22 Nov – YCAC Gents XV 28, Sunday League All-Stars 34 & YCAC First XV 63, Sunday League All-Stars 7

The Gents were outplayed in the first half of their match against the Sunday League All Stars II’s. Trailing 24-7 (our try by Nike), the Gents started to put things together and clawed their way back into contention. Tries by Lindsey, Sushi, and Big Masa got the lads back in the game, however a late opposition try put the final margin at 34-28 for the All Stars II’s.

In the first team game, the All Stars were expecting a walk in the park after convincingly beating the YCAC 40-8 a year ago. Still smarting from his stag do, the skipper described last year’s match as “a spanking” during the aftermatch function. However, this year the YCAC returned the favor, unloading on the All Stars I’s for a 63-7 ass whipping. It’s easier to mention who didn’t score tries, which I believe was limited to the front row and Gareth (who was preoccupied with the pending birth of his son Dylan, who arrived on Tuesday morning nearly ready for his first game – congrats!). Tiffany’s mate – A Dam Honor and Jamoe’s mate – Harry Scro Tum filled in admirably for backrowers, Rob Jee (who re-injured his wrist in a bizarre wanking accident) and Yoshi “missing in action” Amano. After converting only 3 of 11 tries, the kicking auditions will continue this Sunday. Jonny, are you available?
