Bad clichés and worse nicknames


Bishopston RFC Vs B.A.C RFC

After an impressive win away to the doctors BAC travelled to Bishopston hoping for a repeat performance and we did partly.
Full of confidence, we went in with our new warm up routine basically anyone over 30 stretching in the hope nothing snaps during the game and anyone under 30 practicing drop goals from various areas on the pitch.
The start however was awful, maybe it was a small Italian man in the bushes of the Bawa on a Tuesday taking notes of our tactics or maybe we were just rubbish.

Whatever it was we found ourselves down 3 tries to nil early on. I think they just wanted it more.
After this we did actually start to play more like the BAC of last week, rolling mauls working very well and defence a bit sharper.
BAC finally got on the scoresheet, a good lineout, short drive and a decent backs move with James 'loves a marinated onion' Dinning giving a lovely bounce pass for Mark 'The Furnace' Furze finishing off. Conversion missed surprisingly.

Some other stuff happened....

Half time came and the moment tony had been waiting for, his Hero, inspirational former captain and all round top guy Nathan 'Tony's hero' Flynn was back on the pitch, along with Jeremy 'how does he get that low when he tackles' Gaisford.

With a surprisingly calm half time talk, BAC finally started playing how we know we can, it was certainly a game of 2 half's.
Scrums, mauls and rucking were working very well, special mention for Robbie' turnover king' Wilton, moving up to the front row smashing his opposite number and probably should have had loads of turnovers given. This guy really gives 110% every week!
Back line was working well in attack and defence, Nick 'was slim when he 1st joined the club' Lewis finished off a move (I think can't really remember).
3rd try was a push over scrum Nathan 'crumble back' Moore, conversion slotted by Sam 'needs kicking practice instead of rucking drills on a Tuesday' Sheppard 4th try was a short line taken by Flynn pace and power, beating a few defenders, nice finish, less said about the conversion the better!
We were making a comeback, great drift defensive line, Frans 'loves a vest all year round' Smit did everything right, pushed the attack towards the touchline, got into a perfect tackle position then thought he was in the WWE and executed a perfect clothesline, yellow card for him!
They made the extra man count and scored a couple of tries at the end.

Final Result--- Bishopston 42-22 BAC

MOTM- Robert Wilton
DOTD- Sam Sheppard

Overall the lads did fantastically well, gave 110% and at the end of the day there are no easy games.
