The Sly Devils lost a really close match today to the Navy... It was a nail-biter 27-25 #9 made two tries!!! The brave scrum half was not JUST the shortest on her own team but was the shortest player on the pitch.... The Navy women joked and called her a hobbit.....the feisty Scrum Half didn't let the jesting get to her and she proved with her 5'3" frame that she could outmaneuver the larger players with ease....as she carried the ball successfully down the field on several occasions.... Many of the Navy women now respect the tackles from this little Mexican Fireball as several were flipped in the air while trying to avoid this little wily scrapper.... The game was intense but later all were friendly at the social.... The Sly Devils' Right Wing, "Rookie"was a little upset over the loss and decided to have a nice quiet pint in the corner of the pub, followed by 10 noisy pints after!! (this Chica still is not drinking due to medical restriction... maybe next week?? haha we'll see) And that's the way it is......February 11, 2017
