Vets keep 100% winning record

Touring is tough both on and off the field for Rushden

Another good performance from the Veterans in Magenta & Black on Saturday keeping our 100% winning record intact for the season.

Good performance from all the front 5 helped keep their large weighty pack at bay all game,

Allowing the younger members of the team to spread the ball wide and run in the tries plus Julian!

I had one to many on Saturday after the game and into the night so can’t remember what the exact score was

But I’m guessing at 60-10? Any takers on this?

Good to see Ian ‘Baby Faced Assassin’ Rose & Carl ‘Horse’ Tysom back playing at Aylesbury.

With Rosie the younger playing fly half all game I could hear the front row union going into dispute over this and calling its members to go on strike! Anyone got the number for ACAS?

Carl still has his equine pace, running in a few long distance tries but has also added catching to his game!

Could be an interesting race for fastest Vet title between him & Greg…….

As this wasn’t a proper Vets team we were playing we added a number of colts to bolster our side.

With pace & enthusiasm of youth added to the old timers class the outcome was inevitable and never in doubt.

Quite a few impressive performances from the youngsters but I’m sure they learnt a valuable lesson of letting the ball do the work, keep passing, keep it alive or use your pace and run at space rather than running into a big f*t lump in front of you!

Hope Richie Cardboard's hand is ok after more damage substantial by him on the field of play.

Maybe he will have to be downgraded to Richie Paper-Mach’e after this one.

Highlight of the day was Gerald’s face/reaction when receiving the Armadillo from the management for sliding on the pitch without permission & dropping the ball over the line.
