25 Oct -YCAC Mixed XV 14, London Japanese 54 & XV 64, All France 14

Simon “Rabbit Hole” Ryan put the YCAC Blue up 7-0 by converting his own try in the early minutes of the match. The scoreboard was then all London Japanese (they took a photo of it!) till Maui set up Kuri with a late try. Not believing their luck, the London Japanese quickly left the club to celebrate.

Fraser Jamieson (who bought penalty meters and sold his own try minutes) opened the scoring in the second match with a 30 meter penalty kick. Chris McWilliam began the try scoring romp, touching down after receiving a lovely inside pass from Kieron Dwyer. Paul “Paco” Smith and Go Kawai scored off Ben Kiggell won lineout balls deep in French territory. Paco scored another try in the second half, after deciding taking on four French defenders was a better option than using his numbers to the left and passing to either Erich or Ben.
Possession was plentiful for the YCAC, in part the result of flankers, Rob Jee and Paco, foraging for the ball all afternoon. James “the Peacock” Rogers scored (Arthur, you might want to ask for details), before the backline decided to take matters into their own hands. Wingers Go Ito and Maui ” Wowie” Magele scored two tries a piece in the second half, usually after they had been touched by several YCAC hands (and a couple of French ones in the rucks). The center tandem of Chris and Kieron (both shaking off a bit of rust initially) set the tone with crisp running and passing. Maui’s devastating tackling, was ultimately too much for the French, who put up the white flag. Maui, incidentally, turned down a late call up for Samoa against the Poms to play his first match for the YCAC! Hooker James Bohan-Bollox-Buttocks-Tiffany-Pitt scored two lovely tries, leaving the skipper as the only front row foward to get shut out.
Man of the Match was Chris McWilliam, who can put down a bourbon and coke faster than a beer.
