The Super 3’s were again on the road
Waterloo & Mitch | 16.07.21
The Super 3's were again on the road, this time heading to the seaside town of Havant on the south coast the play the Pirates of Portsmouth fame.
The vast majority of the squad assembled early at Waterloo station, where the Ultimate Ressie had arrived an hour before departure already in his footy shorts & lathered in 1 and a half tubes of deep heat. Deags was unable to attend after also playing away the night before and having to catch a later train.
A few coffees, a hot chocolate and an oat milk banana smoothie passed the time in the food court and after destroying the disabled toilet at the worlds most grim shopping complex since Town Centre in Gosford, the squad arrived at Warblington School ready to rip & tear.
Buoyed by the late additions of Harry Pearce and Plattsy, who owned the paddock kicking 3 despite on the day having hands like a digital watch, optimism was high.
30 seconds in Xavier Holland started an aggressive push & shove match with his marker. Grub. In more wholesome action Big Cam was a beast on the forward line kicking 2 while Clarkey was immense, kicking 3 including one needle thread from the boundary line. Nice to see a Tasmanian leave the island & do good things.
Elsewhere on the field Eion O'Murchu was elite across forward and back, and survived an attempt to remove his head via fist whilst taking a mark in the 1st quarter from their token Aussie that was an absolute lunatic. Zazu in his first match as skipper was incredible in all aspects, except kicking the ball through the sticks.
Terry was reliable & controlled the backline all day as always. Death, taxes, Xav doing a long winded and boring speech & Unitt putting in a 9/10 game. Certainties.
Big Luke Rawson kicked his first major and now officially has more goals than hair follicles, joining the illustrious company of those sniping the Ultimate's goals. Credit to Nich for throwing his frame around in the guts with no regard for it and Paul Hawkins in his first game as well as Gav patrolling the forward line like the O'Neills staff on a Saturday evening in the back room.
The boys got the job done comfortably in the end and enjoyed a few well earned froths, pumped out some sing songs on train home and did our best to leave our mark on South Western railways.
Special mentions go to James Deagan for his first point for the club, the Ultimate Ressie for almost scoring a goal again and Jonesy for just being there.
Onto the Emus next week.
