Last NCG for Me

"But that's okay," That Green Gentleman (Things Have Changed) by Panic at the Disco.

So I'm back home in Marsfield. I've been home for more than a day now, arriving in Sydney yesterday evening.

The final results for the NCG 2012 (Queensland) rugby competition is as follows:

1. Victoria
2. Queensland
3. New South Wales (my team)
4. Western Australia
5. Tasmania

Le spoils.

We dropped a place from last year, effectively ending my brief participation in the National Conference Games in a negative gradient, result-wise.

As for performance, I managed to play all four games this time round, which is a big improvement from last year's one and a half, alhamdulillah. Our scrum-half got injured in the third game, so I had to fill in that role, since the team was short on good scrum-halves. I miss being a scrum-half. Scrum-halves see so much more action than standoffs do. 

Even though we ended up dropping a place from last year, I feel that this year's team was actually better than last year's. This was because the training was better, the playing was more organized (not perfect, but better than last year's, in my humble opinion), and the boys worked really hard on the pitch. We won the first two games (WA & Tas) but due to spills in the rucks in the opponents' twenty-twos, we lost the other two games (Vic & Qld). They were very efficient in capitalising on our rare moments of sloppiness, and we paid the price.

Having said all that, of course I am to a certain extent saddened by our losses, but I am certainly happy I got to play four full matches with a good team. Alhamdulillah.

My whole body is still hurting.

God I missed rugby.

May peace be upon you.
