High Hopes Bear Fruit
The second stanza commenced, same as the first with Makaroff, revelling in his return, reacting quickly to a penalty and short tap and 22 – 5 lead. Isaac Olsen then ran a sharp line and Alistair Howes finished and it was one way traffic, 29 – 5. The Black Sheep then stiffened and crossed for their second tally, 29 – 12. As prognosticated, Devillers ‘showed up’ with a big jink and crossing for his maiden with Ceedub, 36 – 12. With the bench emptying and foot off the gas, Port clambered their way back and it was shortly, 36 – 26, as always, the Baa-baas, not giving in! Another prophetic fulfilment saw newbie, Coward off the pines, widening matters, 43 – 26. CW looked disinterested as Port ended the day’s proceedings, 43 – 31, seven tries to five.
Thanks to today's, M-i-M and to the Port for their customary, great hospitality. 'onyas, all.
Late-breaking - CW's Premier Women had an equally successful outing at Comox, bringing home the bacon with a 49 - 29 W. Hats off and thanks to Maddy Graham with a hat-trick in her last game with Ceedub. All the best as you head off to Uni at Oregon.
