I'VE BEEN TRAWLING THE WAYBACK INTERNET MACHINE AND FOUND SOMETHINGS I THOUGHT LOST
Category: General Posted by: Keith Rugby
Let's just get one thing clear, and it's the same thing I've been saying since Jesus was a carpenter's apprentice, we don't need a referee to win, or to lose us the game. We just need one to be there and to do his/her best. Also one who understands enough about physics to know what forward motion is.
Can we talk about the starting back line for a moment and mention that not a single player had more than 10 Keith games under their belt with most of them under 5; or we can talk about how fantastic they were. Blake's an able replacement for Webby, Brian and Brett combined well with Dick Power at the back.
And in the forwards, Lachie made his mark and Colin has a worthy Keith snapping at his position in the team.
Div 4 teams are always tough, but it's strength of character, fitness and the discipline that the Keiths have that make us a feared Team in either Div 4 or Classics grades. This proved again, to be the case today. We didn't start perfectly, but we recognised where we were going wrong and corrected it, to make us scrum better, lineout better, break through their backline better, and tactically kick better. The starting 15 and the reserves can be proud of themselves today. Except for Paddy. he didn't play.
To the New Boys, if you feel you've made the right team choice, then we welcome you with open arms and know you wont regret it. If you feel the Keiths aren't for you, we wish you good fortune in your rugby career.
To the Old Coves, I know most of your bodies are breaking down, but we still need you and still want you and your experience.
To the rest of the Keiths; keep coming back. We're in this together and we can go all the way with your help.
I also have an apology. There are no 2nd half videos or photographs from the game as my btteries decided I really should have recharged them last night instead of watching dvds. So to make up for the lack of 2nd half pictures, here's a wee extra that someone of whom if have no knowledge of whatsoever sent me.
CHIEF HAS THE GAME PLAY SUSSED
Dirty Old Bollocks came out to play. So did their chief accountant or so it seemed by the way he was ticking off the number of reserves we were bringing on. But that's just the end result of the CRFU fucking about with things they still don't understand.
Anyways, Lars lead the team out for his centenary match (100 games, 235 points, 15 years) and showed glimpses of his former skills. Then he came off for a rest. Oh, he had a plausible sounding story about his knee, but I think he just wanted his bed.
Lars's big game, plus last weeks dismal personnel effort brought out huge numbers of which sadly, 8 of the 19 reserves didn't get on the field. That situation will be rectified next week Trouty assured me but it's a situation I'm glad we're in.
Seamus bit the bullet and finally decided to become a permanent member of the Keiths and celebrated by scoring a piss easy try, even my dead grandmother could have scored. Oh wait, he didn't score a piss easy try, he just kept on running until he ran over the dead ball line. All that inbuilt inertia must have dragged him onwards. Nevermind. Poacher and Brian and Freddy and Andy made up for it.
I really loved watching today's match. Keiths I've know for decades were playing well and Keiths I've never met before put in huge efforts. It truely was a great game to watch. The aftermatch shenannigans were equally enjoyable, with a bit of a sing song, some sculls, some no handed sculls and a wee possum scull rounded the day off perfectly.
