Man of the Match!

May 14, 2011

It was the match that all Sydney had been waiting for…Scots v View. The lout had put his kilt aside after a riveting session of Friday afternoon drumming in preparation for Rotterdam 2014 (the centenary – more news to come), and was fired up for the Saturday morning rugby game. Sadly, domestic arrangements and changes made by the mater the night before resulted in your correspondent missing the all important game across the Harbour. But from the post match news and scorecard it is clear that there are 15 young chaps in blue and white who themselves would also rather have missed this game.

For the lout arrived on fire, steamed up and ready to show the kids at View how to play rugby. He’d been to his rugby camp and had personal training and rugby strategy given to him from the likes of Kurtley Beale and Matt Burke. ‘See my footy’, said the lout, ‘KB signed that’ – such comments and the sight of the lout and his ball sent tremors through the opposition team. And with the first touch of the ball it was evident to all that this would be rugby at its finest. He played at Centre postion,  and within a few minutes of the kick off, the KB trained up and coming superstar had broken through the backline and scored his first try. From that moment it was magic to watch: Weaving, darting, passing, making breaks, length of the field runs, dummy passes, try saving tackles – it was all there. In the scintillating performance of the year, the lout was an inspiration to his team who combined to put in a full 15 man team effort which had the bagpipes blowing so loudly they could be heard over here in the East. And it was not just one try – the lout scored another two blinders before the full time whistle was blown. Final Score: 36-15 – a demolition job. Who was Man of the Match? the players asked the coach. There was no question about it: The Lout, answered the Coach! Well done, young champ! Looking forward to the rest of the season!
