Most of the supporters of Blue Mountains Rugby Union Clubs first grade side felt emotions ranging from bitter disappointment,to total awe at what they were seeing,as tearaway competition leaders and red hot premiership favourites Brothers came to Lapstone Oval and blitzed the Blueys 55-7 in an awesome display of Rugby,in the process virtually blowing off the park any real aspirations Mountains ,or any other team has, of taking the title judging on the football played by the opposition on the day.
It was near perfect Rugby,so well drilled,amazing intensity and commitment for the entire eighty minutes,and then the players themselves were brilliant particularly in attack,when their ability ,size,and brute strength smashed aside everything in their way,and the total humiliation was to come in the last twenty minutes when they decided to add the Harlum Globetrotters style of the footy,throwing the ball seemingly from one side of the field to the other,and in doing so leaving a trail of would be defenders lying in their wake.For the home team,they did try all the way but were just not good enough on the day,it was a shame that in one of the biggest losses ever on Lapstone Oval in the 40 years of the venue,that two great milestones were achieved at the same time with Dave Twomey playing his 300th game,while Jack Daniels not only reached the 300 game mark as well, but also his two hundredth first grade match.
