Marlins aren't playing, which sucks, so I'll have to go for the local team. Go Stags!

I haven't been to the New Lynn Club for years but it was a big part of my families life for a long time. I can still remember when they were the Falcons prior to the Stags. We used to only have teams to U16 and then you'd generally go to Glenora. The area was different then too as we were seen as one of the 'European' clubs - still 'working class'.

Great club and many many fond memories.

I wonder if my photo is still on the wall there? I bet my father's photo is ... life member.

Go the Stags!!!!!!!!!

PS - I'll try and get there on Saturday however I've got another committment.

If people want to see Ruben Wiki pull on the boots again, he will be doing so for the Senior A Bay Roskill 'God Squad' next Saturday 27th in the Senior A final. He played in their semi-final against Papatoetoe in the weekend and was epic.

Phelan is the 3rd, Sharman 2nd and Fox the top division.

The Bay Roskill God Squad is a team from the church that Ben Henry and Jerome Ropati go to. They've been strong in the Senior A comp for years. Ben has been playing for them since he was 15. Cool of Rueben to run with them but a bit unfair on Papatoetoe I suppose.

God Squad to win the Senior A's.

Stags to win the Phelan.

Point to win the Sharman - I support both clubs but there can only be one winner and Point have really risen from the ashes, going from almost dissappearing altogether to the Fox in 5 or so years. Bay go up to Fox next year as well so that's a good consolation prize for them.

Howick to win the Fox - go Dave Mu and the boys.

They were there as the Blockhouse Bay Cougers before amalgamating with Roskill I was told in the weekend.

I would have thought it would have been around the other way i.e Mt Roskill Devils in ahead of the Cougars. Imagine if they reformed (Blockhouse Bay Cougars) and had a ladies team called the COUGARS!
