SCC Pirates vs Jiankang
The Pirates XI slowly assembled on a sunny, but breezy, Saturday afternoon at the artificial Jiankang University field. Late changes on Friday night led to six Bashers in the side: Shitshoes (c), Swiper, Paps, Bambi, Skid Row, and Pussy.
Get Your Hot Doggies…. Aug 27 2017
Coming off a big evening of lizard racing, thong throwing and heavy drinking the leisure team began to arrive at the camel for clash against the Hot Dogs. Hard On was first to arrive at an ungodly 5am, one might say a tad early to attend to his duties as 12th man. So obviously the logical thing to do is head down to Hollywood, stick your cricket kit in the cloak room and bust out some shapes for 2 hours. Well played indeed! Another notable mention for quality pre bus leisure antics goes to Fisty for masquerading as Mayweather v McGregor spectator and collecting a free beer for the bus ride ahead. Leppa arrived fashionably late as he realised he was out of smokes and had to pop out to duty free at Pudong to pick up a carton. Kit, Beers, Pies all loaded and off we go.
Leapord can’t change its spots!
The big game of will he or won't he.
The morning started with "will Skiddy and Bambi get on the leisure bus to support the boys and sledge the dirty doggies?" - They won't. The after effects of Kakadu Free flow and DJ Beast combined with "alarm not going off" to be blamed. Shit excuse of the year goes to Bambi.
Sir Dick’s Arkham- Pleasure to Play-offs
On the sunny morning, it all began- Skiddy's led the Pleasure lads on the conquest for a place in the Play-offs. With hesitation and sleep in their eyes, the team went to smash those cunning Pudong twats. It seemed like the high tempo was temporarily taken aback by the vegetarian pies. Special mention for Sir Dick who used a click-counter to score the Pudong team while the Bashers were on the field to avoid any rigging of the scorecard.
Aug. 20 Pleasure vs Hangzhou — You’ve been… Thunderstruck!
You know you're in for an unpredictable day when Fruitbox a) turns up sober for a Bashers bus and b) introduces a returning Basher (Pigu) who was almost short enough to look Skiddy in the eye without seeming condescending.
Leisure Lumberjack. Vs Pudong Aug 13
Oh the day had come , the day to play
A game to take us to the brink of history
The finest of men had gathered together
Pleasure cruise to defeat – Sunday Aug 6th
The pleasure were up for a mid-table medley on Sunday as they went into battle against Pu Dong. Pu Dong were right behind the Bashers on the table so a win would put some distance between Pudong and launch the Pleasure into the playoffs.
Rain Lubricates Leisure Title Journey
Imperial Leisure assured their place in the playoffs on Saturday after gaining a point for a tie, but missing out on a win that would have put them into second place. Leisure batted first, putting on a testing 165, with an excellent return to form for Fruitbox with a well-crafted 50. In reply Hot Dogs could only manage a measly 55 off 10 overs before monsoon conditions stopped play, and the match was called off.
IT TAKES ONE TO TANGO!
It’s good to have the pies, ice, esky and beers as we get onto the bus, and bad to not have 11 players for the game. But, as Skiddy had used only his hands to count the players for the game, we only had 10. After consulting with legal counsel, Skiddy called in “Aaron” (as named on the scorecard) to make an 11. Thanks to “Aaron” for accepting the late call up and arriving by the second over…let’s just presume he was sitting kitted-up at Century Ave Metro, just in-case the call came in.
10 Wicket Win, Leisure vs Daredevils – 30th July 2017
Weary, haggard faces all round at the Camel, mostly due to the age of the team; Rash, Spanner and Pope just not looking after themselves. Team accounted for, Eskies full, pies available, bus adjacent, we headed out.
