GREY WIN BIG…AGAIN!

The CT Grey traveled up to the lovely Hudson Valley to play the Saratoga Stampede, not the Rough Riders as previously indicated and beat the home team 54-5. Captain Mike's report is below.

GREY BEAT WORCESTER…CELEBRATE 35TH ANNIVERSARY IN STYLE!

The Connecticut Grey beat our good friends from Worcester, a lot to a little... The Super Heroes from central MA came up a little short, although the side filled in after a bit, but were dominated by the Grey over the 80 minute match. Many thanks to the guys from Worcester...who came down and played a tough match. Kudos especially to George... who repeatedly tried to bait the Grey with mean spirited and thoughtless comments into giving him the sound thrashing he so deserves... but due to his advanced age...69 at last report, the Grey thought it best to just let him fall apart  on his own. 35TH...

The Grey traveled to the Mystic pitch up in Medford or Malden or some place north of Boston and won handily 31-17...Which is excellent because I've been there several times and had my ass handed to me...So good for the guys who made the long trip up to the Revere area...or 'fuckin' Revere' as they call it up there... for a nice win... The captain's report is below. CAPTAIN'S REPORT CT Grey  31   Mystic River 17 Saturday was a great day for rugby, although delayed by some youth soccer teams.

BELATED MATCH REPORT FROM ALL JAPAN/GONY

Your Faithful Correspondent must apologize for the late match report...I had to send out all the stuff on the 35th...and work...and that sort of thing...  But the bottom line is that a combined All Japan-GONY side beat us  33-29. The game ended as the Grey were driving...but time just ran out. Many thanks to All Japan for dragging GONY up to CT to help out. Our matches with both these NY Clubs are always memorable...especially when Crazy Legs McCarthy shows up looking for Daryl Garrison to harass and annoy... Daryl...much like the Boston OB RFC... was no where to be found. A great party at the Old Dublin...
