12 highly un-trained “special” athletes collectively know as the Woo Tang Clan made their impressive netball debut this week. We hit the courts with no fear and for many no knowledge of where to stand or which direction to face. A warm up game proved to be key – as we blasted out some cobwebs and survived two 20 minute halves – with no injury, no send-offs and also no trouble to the scorers – with not a single goal (one attempt easily cleared the hoop and ended up in a field 20 metres away). We were a different team when it came to the crunch however and we came through game one undefeated. Also with no wins- but we’ll take the draw.
Special mention to Madi R for two full games at centre and to Daniel for showing up wearing skins under his shorts. With game two strategies being strategised and our fearsome court-side reputation growing – there may just be a few ticks in the win column soon – watch this space.
