Elite 11 - 0 Petone
Saturday rolls around and it’s Game Day!
It's a gorgeous day for football
The pitch is ready:
Ganes wakes up hungover:
Niall jumps into his car and heads off to the game:
CJ does his hair:
Damo quickly talks some business with associates:
Decs gets in his pre game stretches:
Pat misses homes:
Clem has breakfast:
And so does Roger:
Tim and Louis realise they aren’t both playing today:
Stu pushes through the injuries stronger than ever:
Rori warms up his whistle:
The opposition organise enough people for a futsal game:
Adam shows no mercy:
While Ross introduces himself to the opposition keeper:
Dave remains injured on the sidelines:
And Crespo talks himself up:
Steve watches on unseen:
I could talk about Ross continuing his goal scoring form and reaching 26 for the season, or Clem roofing it expertly not once but twice, or CJ standing wide open screaming for the ball, or Roger demonstrating exactly where the keeper is standing by giving him the ball each time he shot.
But instead I think after that game the one issue that really needs addressing is to point Niall to: this
We are here for you buddy.
2 - Ross - I guess he got a goal or made a tackle or something.
2 - Tim - Owned the hell out of that side of the park and shut down both Doug and Louis hard.
1 - Damo - Broke up play and shut down any chance they had. Two goal saving diving headers and given his goal scoring chances you wouldn't have even known he didn't get a run up front.
1 - Roger - Spent the first half whpping in crosses and running his arse off. Even got his goal in the end - but I mean you did have enough chances!
