What a week. The boys have now lost two games and won 5, against teams from All over each Melbourne district. To put this in some perspective one of the district association we played, selects there team from over 30 club teams in Under 16’s competition. We on the other hand select from 5 teams. Not a bad effort if I don’t say so my self. Currently the lads are in second place, they played what might only be best described as a fucking shitfull game yesterday and lost. BUT, they bounced back today and won what was a make or break game really. So now we are in the semi finals on Friday.
Like a lot of comps, 1st place will play 4th place and 2nd place will play 3rd. We are in the latter. They should win, on paper and on field they are ranked by word of mouth as the best side in the comp. What’s even more interesting is our ground is the nest we have played on as well. And this leads me into another observation and discussion as a distraction of sorts.
I watched the 20/20 cricket on at the Gabba last night( Brisbane’s cricket and Footy Ground) and was DISGUSTED at the surface condition of the ground. OUR ground in the god dam bush is better and I shit you not. To have a international surface displayed to the world in that condition is nothing short of criminal. Both management and the ground staff at the GABBA want taking out and rooting with a sleeper post and NO LUBE for that one.
Its not like Brizzy land has had no RAIN lately. F Me, poor form does not even come close on this one, I do hope the players complain about the surface because what I sore last night was simply fucked, rooted and beyond a joke. Maybe JB needs to do a blunty on this one….
Anyways, the young fella is not doing too well with the bat but his Wicket keeping is Simply wicked, elegant and QUICK, but I did not say that. Another stumping today as well. The whole team played at their best today in the field in simply trying conditions, it was 32 at about 0900 on the ground in the SHADE. But they did well. All things being good I shall be pissed a mute on Sunday because they won…Cross ya fingers.
