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.

Semi Final - Northcote at Home

Billed to be a fairy tale day at home, with colts, the women and 1st grade all playing in semi finals at home, the day bode well for the ladies.
Good preperation (involving burgers for some, water for others and heavy psyc-up music for a few) was made, and the game kicked of at the very civilised hour of 2pm. the HUGE crowd were cheering for the home team (thats US) and although a few girls started the match with a little stage fright, the shouts of 'Go House' worked wonders. We had em rattled, we had at least 80% of the ball possession, Gromit scored a length of the field try, we even held up about 5 of their try attempts! but unfortunately.... yep you guessed it.... they won. Thats ok, just means it will hurt em more when we beat in the grand final :)
As a footnote, colts lost (and were eliminated from the finals), 1st grade had a good win over Melbourne earning a walk through to the Grand Final, and we play Monash/Box Hill next week at Quins)
