Making the rules count

This weekends Dodderery was a bit of an eye opener. Your Captain has been pondering something that happened during the Big Game we had at the end of the usual mini league.

For some reason – we appointed a number of Referees, who enforced the rules to a level we are not used to. Your captain has noticed in the past that many fellow Dodderers are not too keen on the ‘big game’ we sometimes have at the end of our session due to not actually getting the ball, or feeling that the game is poor (which is code for “I didn’t get the ball”).
Our big game with a referee and eight-a-side really opened up because of the enforcement of 10yds at kickoff (and infringements) and 5 yards for a rollback. Gone were the cries of pass the ball, and this isn’t much fun….to be replaced with some fantastic Rugby, spirited run throughs and some all round good play.

So from now on to get the most out of our Sundays’ we should all work hard to enforce the rules even when we don’t have a referee…

Special mentions this week:-

George deserves two mentions this week: Firstly George always throws himself into tackles with real conviction but this week was an exception – he was obviously suffering from excess energy as he threw himself into some amazing diving touches onto a fairly hard pitch. Secondly George made an equally amazing quadruple dummy to score past two opponents. Interestingly the last two dummy were not actually required but looked great.

Toby was on fighting from with amazing energy and excellent play.
Felix for just turning up, and scoring the winning try in the ‘Big Game’ at the end.

If any Dodderers fancy a mid week run-out then the Thursday evening sessions have begun at 7.00pm. Your Captain has noticed an immediate improvement in his fitness having increased his workouts from by 100% from one to two a week!

See you Sunday!

    Skip, have you got your form and from confused? Have you been up late preparing bandanas? To set the record straight though, I think Felix missed the final tackle that allowed the winning score!!
