The Rugby Season Starts

This one is for the guys of the Hawkesbury Valley Rugby Union Club, I’ve heard that a few of you actually read the blog, (Shunt told me about the comments made about Chan’s Slave Leia Costume), to that end, I would like to welcome as many of the new members of the club who stumble upon this in the future.
For those of you who are not aware, during the Australian winter months, I am according to their books, the First Aid Trainer, though officially I am there at the request of the club to make sure that they have someone carded with medical training in the event that it hits the fan.

Yesterday was the second of three trials games for the Club; Games played before the regular season starts, to determine numbers and aid in selection of teams for the coming year. I missed the first trial for some reason, and the Second Trial was in New Zealand… well more or less, we were on a oval on the very extreme east of New South Wales, nothing was in front of us but the Ocean, so much so that the home team advised us to not bring our good Match balls, otherwise we might lose them in the Pacific; though in the end, no balls ended up getting wet as far as I was know, it is one of the more interesting requests I have heard.

This will be my third season attached to a club that I have known my entire life. While I have been associated with the club for 22 years, I have only actively contributed to it for three, though it is a few more if you count the season or two I did when I was younger and I babysat all the little kids at the time, though most people don’t so it doesn’t matter.

Overall I think we won two and lost two on Saturday, though to be honest, I was paying more attention to the game in the event of injuries, not the score. Though baring a few issues with the turf, nothing really came to my attention.
Depending on what I do, I might do a weekly report on the weeks games. but then, I might not, who knows
