    Hey guys.
    I don't want to keep hijacking RuggerATX's thread, so I am going to tell you about my season here. Feel free to contribute or ask questions.

    Okay, I play for the Eels in the senior team. I've been playing league since high school. This year, our team lost in the finals to the West Tigers.

    I play 7, halfback. My job is to receive the ball from the scrum hooker and feed off to the wingers. I am also often the first receive on the play the ball, and many times I kick off from the 4th or 5th possession, attempting to put my guys into a try attempt or kick off into touch.

    I'm a bit taller than many halfbacks, but I'm nippy so that's why I got the position.
    Our pre-season comp starts in April, the main fixture in late May. Training and trials start in February - right in the middle of summer!

    Until then, I'm keeping active in a mixed touch comp.

    Our team has its AGM/Christmas Party tonight. Before we start sinking the suds, everyone has to vote on next year's leadership team. I was in it this year, as a senior player.
    I am hoping to make either captain or vice next year, fingers crossed.
    Wish me luck!

    Ouch. Hangover.

    Anyway, I got the vice-captaincy at last night's do.
