Sunday 4th September …FATHERS DAY
Well it was a good start to the day when all three daughters called with Fathers Day and Birthday wishes.
This has been a week with our usual busy schedule of doing things we enjoy but not going exploring and taking photos. The plan is to change all of that in the coming weeks. Please stay with us on new adventures coming soon.
We did drive to Greenbank, a suburb of Brisbane to watch grandson Chris play in the Rugby League Grand Final in his Under 12’s Junior Competition.
This will be the last time I report on Chris games…This year.
There were more than the usual handful of spectators today which gave the event a little more atmosphere and a sense of it really being an important occasion.
The players thought so too. By half time the scores were locked at 12 all so it was a game hanging on a knife edge.
The opposition team had two tries disallowed in the second half. Chris’s team went on to win 20 – 12 which is basically two tries with one conversion. It could very well have been a draw at full time.
I was pleased to listen to both coaches who praised the other side and commented on the spirit of sportsmanship displayed by both sides. The game was hard, clean and fitting of a grand final.
