by Nick (the Snowcaps Captain) as “A perfect day for rugby….COLD,
WET and MISERABLE”. Yes, it was all of the above which made it even better
for those smart enough to know…….. it’s still the best way to spend a Sunday
The Snowcaps ran out winners
with a scoreline of 5 tries to our 1. Our try coming from Brian (Houle), who
found himself in the right place at the right time – standing (yes, standing) on
the goalline (yes, goalline), being handed the ball (yes, handed) and touching
the post. Wow, how does he do it?
Overall it was an excellent
game of rugby. We didn’t have a full team, so we had to borrow a few players
from the ‘Caps. Not a nice thing to admit for a home game. Come on fellow
Evergreens, we need better numbers, at the very least for home
final score does not reflect that the Evergreens had most of the possession but
we could not make the final breakthrough and were caught by the ‘Caps
Thanks to Dave and the Rev
from Legends for showing. Zak as you’re now a regular, we’ll just
have to stop singling you out for praise and start dumping on you just like the
rest of the guys.
Kudos to Blair and try
scorer Brian for making it over from the Sunshine Coast. JR
we miss ya – IT’S PRETTY QUIET WITHOUT YOU!!
Bill put on quite the
amazing post-game meal. Roast beef
no less!! There was a terrific buzz in the clubhouse and we had more visitors
show up to celebrate Jack Stokes 60th birthday.
A full house no less!
Jack won Man of the Match
nomination from the Evergreens and Man of the Match nomination from the Snowcaps
(FIX!!!). Well, he did actually
play for both sides during the game.
As is customary, he had to compete in a Boat Race…..this time with
himself!! Double fisting appears to come naturally to him and he managed quite
well to simultaneously pound back two beers. Well done Jack and a Happy
By the way, congratulations
also to our newest Evergreen, Sonny. He welcomed a bouncing baby daughter into
the world just last week. Yes, he was looking a little red-eyed on Sunday!! Congratulations to you and your family
from all of us!!
This week-end coming up we
are combining with the Legends at Connaught Park playing the Abotsford
So come on out players and
let’s have some more fun in the muck!!
