Tom McGuigan's new look Eye Gouge were particularly composed before the game. A quiet club- renowned for speed, a silky midfield and massive ruckman. Ex-Captain Max Kohane stalked the sidelines in a fever- when he wasn't eating his hand, he went off like Dogman on ACA ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XNlgwUNKjs ) . Meanwhile Sabo snuck in the rooms for a quiet rev-up and took a quiet viewing spot in front of the Tote bench, kinda like a quiet coach that yells. The East are the best starters in the RPFL and the worst finishers. They slammed an early goal only to be held goalless until the games dying minutes, ruing the missed opportunities. Tote captain Banjo's run off the half back set up several attacks and the gold class forwards made sure it was a comfortable win.
The Labour did it tough in its first game- club CEO Rob Anderson tore a calf in the first quarter and Captain Cam "Lucky" Smith hurt himself putting his shorts on. This reportedly cut the bench to 2 players-making it virtually impossible to win when the fitness levels are fair shades of shithouse. Tough to judge The Pain in light of their stuttered start, and Bats Captain Snoop Mitchell declares his club is not getting ahead of themselves. The Bats set their sights for the glittery fantasy: an in-form Unicorn.
Overall- the perfect day to welcome in the season-Thanks to Snoop and Banjo, the 2 new clubs, Joel Old Bar, the umps, Trevor, goal umps Andy Fants, Sabo and the dude in the ECSR t shirt- the groundstaff as well as The North Old Boys for letting us in. There were no ambulances, no fights and no dickheads. Let's keep it that way.
