Round 10 v's Brothers

1st Grade 

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.

2nd Grade
The great form of the previous  week was not to be repeated as despite some great football played by the likes of Dayne Nicholls,Justin Sayer,and the elusive Doug Want,competition leaders Brothers were far too strong with a very strong 36-0 win.

3rd Grade
Thirds knew they would be in for a tough encounter against Brothers but showed their usual class and determination to hang on for a crucial 7-5 win in a match in which Roy Tuisovivi was a stand out, and there was a welcome return to Lapstone Oval for  Rugby machine Grant Opie.

4th Grade
Yet another tradesman like performance saw the fourths maintain their high profile with an encouraging 18-7 victory over Brothers in a match in which the forwards laid the foundations,and there wasn’t a greater contributor in that area than in form prop Steve Leumvava ,who was outstanding in the scrummaging department, as well as in general play.

5th Grade
Had yet another tough assignment coming up against second placed Petersham at Camperdown Oval,they lost no friends in going down 24-14,in fact led for most of the game,and while loose forward Patonu Puru was man of the match,you would have to go a long way to see a better individual try than the brilliant five pointer to flying winger Chris Downes.
