L.S.R.G. 2XV vs. CL Batavieren 2
Last Sunday the 2XV went on expedition all the way to the edge of civilization in Middelharnis to play against De Batavieren. After a long journey we arrived with perfect conditions for a rugby match. With Merlijn being absent for some reason the honour coaching the 2XV went to our very own president, Jan Hein Koeleman (geyl!), this proved to be a very fruitful combination! De Batavieren -consisting of several burger clubs- made the first ten minutes of the match rather tough scoring the first try, however, being fat ugly burgers, they soon tired and it was time for a turnover. Young Dog Tim van Kins proved himself to be a textbook winger and scored a beautiful try to counter De Batavieren. Nonetheless, the Batavieren made the 2XV work hard for their tries, of which many more followed. The forwards worked their asses off for the backs (geyl!) to be able to score more tries! The 2XV did benefit from the fact that it could borrow players from 1XV, which didn’t have a match last weekend. Special mention needs to go to our beloved captain, Rik Hogeland, who made a publiekswissel in the last few minutes of the match and proved that he is as capable of playing scrumhalf as he is of playing flanker. Man of the match went to Matthew Pender, who played like and absolute beast. Unfortunately, the 2XV for some reason had to end with 63 points, had we scored 3 points less, and had De Batavieren scored one more converted try, the score would have been a very horny 19-60, instead the 2XV won with a very horny 12-63!
