Sometimes a single incident occurs on a rugby field that is so momentous that all other events of the day fade into insignificance. On Saturday, such a momentous event occurred and has inspired your reporter to record the event in poetry,
An Ode to a Prop: “No Bagel for Freezer”
Truly a quiet and gentle man is Erich Friess
(Except if he drinks – then you must call the Police!)
Each weekend he loves  to play with his chums
And lend his sizeable bulk to rucks, mauls, and scrums
In this idyllic life only one thing is awry
Despite his endeavours Erich just cannot score a try
Each night dreams of bagels haunt him in his sleep
The idea of another tryless season enough to make him weep
But against Minporen surely he could break the drought
As this match was always going to be a rout
And surely enough, in a game with points galore
Freezer at long last managed a solitary score
Taking a pass from his captain when over the line
Erich finally entered the try-scorers shrine
And put to rest his tortured psyche
No doughnut for Freezer: just one for Nike!
