Round 9 Masters – Moorooka –.
A tight and tough affair, this was nonetheless a game we expected to win. A couple of nice possessions early on to Kanga again fuelled rumours of his alleged but rarely photographed existence around the club.
Haema continued his good form down back and TD was very busy in a tagging role. An unselfish handball over the top from Peter May gifted Slim an early goal that sadly denied him the opportunity to punch someone.
The clubs early form was soon broken down handing momentum to Moorooka who rallied to take the lead in the second quarter.
Cuddles nearly kicked an impossible goal from the boundary line but that makes perfect sense because if he’d kicked it, it wouldn’t be impossible now would it?
Mick ‘Mousey’ Joyce unveiled his new black tights to the club, in a move set to simultaneously arouse the female viewing public and anger the entire ballet community. Further additions next year of a feathered hat and scroll should complete the look.
Mary was busy through the middle and Rocket soared like his nickname implies and pulled down one of the grabs of the season, resulting in a badly needed goal. Princess, on the other hand, returning from what appeared to be a 4 week long pie eating tour of Europe, was badly in need of match fitness. Barely recognisable at first, compared to his former fit self, the game day staff had to take the drastic steps of spraying a number 8 onto a spare marquee they found lying around, in order to provide a jumper for him. It did have its benefits though with as many as 6 players standing in the shade behind him as the temperature heated up.
The Sharks medical staff continued to ponder and worry over the rare and exotic skin condition afflicting Ado’s hands that have prevented him from handballing all season.
Melon marked everything that came his way, Yatala Pete created space beautifully off half back all game and Slim booted a lazy 6 goals for the match but it still wasn’t enough to prevent us going down by 8 points.
