    Geez it’s depressing when quite a few of the ‘old boys’ are still younger than me



  • Billy and Piri? Playing prop?

    Still, there's some guys there I used to look up to as a "kid" coming into club rugby. Mind you there's some in that second side that were "kids" when I was the old guy.



  • I hope the ref keeps a close eye on Woodhouse. 😉



  • @Bovidae Woodhouse better hope Rodney isn't keeping a close eye on him! 🙂

    I presume the Parliamentarians that I recognise - Mitchell, Woodhouse and O'Connor are going to have somewhat ceremonial duties.

    Quite a lot of those ex-pro rugby players in the opposition could still smash the crap out of those old guys if they were so inclined. 🙂



  • @Chris-B I suspect that Mitchell can look after himself. He ain't no shrinking violet despite his age.



  • Coach: Andy Leslie, Earl Kirton
    Waterboy: Ken Laban

    I missed that bit, but will be the ceremonial duties.

    Assume Earl will still have the same scarf.

    It's surgically attached

    Not with Ofisa Tonu’u in the side...



  • Few names added by the looks.

    Richard Watt (Poneke)

    Only just realised it was 24 years ago that I was in the centurions playing against him. Over two decades ago. Fuuuuuck



  • @Bones 10 and 11 used to play for HOBM didn't they



  • @Toddy yeah Russia and Bradshaw (when he wasn't playing ball). And 19, 20!

    Trev used to watch most of our games too. I think Paul Rolton coached us?



  • @antipodean That NZ Parliamentary team should switch to league - they're approaching NRL standard(s)!

    I had no idea they were ironic! What does that even mean?
