After weeks of training, my club team, Mt Wellington U14's league team had our first hit out against a willing Bay Roskill team, we went out to Block house bay and played tough footy, with our valuble forwards 'Wayjo' getting injured in the first minute and another hard working forward 'George' and myself both getting sent off because of bleeding noses. The team basiclly played with only 11 players for most of the game.
The opposition were quite big, but as part of playing league you got to think to yourself 'Size doesn't matter'. We managed to get their big men tired beating them 10-16. All of our team played quite well with good, tough defence it was a pretty good start to the season. Our first real game game for the season is this week so we'll prepare for it. We really enjoyed the game and can't wait for the season to get under way. (TIGERS WON!!!)
