192. Golden SandsDate: 14/05/2017
Location: Maroubra Beach, Australia
Team name: Don't Panic
Finishing postion: 2/8
We started off very rusty, against not very good opposition, but found ourselves as the day went on and the opposition improved. We didn’t expect to make the final, but we found it easy going until the semi against The Incredible Hucks. They had very high quality guys (Ben Sutas, Italy, James Lam, Lucas, Thang - a solid lineup). We used our women to poach the understanding on particular players, and also played three women as often as possible, and that was effective in shutting down their big plays.
The final was fairly one sided, with BUFF pulling away about half way through the game. We played quite well, but they were a very strong team.
There was a lot of rain in the middle and that was very shit, but it cleared and quickly became a distant memory. With pan galactic gargle blasters on the sideline throughout the day, and a barbecue and beers at the end, it was a pretty good day.
