10am. Sunday Morning. 13th January. 2008. Something felt different. 19 young Spartans eagerly stood waiting to do battle on a pitch that could only be compared to something that a ‘D’ listed celebrity would have to wade through during a ‘bush tucker trial’ on ‘I’m a celebrity get me out here’. Never-the-less these 19 young men were ready for action having not played together for over 5 weeks. The lack of Rugby had obviously effected them more than they cared to admit. Baildon turned up with a strong squad of players including one young lady that informed the Spartans coach that she was wearing her fathers body armour – yes she was a big’un. The whistle blew for the first game and a well disciplined Spartans outfit dominated the game and won. Two superably taken tries by the Bull and one by the ever present and determined Bobs secured what was a well fought out victory. Baildon were given two tries at the end by a ref that was trying to even up the final score but no matter the victory belonged to the Spartans.

The second game commenced and an evenly fought out encounter tuck place for the majority of the game, however the presence of one particular player for Baildon managed to steer her team to a 4 – 2 victory. Two marvellous tries were scored by the Spartans that would have deserved to win the game on any other day. The first by Ireland who played marvellously throughout and who scored a wonderful try of his own making. The second by Africa who scraped up the ball in his own half and sprinted like a springbok down the left flank to score in the corner. Comparisons with the great Habana justifiable.

Mixed emotions after the final whistle having won one and lost one but on the whole a great way to start the new year. Looking forward to next weekend.
