PowerHouse Golden Girls

PowerHouse Womens Rugby has had many players pass through our fold, and in an effort to keep those no longer playing (for fact of age or place of residence), up to date on whats happening with the team, the Golden Girls newsletter/blog is here to keep you posted.

Team 2006

The page was looking a little dull so heres a pic of the team...

Round 9 - Endevour WHO?

An 11th hour call managed to save MOST of the team starting the journey to Endevour Hills. Another forfiet meant we diverted the team to albert park for a impromtu training session and lunch at the gunn. on one hand it was a shame there was no game since finals start next week... but considering the state of some players after georgies farewell on friday - perhaps it was a blessing in disguise!

Round 8 - Monahs Uni / Box Hill at Home

a lovely sunny day, all grades were at home (even our 2 thirds teams played each other!) the girls started slowly but warmed up to put on 4 tries before half time. i must say the back line is looking pretty damn scary - with rosy, claire, sao, amber and cat able to run over/around anything that resembles a defensive line, those on the sideline spent most of the game begging the girls to 'spin it wide'. of course, it always looks different when you in the middle of the paddock, but they seemed to get the message a few times and the final score was something like 40-7 :)

Round 7 - Northcote Away

not much to say, crap game, we lost. mel did her knee, now has joined anna on crutches, and will soon join the long list of knee reconstructions from our team.

Round 6 - Endevour Hills at Home

PowerHouse invoke so much fear in the opposisiton these days... that they dont show up! bugger. how rude! and the House had great preperation in the preceeding days, with subsitute coach Nash being heard to say 'and i had such a great backline prepared, they were hot, i taught them everything i knew!'. Yeah, right, thanks Mel, all backs love taking advice from the from the front row...

Oh well, dosnt mean we cant go out and celebrate - here are some pics from the evenings festivities:
