Most of the space in this issue is devoted to a list of the social events put
together by Kim, Maxine, Kath, Richard, Lenny & Dan. This means less room for
other things. The Junior Draw and Women's Draw will go into the next newsletter.
Brock James will be returning from the Wallaby U19 side playing in Paris. We hope to
have an interview from Brock in the next newsletter.
Calum Mackie is enjoying his time in London, as we would expect of course, having been
spotted at Rolf Harris' 70th birthday party. To some this is a source of
amusement. To others, surprise ... that Rolf is 70 years old.
From Kim Evans, and more of Calum Mackie: "As for scandal, on
recalling the details of my converstaion with Mr Mackie (Senior) I recall that he
mentioned that Calum was sent off the pitch in Birmingham for roughing up another player
and making him weep. When Calum suggested that crying was not something men do, and
particularly not while on t'pitch, he was told "Shut up, you mad Aussie
bastard". The moral of the story is uncomplicated - Englishmen are soft."
