OK Ok.....

there is only 1 Tasmania where I am, and seeing he is a 6'3 Goalkeeper (Male)..there ain't NO WAY I want to wrestle with him!! :uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh:

Going well so far Piggy. Girls stunned last years champs in the first game...a 7-1 win looking very good on our board!!!

Next game a tight affair against the old nemisis Queensland, and we (unfortunatley) conceded a goal with 80 seconds to go..loosing 1-0.

Next was Victoria - a comfortable 6-1 win, leading 6 - 0 with 5 to go before they got lucky.

Men also undefeated so far, with tough game tomorrow and hard game Thursday.

So - appear to be on track with a real chance to compete for both titles.

We had a squad dinner last night and drew partners - and I got Di!!!! Looking even better now!!! :ok: :ok: :ok:

May send you a pic (if any Appropriate ones come out from the censor.......:hmm: :hmm: )

Good looking Quiz - I'm up next week!!!!!!

Cheers all

Scran in beautiful downtown Albury, NSW, Australia :hmm:
