DEFENDING premiers Mereweather-Carlton venture to Rugby Park tomorrow to take on the Singleton Bulls in what is set to be the most controversial game of the season.
Over the past few years, the Slime have acquired multiple Singleton juniors to both the playing and coaching roster, and Bullseye is looking for the whole of Singleton to make their presence felt at Rugby Park and show just how much we despise the Slime.
The Slime have been struggling this season, and poetic justice dictates the Bulls are certain to continue their problems.
Benedict Arnold had his reasons for defection and Judas earned 30 pieces of silver for his betrayal; and Bullseye can understand their actions.
But if there is one thing that Bullseye can never comprehend or forgive, it is a betrayal of the Singleton Bulls for individuals to wear that disgusting shade of green.
As George W Bush famously said, “you’re either with us or against us,” and Bullseye is confident those who stayed loyal will prevail.
Tomorrow’s match does however bring to fruition the most anticipated personal match up of the season.
After dominating at half back over the past few weeks, Sam Ernst has retained his position and will go head to head with his brother, he who cannot be named, in a battle of the halfbacks for the first time.
Bullseye has dreamt of this proposition since March.
Not since Cain lead Abel to his death has there been a more intense or important sibling battle. Bullseye predicts a battle of biblical proportions, finishing with Sam landing the killer blow.
It will be a tough day for parents Tony and Judy, however both are sure to be cheering for their beloved Bulls and Sam tomorrow, who will no doubt be favourite son for the day.
In a few minor changes in the forward pack, Adam Clements has been named for the first time in the second row.
By all reports Clemo loves the tight stuff, and will be plodding along and doing the hard yards needed to lay the platform for the rest of team.
Well done to Adam on his promotion to the top grade.
Elsewhere in the pack, Matt Reid moves to the side of the scrum and will continue his great form; whilst Mitchell Tanner moves to the more familiar position of No. 8, where is hard running, creative play, and damaging defence can be best utilised.
As stated in the backs, Sam Ernst retains the halfback position whilst returning captain Mick Nicholson moves to fullback. The backline has remained otherwise unchanged.
Separate to the rugby, Singleton’s premier social event is upon us once again. Friday July 6th will see the next instalment in the Lunch with a Legend series.
The Club is hosting renowned comedian Vince Sorrenti, who is sure to be a fantastic guest. Tickets can be booked by contacting Peter Dunn or Bill Sutton. For more information, see our website www.singletonrugbyclub.com.au
And there she lies. On a day that could be compared with Fletcher Christian and the mutineers of the Bounty finally returning to face the music, a home coming of sorts awaits a few of the Slime brigade. Bullseye fencourages you all to be part of the vocal Singleton crowd tomorrow afternoon.
Give your support to our local boys, third grade kick off at 11:10 am, first grade at 3 pm.
