Crikey. What a change up. The Saracens have always been a tough team to beat and again they showed us up in several aspects of our game. Mostly the mental aspect of our game. While we weren't laissez-faire about our approach, we were at time lack-lustre about what we had to do. Lots of work to be done at training on Thursday if we want to keep our top(ish) place on the table.
Congratulations where congratulations are due, Sean for a storming barging get out of my fucking way try; Webby for being the only one on the field talking (with help from Jones and Arapai from the sideline); Trouty and Chief for doing their damndest to inspire us; Uli for not looking a day over 35; Colin for faking an injury in the hope of getting a sympathy root from the missus and of course, Tom who missed out on his 100% kicking last week but managed to get it this week (100% not over the bar or even anywhere close despite him practicing for an hour before the game).

May I just say first up, this relatively young Burnside Team are a credit to rugby, their club and to themselves. Getting your arse kicked every week can be an awful thing, but these guys keep smiling, keep playing, keep taking every opportunity to pounce on a mistake by the opposition, and when it's all over, they have a beer and chat about rugby, life and shit. I was impressed.
During the week, I had this nagging thought in the back of my head that based on Burnside's current form, we'd simply switch off and treat the game as a forgone conclusion. And we know how that attitude can backfire. Even international teams can get into the wrong head space. I am however, extremely glad to report that Keith had a game plan, had focus and had the right desire to win by scoring tries not by waltzing past the opposition, but by working the ball, working the mauls and working the play. Which is how it's supposed to be done. I was impressed. Read more
Keith v Christchurch C - 28th May 2016
Wet underfoot, but otherwise, excellent conditions to play Sargentina Trophy rugby.
Quite a few players decided for nebulous reasons that they couldn't play today, and a few who were under an injury cloud fronted up, so I know who's on my short list for Keith of the Year. But for once, coaching staff were calm and un-panicked which along with the general upbeat mood of the rest of the guys, gave a positive air of confidence in the Keith Pavillion contrary to the actual air in the Pavillion which is full of dirt, dead skin, beer and general mold spores.
Muncher gave a pre-match speech about something, but I for one wasn't listening. Apparently his wife's a gynecologist or something. Trouty didn't say much. Chief didn't say much. Poacher didn't say much. Only because we knew what we had to do and simply got our heads into the right space without being mummy and daddied into it. I prefer it that way to be honest. Read more
