Congratulations to Nat on his well deserved entry into the Hall of Flame.

Nat on Boxing Day

Nat on Boxing Day

Nats’ performance on the pitch has really improved over the past year. His tireless effort and boundless energy are an inspiration and constant reminder to fellow Dodderers of bygone years.

Following Nats’ boundless try scoring this week, we had a discussion on exactly when Nat became better than his Dad.

After our consultation of the handicapping chart we decided that Nat finally made the grade when he was awarded man of the match at last years Doddering bowl tournament.

Spicy play for post Valentine’s match

February 16, 2009 4 comments

As our President Foz put it – “It’s a bit Spicy today….I like it”
Your Captain doesn’t know if it was post Valentines frustrations or poor England performance vs. Wales; but today’s play was definitely more Spicy, Vociferous, and Argumentative than over the last few weeks. It all started with a short Big Game, but as the late-commers drifted in we quickly decided to make it a four team league….

Foz as ever was keen to make sure the sides were as balanced as possible…and after the usual negotiation (you’ve got all the fast ones…. and we want Tom or Dick) the teams were laid to rest, and we went our ways in our league.

Off to a fast Start…. the league games were fast paced and not without the Hard Touches we have come to expect. early on your Captain managed to dummy Tom which resulted in smiles all round – except Tom who protested he’d had plenty to drink at the Valentines ball the night before…

Kiwi was the star turn of the day – scoring ten tries or so…which is something we have come to expect so twenty would be required for a Hall-of-Flame mention. On a number of occasions Kiwi vented his frustration with the quality of passing or the speed of passing the ~@~& ball out to him.

Postman Pat was on good vocal form – often sparring with George who both seem to spend plenty of time discussing the virtues of the “Referees’ Decision”. At one point Nick managed a minor injury by falling and hitting Pats’ arse….probably enough said about that.

Jordan was making a good impression and managed to wrong foot his Dad (Chris) on a number of occasions. Foz, Dick and Rich were all in characteristically good form. Your Captain even managed a couple of switches with Dick!

After the League which was won by Foz’s team (See Fridges comment below)  Tom, Rod, Kiwi and Fridge….we settled down to a big game, which carried on for some time, and was particularly energetic given the previous hours exertions.
We must have needed it…and with fustrations vented we left at nearly 10am – which could almost be a record for duration on a Sunday morning….

….Once again already looking forward to next week…don’t forget to bring the attitude!

Sundays blazing performance

After a long and lengthy recovery from a mysterious virus, Nick has shown us all what successful Doddering is all about. Spurred on by his Lucky ‘Leeds RFU no. 7 scrum-half away shirt’  (sadly not a Dodderers one) Nick sped to an all time record of 7 –  yes SEVEN tries in the Sunday league!

Congratulations to Nick on his entry into the Hall of Flame…

Nick at Doddering Bowl 2008

Nick at Doddering Bowl 2008

Nick seen here celebrating after being on last summers winning side in the Doddering Bowl was surprised at his own performance on the pitch. 
In a post match interview, Nick put his success down to a reduction in Lager intake the night before, down from the usual Nine to Seven. So its seven all round for the lucky Nick.
Buy a lottery ticket Nick before its too late – suggest anything with a 7 in it  7, 17, 27, 37,47 and maybe a 9 for the Lagers you would have drunk, or a 2 for the two you didn’t drink.

 

Tim yet again is really upping his game and at some times during Sundays proceedings found himself being marked by up to three players as his turn of pace and ability to catch the long pass (whilst being in an overlap situation) meant that the opposition had to make sure he was closed down.

Last but not least is the mention of Postman Pats’ scything run past your hapless Captain who at that moment must have been thinking about food or sleep or something else, as he was powerless to do anything about Pats turn of speed.

Roll on next week….
