So what happened there then, huh? Was the cry from New Brighton when they thought they'd scored but hadn't and had to come back for a drop out 22 from us which ultimately confused Dick's lady ref friend later on when she added up the score and mixed up that non try with a successful penalty and thrice denied any mistake (just like Peter) causing an argument with Chief and New Brighton and the CRRA grader chap who was nearby but it was all sorted in the end hopefully but which will be confirmed in the CRFU results on Monday. And that's how our game went.
No, but seriously, she wasn't up to par. At all.
When we hit the field jogging, I thought we started particularly well. The usual suspects did their usual 110% effort and with others seeing their example, pushed themselves to above 80% which was a joy and a pleasure to watch. Even two runaway(ish) tries against us didn't dampen our efforts. Scrummaging was spot on with Jamie being particulary strong. Uncle Phil donned his boots for a start and showed us all he's still up there and will always be so. I often have a few jibes at Muncher's expense whenever he plays or doesn't play, but today he paired up with Pieman nicely even though he is an ungainly looking gangly moving lump of legs and arms. And speaking of arms and legs, congratulations to Courtney for letting Col put a new persons arms and legs and everything inside her. More Keiths are needed. Leyt's arm and shoulder or whatever has proved fixable by means of an operation and months of therapy but even after his announcement of permanent retirement we will welcome back into the skitteries next year.
Webb started at 9. Frankie took over at 9. Both left unusually early due to tiredness. Chester started at 11 but was replaced before the game, He then went on at 11 only to moved to 9 where the power of jebus took hold and he's become officially a multi positional player after showing us his wing and fullback skills in the past. It's so much fun to watch opposition players laugh him off only to find themselves upside down and wondering what the hell just happened.
Toad's age is catching up with him, as is Poacher's which is lucky we have Murray and Dick and Tito and Ross to inject some speed and youth into the centres. Experience, however, is just as important so we're lucky to still have them both guiding and directing the back line to success.
Thanks have got to go to Webby this year, who has taken over Lucey's role of bringing in the good players. Tito, Emili and Sione so far with more to come, or so he says. Next weeks match against Marist-Albion will be Webby's official 175th so hopefully his body will hold up til then.
My father said to me many years ago that the mark of a good player was that he was hardly ever seen on the field. I always took it in the opposite manner for what it was meant because I was tall and ran everywhere and very noticeable and wank wank wank. I think the mark of a good player is one where you are noticed for the work you do and on occasion, even though I see the work on the field, I don't always write about it here. So, if your name doesn't appear in highlighted paragraphs praising you, it doesn't mean you were crap or not noticeable. The most likely explanation is I was trying to think up amusing things to say about Breen. Or Dirk.
One final slight observation, if I may. Murray and Dick seem to do an awful lot of pre-game stretching and warming up before each game but Breen doesn't. Murray and Dick are always ready to run and kick and tackle and pass and be noticed but Breen isn't. Murray and Dick don't particularly turn up to Keith things, such as aftermatch drinks at the clubrooms, but Breen does. Does this make Breen (sharp intake of breath) the more Keithly?
