Tyldesley Third XV - Report
|Tyldesley 3||8||vs||12||Oldham 4|
There's a new sheriff in town...
Saturday 29th October saw oldham travel to the sleepy town of tyldesley, mountain men, gunslingers, cattle fettlers and the like
the good townsfolk of tyldesley boarded up their doors and windows.
tony o malley went into hiding after hearing of the size of the oldham pack,and our scrum halves back went again lifting some pies out of the fridge, on a plus note after 4 days wussy finally got off the roundabout and was available again.
Talking of records our mighty prop matt set a new record of props travelling from the changing room to the pitch, the previous record was set in 1934 by a monster of a man called w g jones,
big matt knocked 10 mins of jonesy time, getting onto the pitch in only 43 minutes, from changing room 6 as well.
the mighty chippendale looking tyldesley pack started a bit slowly in blusterous conditions getting into a arm wrestle with the oldham cowboys, after a bit of sustained pressure bongs were awarded a penalty, daz newt converting 3-0.
with a game plan of get it to the backs quickly, the tyldesley pack kept the ball and tussled with the opposition.
when suddenly the oldham 8 won the ball and broke for the line, with fireman sam chasing, macca was left with a nerve shredding desecion tackle the huge oldham man or hit fireman sam jimbob who was a lot smaller , bosch macca put in a great hit on er jim , leaving a clear path to the line except for the hobbit gully who was standing his ground, after a short ride on the 8s ankle oldham scored 5-3.
the rest of the half was a bit scrappy with no more scores, partly to do with the great tackling of both sets of players.
the second half kicked off and soon after a great move from oldham with the ball passing through hands they scored again and converted 12-3.
this seemed to kick start bongs into a series of raids into the oldham half throwing everything they could at them, with faz finally getting quick ball after good forward play the ball was passed down the back line [ yes even daryl passed ] to Mike Goddard who was making his debut, to score in the corner.great try
with a difficult kick daz narrowly missed by 30 yards
bongs were now hammering the oldham line but couldn't get the winning score
in frustration our withered winged warrior wussy decided to start a fight with billy the kid [ who soon sorted him out ]
after continued pressure the final whistle went, 12-8 to oldham.
a special mention to pete mannion who reffed the game for us at very short notice
tit of the week was close again
macca for tackling jim
dave [ stone cold steve austin ] goodwin,
for calling a ste varley cuckoo linecall
but the winner for a second time had to be Frazier for a very poor attempt at downing a pint 56mins, this absolutely disgusted Dave[ rab ] channel who is still talking about it today.
motm went to Jim Hutton for some solid defence and strong running.
ryan would like to thank everyone who turned out for a great head wetting session on saturday night,
the highlight being dean trying to teach a very drunk Ryan how to dance to ravey wavey music on the dance floor, you just had to be there to witness our pi--ed up hooker with a large jug of purple haze trying to copy deano HILARIOUS.
