Just back from the Rec, where it finished ‘Haven 0-14 Lions, and the first time for eleven years, we’ve won our opening league game!
The pitch was heavy, so free-flowing football was never gonna happen, but converted tries early doors in each half, put us on the way to a good win.
We’ll play better sides than Charlton’s Crew during the forthcoming campaign, but to nil anyone at any level is an achievement in itself.
With nine minutes left, one of the hosts, along with Rhodri Lloyd for us, were despatched to the sin-bin, for engaging in a bit of pugilism, and we were down to eleven for the last five minutes, when Mickey Butt was yellow carded for holding down.
A pen right on the hooter stretched the lead to fourteen points, and the 150 or so of us came back down the M6 as happy bunnies.
Dews at home is the next date in our diary.
" ---- and then on the eighth day, God created Rugby League."
