Mammoths Tour Warm Up Game
Great run out for Mammoths against young opposition
Great run out today guys as a Tour Warm Up game. Despite so many away on holiday we had 15 mammoths turn up for our game against non tourists aka C.U.N.T.S. Thanks goes to the lad who turned up for opposition with Jamie Kindness, Andrew Reid, Mark Beadie, Jamie Berrisford rounding up enough players to give us old boys a lung bursting run out, and for Colin Mair doing referee. Under the sunshine at Redcloak the Tour Team were happy that we had some extra game time and especially that we ran in a total of 11 tries with 5 from Lorenz, 2 from Jim F-W, 2 from Ciaran, and 2 from Jo Robertson, against 5 tried from our opposition. Due to the advantage of youth on the opposition, Mammoths did play with a slight player number advantage.
A couple of knocks taken by Mammoths today with Neil feeling the strain in his "good" shoulder, Kenny taking a head knock, and a severe injury to Eric which required an ambulance and we know know that he has a Tibial Plateau Fracture which is basically the lower half of his knee. He is in hospital and awaiting surgery and everyone wishes him all the best and a speedy recovery.
Jamie Berrisford accepted the "Horses Ass Trophy" which now means he has to come back next year and captain the CUNTS team again, that is of course unless he is in the touring side !! 6degN Man of the Match for Mammoths was deservedly given to Lorenz who had a great game which showed in his haul of 5 tries. Andrew Reid was also given the special award for managing to take our more Mammoths players than anyone else on the pitch.
Thanks again to everyone who turned up today and here's to the 27th Aug for our tour. Please everyone make the effort to tue and sat training over the nest few weeks so we can start/keep up the fitness work !!.
