We were supposed to play Hijacks, our conquerors in last season's final. They bloused. So we had a pickup game against some nice mature-age nursey types called Tryhards. One of them is Ben Hilfenhaus (new Australian one-day cricketer)'s girlfriends mum. So that was nice. The Tryhard's skip Ruth was sending down licorice allsorts, including one that bent both ways.
We didn't play that well, but still managed to take nearly all the points. It was extremely balmy and humid. Robbo filled in well for an absent Dave. A low key start to the new season. Hopefully next week our competition show up.
