE POWER VESTED IN ME BY THE LEGEND OF GREYSKULL, I HEREBY PRONOUNCE ALL THE IRISH IN THE TEAM, HAPPILY MARRIED
I've been keeping Team records and results since 1995 and it's been over 20 years since Keith traveled to Lyttelton and I know this because a) I remember playing against them back when it was 3rd Grade and b) I don't have a record of the match.
Some in the team may have been put out by the fact that Lyttelton needed help from another team so that a full team and a match could be played. Fair enough, until you remember we did that ourselves only 1 week earlier. So karma, bitch. But seriously, Lyttelton were in a grave position of nearly defaulting the game, so we're thankful they didn't.
Half One was gotten off to with a hiss and a roar, immediately followed by the opposition repeating that hissing and roaring and all sorts of noises and expelling of air from the lungs. It made for some exciting rugby to watch and some hopeful nervousness at half time. Paddy was as keen as an expertly honed knife to have Tito pass him the ball, but Tito may have had trouble discerning the Irish lilt in Paddy's voice for that of a seagull, so consequently, Paddy didn't get to handle many try scoring opportunities. Again.
Tito, however scored quite brilliantly, so that was all right then. Toad and Emili did likewise and that was also all right.
Big Hard Dirk was almost 100% with his kicks and still managed to keep his top spot on the points table.
Pieman (Simple Simon) was our go to jumper, no matter what position he was in the lineout and Lyttelton hardly ever noticed and their constantl calling for short lineouts wasn't at all related I'm sure. Piez (Who Ate All The) was picked in the starting front row much to his bodys annoyance, but muscle (fat) memory soon kicked in and it got used to playing more than 20 minutes in a single go.
Stand outs in the first half were Sam and Emili being everywhere man and Trouty for not recognising any possible children in the crowd.
Steve Jones started the First half like this but finished the second like this so well done that man. Other men needing claps on the back for in the second half are Dick and Fatu for facing certain death defying injuries and Red and Breen for being ginger and proud of it. Also to Chester for his hair.
Other points of note in Half Two were the lack of any points from our team at all and the coldness of the air once the sun went behind the rim of the volcano.
I wont mention me being all alone at the clubrooms as it's a sore point and unworthy of mention as I said at the start of this sentence.
