Around The Grounds
The tape, the boots and the beer.
Still, clear skies and warm temperatures. It sounds like an ideal beach day but it is also typical preseason conditions. The predominately dry conditions of late have left a lot of the grounds in a hard and dry state, increasing the chance of injury. I once watched a preseason game on dry, rock hard ground that resulted in four serious shoulder injuries!
Today I called in at the University Oval to see the visiting New Brighton teams from Christchurch and then went over to Alhambra Union taking on Southern.
For the record:
Otago University Colts won 34 – 16 over New Brighton.
New Brighton won 14 – 12 over Otago University.
