9th League A vs. Alberton

13 played and 13 won. However this is not truly reflected in the league table as we are second behind Southern Suburbs who we beat. Bruce arrived early and comprehensively beat his opponent and proceeded to drink the bar dry (such a hassle playing first and so early) whilst the rest of us played which resulted in two decaf coffees at the celebratory meal at Dopio 00. Where is the staying power? Michael arrived on time to go straight on and loose his unbeaten record to a younger man from Wales who obviously played better than their rugby team and boasted (that continued all night) about having quaffed half a dozen beers before the game. Michael resorted to blaming the blameless ref, poor show, asking for lets that needed imagination, was feeling pissed off for letting the team down and as our marathon runner commented “you would have beaten him on any other day!” Shame it was not an other day. George followed after having had a Voltaren jab at lunch time and a tablet(s) at 4 to alleviate a painful back which he assured the team was not due to hanky panky the previous evening. We were not convinced till he pulled out his finger, on court, and won well. Mark complete with new shoes that must have gradually dazzled his opponent ‘cos it was plain sailing after loosing the first game and yes he is improving and made at least three drops whilst in front of his opponent with a 66.66% success rate.
