Monsters loomed over the ground and wiggled their fingers alarmingly, Nick The Pig spoke fondly of Dubbo, the cute Waratah’s fan in front of us progressively lost her voice and became despondent.
And the ACT Brumbies tore the NSW Waratahs a new arsehole 36-10 with Bernie Larkham dominant.
Coverage: Keo was impressed. RugbyHeaven has Rupert Guiness enthusing and Growders trying to get back into Larkham’s good books. PlanetRugby also thinks the Brumbies looked good.
And the Waratah bang sticks were left where they belong, until we came along and jumped on them.
UPDATED: Thanks to StevePedestrian for pointing out the video of the Wooden Spoon he put on YouTube:
ANOTHER UPDATE: And here’s some YouTube of the tries, Brumbies are last in the set:
Yeah oh yeah oh yeah
I’m not a Brumbies fan at all but I still love seeing them beat the Waratahs, not just beat them but annihilate them…
That balloon thing looks like Mike from Monsters Inc… Unless it’s supposed to be Mike from Monsters Inc ?
It was indeed Mike from Monsters Inc. Even had the logo on his hat.
Give Bernie & Georgie the keys to the city.
That was awesome last night.. Great work to old mate in the crowd who had a big wooden spoon with NSW written on it.. Excellent
Bernie at his best
It was wunnerful. Trooly rooly wunnerful. I gloated over what the lads did. I irritated the daks off my NSW rellies.
And then I thought a bit about whether 2008 is going to be a darn long year … and whether I want to fork out hundreds for a season ticket so that I can pay $5 for parking a million miles away because some parking is left for people who arrive late(!), $7 for a pretty orinary program, sit in an uncomfortable seat being disturbed by people trying to get in or out of their seats (one bloke was up and down four times in the second half), have the view interrupted by dopes who stand like sheep in the aisles trying to work out why their seat is actually in another block, pay a fortune for seriously awful food, get inconsistent quality curtain-raisers and then some lousy half-time entertainment. (Not last night, though, the Federation guard was good viewing before the game even if the thing with the guns at half-time was a bit confused) Oh, and the babbling idiot interviewing babbling members of the public on the game screen that could be used to show the curtain raiser, or highlights of other games this weekend or whatever. Maybe not.
Yeah that spoon thing was great!
Should David Eastman face a retrial?
