|Our opening charge to the 2013 season|
Half time score: Grimsby Gentlemen 0: Wilmot Warthogs 12
We continued to play strongly and got close a few times but failed to cross the line. and Wilmot scored twice mainly due to poor coverage and tackling.
Man of the Match goes to Nick Lord and we hope is knee is not too badly twisted. I really thought that the first ambulance that came to the clubhouse would be for me.
Their man of the match went to Vic who beat their guy in a drink off so we won something. Also a great job with the BBQ and thanks to Jen for the salads.
Congratulations to one player who played his first league game with the Gentlemen and his first at Alway field. Meet Adam Godfrey (formerly of Cobourg)
Thanks to Brennan, Nick and Ryan for coming early and cleaning out the clubhouse.
Thanks to the players for arriving fairly early for a good warm up.
In case you were worried, the Wilmot player who lost his keys and phone suddenly remembered he had worn a jacket and when he found the jacket, he found his keys and phone.
Be warned the IRB will change the cadence again to Crouch, Bind and Set next year because that is what they do (change cadences).
The one post that has been looked at the most is the Sept 12 2010 when we played Wilmot Away. It has been looked at 346 times which almost twice as many as the next post (183).
Korea defeated the Philippines 62 to 19 on the weekend and is number 26 in wold rankings only 73 ahead of Greece.
