“Oh Deer!”—A Bristol defeat.

From the get-go we were not optimistic for the game ahead of us. Meeting at redbrick at 5 for a 2-hour drive to Bristol we quickly realised how few players we had. Alex Wilmshurst had been “spilling his guts” in the toilet the night before, our captain Ali had injured ribs from some galivanting over the weekend and Wardy coming up with an even worse … Continue reading “Oh Deer!”—A Bristol defeat.

A Few Good Men.
