LMD All Stars vs Perilous Pythons
The unbeaten streak starts...
Thank you to our main sponsors, Premex and A2F Ankle to Foot Clinic, for their continued support.
The warmup began with a sense of optimism, something that had been missing over the past few weeks. The phrase of ‘must win’ game was overused as usual, were we missing the wise words of supreme leader Bayliss? Worries of our newly appointed scrumhalf were also apparent, how would this influence the well-oiled mechanisms of the LMD mean machine?
The game began in stereotypical fashion, Cam targeting the knee joint of any python infidel and the whole team showing some great ambition to play. Some silky running saw us move into an early lead as Owen Morris went over for the score. However, the conversion was unsuccessful.
A cool head was demonstrated by Mr Lane with some wise words in the warm up and early into the match. However, the same could not be said as the game progressed. A minor scuffle gave the referee an opportunity to play with his cards, Mr Lane was sent to the bin after repeatedly asking a Python infidel to headbutt him. Not too sure about that? Aside from this peculiar incident, Mr lane did ‘let the boys play’ with plenty of wide passes and some big ‘ol kicks.
Second score was some excellent team play finished by some lovely support from Phil, well played Phil. However, the conversion was to be unsuccessful. Recurring theme? Please continue reading.
Third score came from some weird bloke who bleaches his hair, well played. Some say he tries too hard? I say no. Tom found himself in space after some great work by the forwards to secure quick ball. He proceeded to pull down the pants of the python fullback with some above average footwork to cross the whitewash. However, the conversion was SUCCESSFUL. Things were looking up for LMD. Shouts of ‘gone to the dogs’ were no-where to be heard.
Several penalties and two particularly boring scores from the P-p-p-pythons narrowed the margin, as LMD took their foot off the gas. This made for an uneasy final 20.
Following an excellent scrum, I enjoyed a clumsy blind side run against some rather sloppy tackling to push us into a 7-point lead. Our now ever-reliable kicker, Ali Ramsey, stepped up to hammer over the conversion.
Small but mighty contributions came from BFD in the dying embers of the game, he was unfortunately overpowered by a large Python foot soldier within minutes of coming on. Dave was unable to continue as his wound required stitches (or glue as Dave is a ‘pussy’(1))
Medicals of Leeds 29 The Pythons 20.
*I will continue to crush Harry Bens soul with sub-par grubber kicks for as long as humanly possible*
**Glad you could make the end of the game drew, hope you are well**
MOTM - Cam Macleod
DOTD - Lane and Bennett fight for it. Unfortunately no headbutts for Lane.
