Here the second installment of the “Off the Mark” – A draw, where’s my sister?
Yesterday we looked at the Shimlas game and found out why Selo and Hawski are heroes – today features another epoisode of the Wes Chetty chronicles alongside tubby props Willie Meyer and Wellsie.
I actually don’t know what to say about the game anymore, but with a draw, if I had a sister I would be hunting her at Barney’s pub after the game. Obviously as a team we were pretty gutted, as you would be if you find your siblings attractive, knowing that we had to settle for a draw. BUT I can assure you that the varsity Cup 2010 campaign for the Ikeys is still very much on track. The confidence has not dropped and we ready for Pukke this coming Monday on the Green Mile.
Our only Boschips (spelling intended) old boy Wes Chetty had a hard time this week having to face up to his apparent fear of flying. 110kg’s with 20 inch biceps, our boy was hanging onto his seat for the landing in PE the same way he was clutching his McFeast Burger on Monday night. This is not some gimmick readers; the poor man is planning on bussing it up for the UJ game in a month’s time! I must admit the landing in PE was not that of Chuck Yeager, and thanks to the pilot we had many a laugh at team mate Wes and the yelps of the soccer players from bay united.
He then had to room with Ashley wells the proverbial disciplinarian of the team! Wellsy is a boytjie with many years under the belt and its superb to have a level headed father figure (pun intended) to steer us young bloods in the right direction! It was nice to have wellsy show us how to loose some cash at the roulette table after having a few quiet ones with baby genius Pauly Cohen and his roommate Wes. It’s not hard to wonder where he gathered this great leadership quality and level headedness noting that he TOO matriculated in 2003 at the finest, greatest….Iv actually already said that. Basically he also went to Wynberg Boys high school!
Lastly I would like to quote something Willie Meyer, a great Tubby prop and as you know this is written by a prop I thought it was quite special, Willie Meyer broke and drove over the line and Andre Watson the referee shouted “No Try. In The air held up by number 12!” Willie jumping to his feet almost in tears pipes up “THESE BLOODY NUMBER 12’s!! They always get in the way of fast centres.” The next game with Watson the ref again Willie Meyer called Andre Watson aside to talk privately and said seriously “Andre, Today I am going to score a try and I need you to be right on the spot, because it will be a tight one and remember you owe me one from when that silly number 12 got in my way.” Willie Meyer did score a try that day and it was awarded by referee Andre Watson!
Be sure to catch up with the Ikey Tigers this week when we battle the Pukke on the Green mile this coming Monday!
ONCE AN IKEY ALWAYS A TIGER!!!!!!!
