PRE-SEASON BASH


BRAVE TEAM BEATEN IN BLOODBATH (NZPA Reuters)
The Hawaiian Delights kicked off their first season with a spectacular display of running rugby (until they got puffed) and scored a valiant loss against their far more experienced opponents, the intimidating Tiwai Tigers. The game was played in 15 minute quarters (that felt much longer) in brilliant sunshine at Pirates RFU in front of a large and appreciative (if somewhat unruly) crowd. Some impressive debut performances were displayed, with several of the team playing their first ever game of rugby, and the majority of the rest playing out of their regular positions... Needless to say some culture shock was experienced early on, (which was ruthlessly exploited by the Tigers who ran in several lucky tries), but the team rallied, and as the players learned their roles and began combining as a unit deservedly (and resoundingly) won the second half... Some unfortunate injuries were received, (mainly to the opposition) with a broken collarbone and a very painful looking dislocated elbow (which required a 'real' ambulance - cool) but the Delights also suffered, with a blood nose to Arthur, a messy head wound to Colin, and a minor knee injury to Nath who had to leave the field after wrenching one of his mighty twigs...

- Players of the day: Stick and Big Jim
- Score: about 40 - 20 to them
- Enjoyment factor: huge


GAME 1 vs EXCELSIOR, Marist No 2 ground


HANDSOME TEAM ROBBED BY FICKLE WIND (NZPA - Reuters)
The Southland Presidents grade competition has begun and the Hawaiian Delights have kicked off as they mean to go on with a hard fought and very close match against Excelsior... The Gore lads scraped a lucky win, due largely to having the good fortunate to play downhill with a hurricane force wind behind them in the first half, (estimated by impartial onlookers to be worth at least 80 points)... Unfortunately for the Delights, the wind seemed to reverse completely at the turn of play, (as did the hill, strangely), which enabled the visitors to take the early season honours with a scratchy final result of 55 - 0... (ok they dorked us)... HOWEVER the Delights can take heart in the fact that Excelsior is really a B side, and so a moral victory may comfortably be claimed... No major injuries of note, (just Colin's head again) but we are saddened by the loss of two players for the season after injuries received last week... It appears that both Flounder Bill and Bede Mulholland are big Sooky La-La's and have effectively withdrawn from the competition... A fine effort from Bill, however in cooking the sausages for the team on Saturday...
...mmmm, sausages...

- Players of the day Lyal and Mark
- Player of the night Lyal (who got so drunk he had to smash his way into the house when he got home)
- Dildo award presented to Jaapie Metzler, who in a fit of adrenaline took on one of their loosies and was last seen being shaken by the throat (with his body dangling like a piece of wet string) as the realisation of his size kicked in... Nice cardie mate...
- Call of the day, Broomy, with..."Stick must be a paedophile, 'cos he's got a pair of young boys legs hanging out of his shorts..."

- Score: 55 - Nil to them
- Enjoyment factor: great, but a bit cold in the pissy rain, and unfortunately we are still on a down-trou points wise... (first try scorer will have to consume mightily)...



GAME 2 vs BLUFF, Bluff No 1 Ground


HAWAIIAN DELIGHT AT BLUFF (NZPA - Reuters)
Another tough game was experienced by the team on Saturday, with 50 points being scored against us for the second consecutive week... However, that pales into insignificance beside the fact that WE SCORED OUR FIRST POINTS... yes a try has been scored by the team, and we have something on the 'Points for' table at last... (Points against = 105). Cooky scored our 5 pointer with a spectacular solo effort, although young Arthur was unfortunate not to be awarded a first half try after a successful chip and chase was denied by the ref (get up there Pete, you were running like us)... The game was held at Bluff in marvellous conditions, and was a very physical but fair encounter, with both sides enjoying a beer and sausage (mmm... sausages) at the close of play... Thanks must go to the supporters/ cooks, Lance the crip and big fat Bundy (who turned up in a particularly large and garish Hawaiian shirt, and waddled about in a comical manner for our amusement)... Thanks also to the newcomers Jethro and Jim, we were struggling for numbers out there and needed everybody we could get... (we REALLY need some subs for next week)...

- Players of the day Richard and Cooky...
- Dildo award to Canadian Jim for playing half the game in Gym shoes...
- Call of the day to whoever it was that pointed out to Bluff that we bought our imported players by the pound, (which explained Jaapie's size)... with an honourable mention to Jaapie himself, whose lineout call of 'Bougainvillea' successfully confused everybody (and almost won him the dildo award for the 2nd week in a row)...
- Sooky La La award to big gay Waric, who is out for 6 weeks with a calf injury, (which the ref thought was a broken ankle due to his wonky feet)...
- Score 50 - 5 to them
- Enjoyment factor, good hard game but pretty tough with no subs, (we were knackered)...


GAME 3 vs CENTRAL PIRATES, Marist No 1 Ground


PENALTY TRY ROBS GALLANT TEAM - (NZPA - Reuters)
The Hawaiian Delights were cruelly denied a deserved first win on Saturday, after referee Colin Hawke awarded a dubious penalty try to Central Pirates, effectively preventing an unassailable first half lead being capitalised on by the hard men in yellow... (who some on the sideline unfairly tagged the teletubbies...) Jaapie had got the team under way early on with a tremendous chip and chase (which received cries of scorn and derision until he dotted down), and big Jim was shortly afterward held up over their line, at which point the better looking team appeared invincible... The unfortunate loss of the tight five kingpin Donnelly, (who lasted a record 14 minutes before going off with breathing difficulties (ie puffed)), combined with the spirit-sapping penalty try, strong second half head wind, and complete failure of Logies cunning plan to depower their scrum, meant a game that should have been won, wasn't... but who gives a bugger... we're out there for the beer and sausages... (mmm...sausages)... which were devoured afterward in the afternoon sunshine, (without sauce... aaarghhh)... and drinks were enjoyed inside the clubrooms with the visitors before they had to depart... (once again, keen as for the return match)...

- Players of the day - Jaapie and Arthur..
- Dildo award - Hoges, who created a spectacular penalty try, with another nod to Jaapie, who almost took it out again (3rd time) for going back on wearing a plastic Lei... (very intimidating Jaap...)
- Call of the day - Alan, for his rousing sideline chant of "Go Yellowbellies..."
- Sooky La-La award - Nathan takes it out for going off with a rib problem, then bitching and moaning all night about a sore wing, and discovering a broken wrist on Sunday morning (requiring a luminous green cast for a couple of weeks)...
- Supporter of the day - No contest... it's gotta go to the girls who ensured the team got Lei'd after the game... good effort...
- Score 26 - 10 to them


GAME 4 vs EDENDALE, Edendale No 1 Ground


DELIGHTS AMBUSHED IN JUNGLE -(NZPA Reuters)
Another hiding was dished out to the Delights in tremenously hot weather amid knee length grass out at Edendale... That's the only excuse I can offer unfortunately as we didn't make a tackle all day and were carved up all over the show... On the plus side some new players made their debut, and we had a team photographer for the day, taking some good action shots for our files (thanks Skins)...

- Players of the day - Terry, who scored an amazing solo try...
- Dildo award - Brett, who lasted an amazing 4 minutes before going off with a split head, and having to travel to hospital...
- Call of the day - Alan, with an honest but unnecessary cry of "I should be there" when we were once again caught with no support...
- Sooky La-La award - Logie, who didn't play because he got a tattoo last week...?
- Score 53 - 5 to them


GAME 5 vs Wyndham, Wyndham Showgrounds


YELLOWBELLIES VICTORIOUS IN THE DARK- (NZPA - Reuters)
The onset of duck fucking season meant the Hawaiian Delights were called upon to play Wyndham under lights on Thursday night, with spectacular results...yes, it's true... WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON WE WON... Huzzahhh...!!! (but we were pretty cool about it)... What a different team... tackles were made, the ball carrier was supported, people were communicating and encouraging each other... If they weren't all so out of shape and wearing yellow it could have been the All Blacks out there... (well, maybe the AB's that played against France last year...) Four tries were scored in drizzly weather under bad lights and during 30 minute halves... (Could that be our winning formula...?) and a pleasing number turned out, with plenty of subs making a substantial difference to the outcome... ie less people wheezing and dragging their sorry arses around...The only bugger was there were no speeches at the club on Sat night, and we missed perhaps our only chance to gloat, still... we did get to celebrate on Thurs, Fri AND Saturday nights... Thanks must also go to the Wyndham lads who courteously dropped a 24 pack of Speights on the table after the game, and I hope they enjoyed a good shoot on Sat morning...

- Players of the day - Big Al and Stick... (Al managed to scab TWO free 1/2 yards of piss...)
- Dildo Award winner - Joe for forgetting his boots... quote in the changing shed..."I know EXACTLY where my boots are..."
- Call of the day - Everybody who shouted to get the ball on the deck... we finally got some second phase ball working...
- Sooky La La award - Deano, who put his foot down a rabbit hole and lay there crying and clutching his knee as their guys thundered towards the loose ball... Jeez Dean, you still had one good leg, couldn't you have crawled over to gather the ball as per our instructions...? (severely lacking in commitment I feel, and I'm sure those crutches are an elaborate ruse)...
Score 24 - 17 TO US...!!!
Reaction - Stunned Disbelief that we're off the bottom of the table... Look out Star, we're on a roll...


GAME 6 vs Star, Oreti Park


COMPETITION LEADERS STAR BEATEN IN SHOCK UPSET, nearly... - (NZPA - Reuters)
Champion team Star was lucky to scrape a narrow 45 point win over the Hawaiian Delights in a fine display of athletic, running rugby played under marvellous conditions out at Oreti park. The game was played out in a good atmosphere, as luckily the Star jokers knew how social we were, and played accordingly... (apparently they only put the weight on in the scrums if the opposition try to push them around)... Fortunately they didn't notice our determined shoves, and their huge forward pack didn't have to smash our wee bodies into submission as some (ie Jaapie) feared... The first Hawaiian try came from a tremendous solo run from Roy, who just kept on running and surprised everyone, and it looked as if an action replay was on the cards 10 minutes later as he made another burst... It wasn't to be however, as in the true spirit of Delights rugby he got puffed, gave up, and booted the shit out of it... The team can be heartened by their performance against a very strong team though, and should be looking forward with some optimism to the bottom of the table clash with Pukerau next week, in the last game of the round...

In other news, apparently Mercury TV made a mention of the Delights and their ambulances (ambulii...?) during their rugby coverage... and the jury is still out on Paul from the pub's excuse for missing another game, (after swearing he would be there this time)... his excuse this week being... "I slept in..."

Players of the day - Roy and Neil...
Call of the day - New boy Nathan's decision to wear those silky soccer shorts, (he did bloody well in his first game of rugby, but was nearly
castrated in the lineouts)...
Sooky La La award - Stick, for not having a shower after the game because it would hurt too much...
Dildo award given to Jethro for making his first appearance at the clubrooms, then ignoring the team and sitting with the netball girls... what've they got that we haven't Jeth...? He did however wear the cardie to the pub later, and MANAGED TO SCORE WHILE WEARING IT... maybe it really is a love cardie...?
Score - 69 - 24 to them





GAME 7 vs Pukerau, Pukerau rugby Ground


HAWAIIANS DELIGHTFUL IN FLASH NEW STRIP - (NZPA - Reuters)
The last game of the first round was played in cool but clear conditions out at the Pukerau rugby ground, and was noticeable both for being the inaugural game in the sexy new royal blue and white outfits, (Gggrrrrr...), and for the not-insignificant fact that we KICKED SOME BOTTY... yep, we won handsomely, and by the sort of margin that normally goes against us... It was a very clean game, with only two penalties awarded throughout, and must have been played at a furious pace given the amount of points scored during the agreed 30 minute halves... (hmmm... is it coincidence that we've only ever won in the shortened game...?) I'm not sure what accidentally went right, but the team seemed to click as a unit, (backing each other up well), and the large number of players who turned out so far from home also contributed to this historic victory... Drinkies were enjoyed with the Pukerau lads afterwards, (who have an awesome club setup) and I have to report that they remain undefeated in their famous boat races, even after giving us a one glass head start... (a bit of practice required there)... Only one Ambo made the trip due to the large number of private cars that were travelling, but owing to the great trip back (thanks for driving Emmett), I think both will be going in convoy for the next away game...

Players of the day - Pete and John
Dildo award - Cooky, for not passing to Pete for the last try... (any hooker that runs that far deserves some points) and once again, (sigh) Jaapie only avoided the cardie by the narrowest margin, (he was probably fortunate that he subbed off at the half)...
Sooky La La award - Arthur, who hurt his groin somehow... (probably pulling himself after getting a try)...
Supporter of the day - old broken-down Deano, who made the trip out and took photos for the boys...
Score 51 - 7 to US... (and yes that IS the right way round, disbelievers)...

Bring on round 2...


GAME 8 vs Pukerau, Pukerau rugby Ground


TROPICAL TEAM SUFFERS IN THE HEARTLAND - NZPA - (Reuters)
Ohhh dear... the Delights were beaten by a team they thrashed by almost 50 points last week, going down to a fired up Pukerau outfit who managed to score their first win of the season... AND they kicked our arse in the boat races again...(curses)...Things started well, with Pete the flying hooker (who had to have a spit before the game) setting up Paul from the pub for a great wingers try...but the game soon degenerated into a dour match, that really struggled to get going... The excuses flowed thick and fast, with the Ref's performance featuring prominently, as did the fact the game was being videoed, and even Jaapies marvellous new shorts copped some of the blame... Incidentally, even though we were out drinking and smoking pre-emptive celebratory cigars on Fri night, this had NOTHING to do with it.. (we do that every week)... Personally I blame Cooky... If he had scored five tries like he did last week we would never have been in this position... although Arthur pointed out (quite rightly) that we lost because we were unaccustomed to playing at altitude... and that we didn't suffer to the same extent last week as the tide was probably in then...

Players of the day - Jethro and Moons (with an honourable mention to the ref, who played a HUGE part in the game, at one stage even pulling big fat Loge out of the way so he could see better...?)
Call of the day - to Broomy, who on hearing the suggestion that Jaapie be sent to live with him to put on some weight, promptly grinned, winked and (perhaps too enthusiastically) blew him a kiss... (and you think Jaap' looks scared on the paddock...?)
Sooky La La - Nath (again), who came off after his customary 10 minutes with a snapped finger... (Once again the team lost it's way without him on the field... he's an inspiration I reckon... and I was amazed he didn't make All Black captain...)
Dildo award - New boy Mike, for using the sacred jersey as a towel... (although Moons was bloody fortunate not to get it for shouting "Come on
Pukerau"...? try and remember who you're playing for next week, mate...)
Score - 22 - 10 to them

PS: the stairs at the civil service club are PERFECT for stair surfing when pissed... (but expect carpet burns to the elbows)...


GAME 9 vs Central Pirates, ground 7, Oreti Park


DELIGHTS BACK ON TRACK WITH HOME WIN - (NZPA - Arthur 'Squishy' Henderson)
The Delights came away with a well-deserved win in very humid conditions on Saturday, which should lay to rest some demons, and hopefully set the tone for the rest of the season... There was a lot of soul searching on last week's sad loss to Pukerau during Wednesday's very intense and physically punishing practice session... (ok, it was 45 mins of touch footy), but it set the stage for a big comeback, and the loyal fans (fan?) weren't disappointed... The first try came within 5 minutes by way of a storming run from John Grant, who went straight up the middle to score under the posts, and the team never looked back, with the super-fit and extremely agile forwards dominating play up front and securing good lineout ball for the swift, strong running and rugged backs to perform their carefully thought out and well practised moves... this win was all the more satisfying as the team stalwarts were away flinging undies and getting down with their bad selves at the tom Jones concert in Christchurch...
Relative new-boy Doug deserves special mention as he scored his first try for the Delights... or would have if he didn't do a Forest Gump and run over the dead-ball line.. (yep, he's a prop)... This effort undeniably won him the goat of the day award, and was the source of much ridicule at the aftermatch festivities... A big thanks must also go to the sausage cookers who put in a sterling effort in the rain, which (once again) was much appreciated by all the Delights and opposition players...

Players of the day - Shaun Burns and Joe...
Dildo award - to "Dead-ball Doug", but the love cardie was worn (with pride) by Arthur due to the non-appearance of the recipient at the presentation... (Note: this will be punished appropriately at the next court session).. you cannot get away with this sort of thing...
Sooky La La - no award this week as Nathan wasn't playing...
Score - 37 - 5 to us...


GAME 10 vs Wyndham, ground 2, Marist


MEDIA FRENZY PUTS DELIGHTS OFF THEIR GAME - (NZPA - Reuters)
The Delights went down to a fairly serious Wyndham outfit in cool but sunny conditions on their home ground, and were graced by the first celebrity guest (of any note) in the form of his worship the mayor Tim Shadbolt, plus an attendant media entourage consisting of the Times, Mercury TV, and their own photographer, Pete (who continues to coincide his appearances with the court sessions, strangely)... Contrary to the Southland times feature, no valid excuses can be offered for the loss, although it must be said that the media attention did somewhat put the players off their normal game... Never before have I seen such a bunch of posers.. but top marks to Roy for featuring prominently in the photo that was published, (looking like a machine..) and commiserations to Neil, who cruelly had his thinning pate exposed to the nation...
It was going to take a top effort to displace Doug from wearing the cardie again for last weeks effort, but Al managed it, and wore it out with distinction... Not only did he fall asleep at the Civil Sevice club, but he was escorted off the premises both at Molly's and the Shack, and there are unsubstantiated reports he was later found asleep on Dee street... well done big guy... and thanks to your efforts on the dance floor, young women will forever flee when they see that tan cardigan approach them in the future...

Players of the day - I have no idea... (knock to the head)...
Dildo award - Big Al, who scored a magnificent try... (on the 22 line)...
Sooky La La - 10 minute Nath spent the evening at hospital (again) getting sewn up after a head clash, but the award must go to Waric the Gimp, whose other calf (supposedly the good one) gave out BEFORE the game... We have theorised this occurred as a protective measure, merely at the prospect of having to carry his enormous, blubbery man-breasts around the paddock...
Score - 20 -10 to them...


GAME 11 vs Waikiwi, ground 12, Oreti Park


FEARSOME TEAM DELIGHTS PAROCHIAL CROWD - (NZPA - Reuters)
An important milestone was reached on Saturday, when prior to the game, an opposition team actually asked the Hawaiian Delights to go easy on them... (really)... Maybe the publicity received lately has fooled people into thinking the Yellowbellies are good... or it could be the intimidation factor of 30 blokes in flowery shirts all looking keen and rearing to go... regardless, the Delights put together a good win over the only other town team in the division in sunny but cool and damp conditions at Oreti park... the Waikiwi lads were a bit short at the start of the game, so in light of our player riches we generously donated one of our founding members, T Cole (who was about to finally make his debut)... we thought it was a cunning move, sending our gayest player to the other side, but the bugger somehow scored two tries against us... and now has the dubious twin homours of holding a negative caps count, while also being the Delights player who has cost us the most points... (rest assured this WILL be mentioned come the next court session)... A thumbs up for committment must go to Matt, who flew down from Ch'ch at lunchtime, yet managed to arrange sprog care in time to make the game... and Jethro also deserves some special praise, for enthusiastically waving back to acknowledge what he thought was appreciative applause after scoring a try, when in reality the people on the sideline were just trying to get his attention, as the silly beggar had the team's beer locked in his car...

Players of the day - Joe and moons... (Note: player of the day awards are still rotated, but are now selected only from those available at the speeches)...
Dildo award - Mark, who cost us a try by indecently interfering with one of their jokers off the ball...
Sooky La La - Arthur, who missed his first game for the Delights after falling over playing in the snow...
Score - 47 - 25 to us...


GAME 12 vs Wrights Bush, ground 7, Oreti Park


YELLOWBELLIES RAMPANT IN GOLDEN MID WINTER SUNSHINE- (NZPA - Reuters)
Another good win has been secured by the increasingly impressive blue and whites, edging them closer to a semifinal appearance in the fiercely competitive Senior C grade competition, (2nd division)... Some fears were held before the game about the opposition's huge forward pack, (Wrights Bush being one of those strong 'one-team' areas), but they suffered a poor fat-man turnout, meaning Granny scrums were the rule, as were 30 minute halves, much to the Delights delight... (I've always wanted to say that)...
The big decision of the day was who to award the cardigan to, as no end of stupid events were occurring, (beginning with Joe's haircut), and you could hear the sighs of relief as each temporary holder witnessed a more idiotic performance than their own... Another notable event was the long-delayed debut of founding member fat Tony, who can finally be granted a jersey and have his name inscribed in the logbook with 60-odd other proud Delights members... (some of them very odd)...
An excellent game to both play and watch in the end, with the high scoreline reflecting the amount of running done during just 60 minutes of rugby, (only 4 lineouts in the game), which was helped largely by both brilliant weather and a very good ref, who seemed to actually understand the meaning of social grade footy... (funny how the ref is always good when we win)...

Players of the day - can't remember...
Dildo award - Finally went to Joe, who near the end of the game was patiently waiting in the lineout for the throw-in, (while everyone screamed for the thrower) until, with a near audible click, he realised it was him...
Sooky La La award - Both Tuatapere Pete and Mark B had to leave the field for treatment, (girls) but 10 minute Nath broke down the best, (after foolishly betting at the pub he would last an entire half), and had to add once again to this seasons X-ray folder... (20 so far and counting)...
Call of the day - To whoever it was in their forward pack who thought our lineout calls went by types of meat... (this misapprehension was probably brought about by Joe's erratic throwing)... had them buggered anyway...
Score - 52 - 21 to us...


GAME 13 vs Mossburn Pirates, ground 1, Mossburn


HAWAIIANS LOST IN THE FROST - (NZPA - Reuters)

What a debacle... The day started poorly, with no specialist locks or hooker due to injuries, and things managed to go downhill from there, with the late time change (at their request) causing the ref to rush us onto the rock hard paddock with no time for a warm-up or any strategic planning (unlike our normal well-drilled pre-match team routine)...
On the whole it was not a very enjoyable game, with the Mossburn jokers playing as if it was the super 12 final, continuously infringing, and never missing the chance to drop a knee or elbow into some Hawaiian blubber... (somewhat outside the spirit of second division Senior C's)... On the positive side, never has Broomy looked so athletic as when he leapt over a ruck to thump their annoying No 6, (who ran away like a little girl)... Time for some sprint work Broom... you might meet him again if we make the semi's...
Good work by the drivers Lyal and Stick, who got us home safely (although not very soberly) from the longest journey of the season... The trip out seemed to take forever but the return pub crawl whizzed past in a blur... and thumbs up to Neil, who spent the pub ticket machine prize money on bottles of port for the boys to drink in the ambo's... Just what we needed... (and yes that was sarcasm...)

- Players of the day - to that great double act, Asterix and Obelisk ... (Broomy and Moons, you figure out which is which)...
- Dildo award - An interesting development, as Both Arthur and Moons put up equally stupid defensive bombs, with Arthur only taking it out because Moons was hiding during the presentation... He turned up however down the pub, and after some superb clumsiness on the pool table, received the cardie with a sigh of relief from Arthur, who had taken a truckload of abuse from the local kiddies... (see below)...
- Sooky La La award - Pete deserves a mention for last weeks dingle that resulted in a couple of popped ribs, but this week the award goes to Waric again...
- Call of the Day - to the 8 yr old, who yelled out "Nice tits ya homo" at Arthur... perfect phrasing young fella, and well delivered to boot...
- Score - 46 - 10 to them... a hollow victory by overly-serious tossers, really... (who wouldn't even open the bar for us afterwards)...


GAME 14 vs Woodlands, ground 6, Oreti Park


YELLOWBELLIES MARCH INTO SEMI'S - (NZPA - Reuters)

A tremendous turnout from the Delights (due to the prospect of it being the last game of the season) and the willingness of Woodlands to play an attractive, social game contributed towards a marvellous spectacle of running rugby over the weekend... The Woodlands team were a well drilled unit, (particularly their forwards, who surprisingly opted for Granny scrums), and after some great tries by both sides the game was fairly level at half time. It took on another dimension after the break however, with the ball either passing through a million pairs of hands, or being nudged with precision down the sideline for some spectacular points scoring action... This may in part be attributed to Logan's astute substitution policy... what a stroke of genius to substitute 12 players at half time... (granted, a bit unfair on the tiring Woodlands jokers)... but very good from the large crowd of Delight's supporters viewpoint... (half of whom were players)... In fact spectators on the adjacent field were observed watching our game due to all the noise and yahooing going on... all good stuff, and enough to secure a spot in the prestigious second division Southland senior C's semifinals... huzzahh...

In an aside, did other astute rugby watchers out there notice the similarity between the storming beginning of the second half, and the try-fest the AB's started with against the Aussies later that night...? I think we can safely assume Wayne Smith was inspired by the Delights game plan, and we can justifiably take some pride from our part in the historic NZ victory... (watch out for a 12-man substitution at half time against the 'Boks, Mehrtens to be wearing a tan cardie for the interviews, and don't be surprised if you see Blackadder take himself off early to start cooking sausages...)
...It all began here...

Players of the day - to the second half centres, John and Matt...
- Dildo award - awarded to fat Tony originally, but greedily taken off him by Big Gay Lyal, who turned up at the clubrooms and stupidly confessed his duff pass that gave away a try should've won... thanks for reminding us, doofus, and don't stretch the cardie...
- Sooky La La award - No award this week, (Waric wasn't playing)... oh what the hell, he may as well have it again for being such a big girl...
- Call of the Day - to those first half players, (most of them) who pointed out that they had, in fact, softened up the opposition for the show-pony
second half squad...
- Score - 39 - 24 to us...
