Mom – Callum Webb
Dod – Gav Minty
First game of 2016, the mighty 5’s take on the 4’s yahs. Upon arriving at Peffs we were destined for a rough day on pitch, fresh Webb in classic fashion forgets the ball bag, hampering any warm up attempts.

An unsuccessful appeal led to a points deduction that saw the team crash from 3rd in the table to a lowly 8th, three points off the coveted 4th position. To make matters worse, the side were facing Kelburne, a team they had never taken a point off in Graham Moodie’s 7 years in charge.
