OK just a little write up of yesterday’s game…. After some last minute begging from various members of the team we managed to get 14 eager players together. We knew we would be playing 80 minutes under the kosh a man down but that did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the Saxons and that showed as our new hooker Alex got his hands on the ball and ran through a sleeping Colchester defense to score his first try for the Club ( he told me that he was promised an evening of entertainment from his wife if he scored…..so thank you Mrs Alex) the game then settled into a fantastic battle between two hardworking sets of forwards interjected by some intelligent play from the backs.
It went this way for the rest of the game and at no point did it feel like we were a man down. We lost on the last kick of the game but standing in that circle afterwards there was not one Saxon who did not have a smile on his face. This season has been one of the best I have played in and it feels like we all are playing for each other. We have one game left against Sudbury at home and there is a suggestion that pub golf maybe appropriate afterwards to cap off what has been an entertaining season for the Saxons. So if that feels like something that we want to do let me know and we will go get smashed together. Again great game yesterday lads and thank you for those who stepped up. Tony and i chose Alex as our man of the match for the shift he put in.
