FOLLOWING the triumph of last week’s Diabetes Charity Day, Bullseye would like to thank the people of Singleton who proudly supported the event and is happy to report the Club goals were met and indeed exceeded.
Special mention must be made of two individuals who were the contrivance behind the day, Kylie Stibbard and Chris Bennett.
Both showed commitment over several months to arrange the day and both should be proudly basking in the success achieved.
Bullseye believes the $5000 goal was easily exceeded, much to the delight of Kylie and Bango.
Kylie’s passion for the event was particularly inspiring.
With the seasons finish line just ahead, the Bulls travel to Marcellin tomorrow for the seasons penultimate fixture.
The trip to Maitland always sees a brutal game of rugby, and tomorrow promises to be no different. A result going the Singleton direction will see arch rival Maitland probable bounce out of finals contention.
Needless to say, Bullseye cannot think of a better scenario this time of year.
Old heads prevail this week in the front row with Jamie Cruickshanks being promoted to partner fellow pensioner Ashton Partridge at prop.
It would be remise not to compare this pair to a bottle of Penfold’s Grange – becoming more full bodied with age and their net worth increasing with every year spent in their supervisor positions.
The other, more flattering part of the comparison is these two continue to produce quality football and will be a dominant force on the Maitland palates all day.
The second row sees Nathan Brennan and Matt Reid reunited after a brief separation, allowing Matt Gardiner to move to Number 8.
Bullseye has waxed lyrically about Brennan and Reid in previous weeks, so much so that both have been accused of being the Man behind the pen. Fortunately not so.
What is fact is that Brennan and Reid have established themselves as leaders in the Singleton team.
Both have had stellar seasons and Bullseye is looking forward to seeing them go around twice more this year.
Matt “Gaz” Howard is set to make his long awaited return to the first grade wing tomorrow, following a season of injury mishap.
Singleton’s best biceps were not enough to save Gaz from an early season knee strain, followed by a series of head knocks after leading into tackles with his rather sizeable chin. Gaz’s power running out wide is a very potent weapon, and Bullseye predicts this could be the attacking penetration the Bulls need.
The trip to Maitland and the surrounds of Lorn is one filled with tradition and bitter confrontation. The Bulls make the trek tomorrow afternoon and will need your support. . Bulls to win, Wallabies to win, both teams in black in tears!
