How did the games against Uni-Norths in Canberra go?
@Wazza2013, any BBQ report?
Scores from their Twitter feed:
1st Grade defeat Uni-Norths 41-7
Two Blues Reserve Grade defeat Uni-Norths 50-12
No further details.
I didn't make the trip to Canberra. Was toiling away with the working bee.
It was good to fire up the Two BLues BBQ again.
Happy with the results listed above by 2bluesfan

All ready for round 1 Saturday.
Will be there nice and early for a great day of
Well we're off and running. The weather gods looked after us all yesterday, was a sensational day, sunny, cool breeze, hopefully autumn is now upon us. This ludicrous draw has us playing the first 4 rounds at home, a 'punishment' for not having a cricket pitch in the middle of the field with a run from round 11 to 15 all away including Randwick, Manly, Warringah and Eastwood.
Randwick set the bar high early at Merrylands RSL Club Rugby Park also, in Two Blues Burger sales. Can the 3 people from MMM who'll turn up on Friday do the same? And yes, we'll be doing fish burgers.
I am extremely happy to be able read match reports for the Grade matches on the weekend. Tulls and Thommo are good writers, and Brett K (and sometimes Rachel C) are doing a great job with the photos! I know it's a tough job, but this overseas supporter appreciates it! Thanks to all at Parra who make this happen.
2016 The Year of the West. We can do this.
I too have missed the match reports.
Whenever I can't make a game. The combo of match report and photos on the website,make me feel like I haven't missed out completely.
Though whenever I don't make a game, and read thommos match report. Mrs Wazza cannot understand why I am yelling at my laptop... It's obvious , After reading Thommos report , I realise that we did no wrong and the ref was obviously against us. ( win or lose )
Hey, it's on the net it must be true ..
Well done to 2nds , 3rds 4ths and 5ths for their strong wins yesterday.
For the first time in a loooooooooonnnnnnnnnngggggggggg time I felt the volunteer staff and I had a relatively stress free day. Too hot for football no doubt, would much have preferred to be sunning myself on Elizabeth Beach, Forster with the bride but nonetheless all seemed to go ok. Wonder why it felt different?
Perhaps it was the assistance of the lower grade players who rolled their sleeves up and helped out in the canteen when it was needed the most. Thanks to Pimple and Jono.
As for the footy, 1st Grade didn't go according to plan, but we still showed some strong moments. As the team learns to gel with other we'll get stronger and stronger each week. There's plenty to work with and importantly plenty to work on. Knowing our Coaches like I do, I think they wouldn't have it any other way. They are about teaching the players the art of game management. We knew we had a lot of work to do, and we have made some great progress, but we also knew there'd be some hiccups along the way. Well done to Wests for seizing the day and best of luck for the rest of the season.
As for lower grades, it was a great day. You know when it's great when a chirpy coach has penned his match report with some poetic creativity. I loved it.
Here it is for everyone else's enjoyment.
Muncher‘Are they gunna win today’, he said?I said, ‘well I dunno’The boys trained well all through the weekBut they’ve still all got to showI was standing at the gate way toThe Rugby field at homeWith this thin, scant haired gentlemanWho keeps asking for a poem‘We’ve got three teams to play today‘In the lower grades’, said I‘Surely we’ll snag one’ he said‘Hope so’ was my reply.I looked around the park once or twiceThe players all filed inThe captains got them all preparedFor the intended historic win.Fifths played the first game of the dayAgainst a local teamWe scored real quick, then went to sleepIt’s enough to make you screamFinally the penny droppedThat it’s more fun with the ballScore and score again we didWe kept possession – that’s allFours decided to be fair againAnd let the others inDespite being the team on topIt looked like we’d not winA few well chosen words were saidNot fit to be in inkFrom our captain coach, LuiThe players finally made to thinkIt’s really not all that hardTo hold onto the pillTo play a game well organisedAnd not look like a dillThe whistle finally blew full timeParra’s five points in the leadWe’d done our best to lose itLui’s words they at last did heed‘Two from three the gent’ exclaimed‘That result was good to hear’‘Yep’ said I with some reliefAs the second game caused much fearThirds ran onto the home ground turfExpectations they were highThe first half was explosiveAs we ran in many a try.The opposition had no answerTo the onslaught that we heapedUntil the second half came ‘roundAnd we went to bloody sleepWe need to learn that games are wonAnd lost in final playsWe need to keep the pedal downTo ensure our winning waysThere was no scare in this eventToo far in front were weBut in a closer contestUnhappy we might be‘How good d’ya feel’ the gent inquiredNot talking ‘bout my health‘Three from three’ he said with gleeThe smile all ‘bout his mouthChristini’s, the one I’d like to tell,That in third grade did arriveFinally a thing called structureAnd that I’m still alive
Is that the poetic genius Mark Tully? Brilliant!
A thanks to BellyTwoBlues for last weekend.
I was down the coast with no internet or TV access.
To keep me informed ,BellyTwoBlues txt me a try by try update.
The work of a GM is never done. Thanks again Belly.
I saw an obituary in the SMH today for the passing of Graham Galloway, a former Parramatta fullback. He was safe and solid, and a very good goal kicker.
I gather that he attended Kings. Those were the days, when Kings old boys played for a western Sydney club!
Good News for the Two Blues and visitors to 'Death Valley'
Well done, Blackers!
Great news, well done the MTBs!
Lidcombe Oval looking good to host Colts V Uni round 1
