The Chaplain brings news of a good outing by The Mighty Thurds in the Hub City this past Sabbath. It was loss #2 but a close battle. Perhaps poor handling was a causal factor but plenty of positives from the exercise.
With the “Saskatoonies” (Siz and Coop) and Queenie making their season debuts, the side received an instant boost. Queenie was a threat all match, crossing for a couple of tallies with a combo of power and skill. The “Wee One” aka Coop, also crossed for a brace. Between his elusiveness and the fact that he is so small, it’s a challenge to spot him, causing plenty of problems for the defense from scrums and rucks!
Finally, a special shout out to BIG Danny Partridge. Dan is showing constant improvement in the sets with each outing and his solid runs were also noted. Next up, it’s Comox this coming Sabbath, 1:00 p.m. at Windsor. Chaplain Matt calls for a solid squad for the challenge and a good effort to notch the first W. Vespers will be post-game at The Temple.
