Today a home fixture against Melbourne rfc I have been missing for the last 12months and despite rumours of my where abouts I have been fighting against covid forces.They were finally defeated last week at the battle of Rons Cafe,thanks to much needed help from the Austen Brothers and the regulars of The Tom Hoskins pub.

The main conversation consisted of how cold the wind was and what Daisy Hunter 10 months thought of it all,by the look on her face not a lot.Jenny Burrows then put an end to the proceedings,final score Belgrave 12 Melbourne 7.Yet again Belgrave hanging on for a fingertip win for the second week running
It must be added that Dave Smith of Melbourne won the prize for being the smartest turned out in his blazer and tie.
