BUS DRIVERS RUN OVER THE ONLY TEAM WHO ACTUALLY LIKE GOING TO HANSEN PARK
First game up and what happens; we score first! Jesus wept I never saw that coming. Naturally it shocked everyone else and we went downhill on the scoring board from there. However, doom and gloom this first game was not.
New jerseys mean slimmer and fitter boys (if they want to fit into the jerseys that is) and it also means we're harder to grab onto as we go flying by. So double plus good on that score. Speaking of New Boys scoring on debut. Well done Georgie for bringing Shane along. I think he surpassed you after the first ten minutes with rugby ability. Kicking catching, running, passing without falling over is a skill not easy to master. A well deserved try, a well deserved Player of the Day and a well deserved Most Valuable Player.
Another Keith who seems to have mastered the falling over (the tryline with ball in hand) bit was Piez. If you don't believe me, check out video number 4.*1 Cal converted it nicely after Tom gave up the kicking early on in the game.
First and second half highlights included Muzz bursting forth all the way through Sydenham's lines and Scooba being all wingery on the wing. Damo got his heart attack over with early on and came back strong, but would rather not be quite so physical again. My dad always told me that if no one saw you on the field you were either doing your job well or were hiding from everything; did anyone see Muncher during the game? Never mind, he turned up at the clubrooms very late wearing one of his gynecologist wifes blouses. Andy did a sterling job as Captain, but he and the back line leader need to be more vocal. We all need encouragement (a kick up the arse) to get through (life) the game.
As usual at the start of the season, many Keiths were unavailable because of reasons or the wife, whichever wears the trousers, but by game three, things should be on track for numbers and the getting to know you phase that the first couple of games each year are renown for.
And speaking of not being prepared; warm beer, and no rugby on tv at the clubrooms isn't a good start. Thank goodness no visiting teams were there to not enjoy themselves.
Our good friends Sumner are up next week, so plenty of training on Thursday may be required.
