Sundays Doddering

Sunday was a great day for Doddering….
The weather was great…we had a new junior member…and the Rick Flick is gaining in popularity…

Your Captain was up and ready by six o’clock – mostly because he couldn’t sleep but also in anticipation of a mornings Dodderery. Normally he would have had ‘more than a few’ the night before which helps with the usual lie-in until seven, but with an hour or so to burn and having serviced the wife with a cup of tea, still managed to be around 5 minutes late for kickoff…

Upon arrival – a new junior member – Dan – ‘Son of Simon’ was present and ready to go!
But wait a fully ready to go new member – with speed, agility and his fathers ability to jump into a high pass!  At one point he out ran Dan – ‘The Ferret’  to score a try – excellent – more please!

In last weeks’ blog we mentioned the ‘Rick Flick’ as demonstrated by Rich (who this week was the spy in the camp for forthcoming Dodderers vs. Old ruckers match). The Rick Flick seems to be catching on with a number of successful attempts to launch a ball in the wrong direction. This is truly in the spirit of Dodderering … Well done Rich!

Kiwi was just not in best form this week…he did manage to demonstrate the turn of speed we all expect from him, but unfortunatley most of the time he was rooted to the spot. Normally we see this behaviour from fellow Dodderers in the first few weeks’ of morning sun where everyone seems to be in slow motion (including your Captain) but by now this should have passed. In true Doddering fashon this is entirely acceptable if as we suspect, Kiwi was putting a few away the night before!

Following the usual four team Tournament we had a Big game with eight a side so plenty of people were staying on. Following the big game we had Dodderers extra with four a side where we played best of 5 as by then we were definately low on energy.

Your Captain is unfortunately unable to attend next Sundays’ match as a couple of tickets to the British Grand Prix fell into his lap yesterday…and as this is probably going be the last at Silverstone and having not been before your Captain has relunctantly decided to pass on Doddering this Sunday. Open invitation for a new Blogger….

Roll on Thursday when we beat the Old Ruckers on their home turf and begin to reclaim the ‘Bit of Stick’ !

    I think that junior Dodds is brilliant and guarentees future generations of Doddering, but from a very selfish viewpoint, arn’t there any Dodds with Dads who would enjoy a run out? c,mon guys, share that Doddering experience, let’s get “Extra Doddery”up and running, literally!!

    Well I suppose we will all reach that stage in life when “servicing the wife” will entail “bringing her a cup of tea”…. but it’s arrived a bit early for our Skip – still I suppose that’s what the stress of leadership can do to a man………..
