13 Nov – YCAC Gents XV 27, All France 19 & YCAC First XV 78, Korya 0

Gents Tries: Luke Raimo (2), Ben Ruddy, Simon Ryan and Ben Duncan; Conversions: Fraser Jamieson (1)
Man of the Match: Ben Duncan

The Firsts were up against Koryo, a Japanese-Korean team, on the weekend. Rather than a match report here are some awards that summarise the game:
Step-up award: Morgan, stepping-up from the Gents, proved that Australians havn’t quite lost their desire to win and slotted in admirably into the Firsts’ forward pack.
Numbers’ award: Ben Patu for scoring a truckload of points and more phone numbers post-game than all the boys put together ( The Superglue he uses in his hair Im sure has somehing to do with it all ) ..and also for being able to read his watch and being on time for once.
Richard Addey “Choke” Award: Remiscent of Greg Norman, the All Blacks and an Australian women’s rower, Dopey Dan Clark once again proved he has a phobia of the tryline. Rather than making a couple of dwarf-like steps to cross an open line while a one legged, half blind Korean chased him he flung the ball wide when the voices in his head calling “man on” became too much.
Try of the day: One of the tries Bjorn Robertson either stole for himself in his bag of five or one of the tries that never eventuated when Bjorn decided to run out or just fall down, instead of passing.
Korean Barbeque award: In Maui’s absence Jameo Rogers has stepped into the role of human skewer impaling at least one of the hapless opposition and serving them up Korean style.
Something About Mary Award: Dopey Clark picks up his second award as his desicion to wear boxers during the game left his scrum half reliving the famous Ben Stiller pre-prom scene from Something about Mary over and over.
Old Skool Award: Koryo, the opposition, for bringing only 15 players like the good old days and, despite the best efforts of YCAC to diminish their numbers, all lasting the distance.
Man of the Match: The Million Dollar Man, Scott Pierce, whose comeback on a reconstructed bionic knee turned the Koreans on their heels and packing back to Pyongyang on numerous occasions.
“In-size” award: Mike Brooke, proving the critics wrong, by putting in two fine efforts and alot of minutes for both the Gents and the Firsts. Well done Brookey and also Daisuke and Marcus, who played in both games also.
Cameo Award: Ben Duncan, who came onto the field in the last few minutes after a man of the match performance in the Gents. He replaced Big Chris Mac, who had also been proving the critics wrong in the last few weeks but who could not prevent a blow out this weekend. Ben’s presence inspired the team to a last minute 78-0 victory.
Tries: J.Robertson (5), D.Robertson (3), Go (1) Jameo (1), Scott Pierce (1), Ben Patu (1); Conversions: Ben Patu (8)
