The Raider Legends had to play Old Scotch/Sth Yarra at the very unusual Fritsch Holzer Res in Hawthorn East. The ground is on the side of a hill with a ditch in the middle of the ground. Once again we barely managed to get 18 players. The change room was in the toilets of a nearby YMCA Gym. We got ready with the local Kendo Club fighting it out in the next room. We started pretty well in the game and were only narrowly behind at half time. Rugby Ross was running through blokes Ash was working hard out wide, Lenny was fantastic in the guts and Noel did great work down back. We were down a couple of goals down going into the last 1/4 but ran out of steam late to go down by 5 odd goals. Nobody gave up and everyone slugged it out to the end.
