have gone to the
Thanks to all the Gents that made this fixture special. Extra special graditude to all the Gents that sacrificed their positions with the Gents and helped fill out the Wild Geese roster,such as, Frank Punch,Mike Toole,Mac Adams--there were more. Post match honors as follows:
Man of the Match=Russ Simoes was overlooked and did not play today, he never comlained;personal apologies from Cary,"my bad."
Inspirational=John Fleming,legendary Richmond prop going back 35 years,overcoming serious physical setbacks in recent years and coming back to play today
Lightning=Skip Yeager is still an active player competing at the highest level on the national 7 a side scene. He put the buzz in our backline today.
Bright surprise=Jim McClure at ourside center is pushing 60 but got his rugby legs back in rapid fashion today and mixed it up with the best of them.
Youngest looking=Al Lucas has a secret;plays with abandon, yet sure he is 40.
Finest Rugby Pitch=Our pitch was square! Wide as it was long---kinda like how our bodies morph over the years. We felt young and swift;we covered territory from 22 to 22 with aplomb.
Most appreciated:Marc Butler and Stokes McCune at prop
Best ref=Ron Murray
Best moment: Al Lucas barely grazes the goalposts and the left upright comes tumbling down in two pieces as players run for their mortal lives rather than risk impalement by a wood stud into the soft part of their skull. We got lucky.
Please visit your rugby site often: Our fall fixtures are disposed of--enjoy your holidays. This Spring we have three fixtures. Wild Geese will host us up at their pastoral rugby paradise in Maryland country side. Porter Cup in April and Commonwealth Cup in May 22.
