Finishing Touch (2012)
A 10-5 second victory over our main rivals – those infernal BaaBaas – 3 weeks ago meant that the title was very much ours to lose. A 10-3 victory over the Chairman’s Choice followed and then last night a 13-4 win against the Leprechauns (with even yours truly contributing a couple of close range tries) sealed the deal.
I have to say that once more it’s been an absolute pleasure and the fact that a team that comprised a bunch of 40-somethings and teenagers was able to triumph shows what a great game Touch is.
Sadly it appears that this victorious year will be no more than a blip. Our two 18 year olds disappear next year – to university and travelling respectively – which potentially leaves us bereft of strike runners. I see a winter of recruitment ahead!
