Evergreens Over 40 Rugby Club, Brockton Pavilion Rugby Field, Stanley Park, Vancouver BC CANADA
The day was best summed up 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
The 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
60th Birthday from all!!
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 Abbotsford Originals.
So come on out players and let’s have some more fun in the muck!!
