19 years and still going strong….!!!!
The Annual Cricket match. It all started between Currumbin and Tugun after friends finished school and needed to keep the fires of competition alive. As Currumbin is far more spectacular in every way than Tugun could ever want to be, the boys from down there always do their best throwing a few balls at Currumbin’s finest! I am away for alot of these games but for the ones I have been to it’s a incredible example of mate-ship and I am very proud of all the guys for keeping it going through all these years! I’ll let the photos do the talking and finish with ‘your only as good as your last game’……
ps. All photos are in the order they were taken and as the day went on they deteriorate (so did my comments while doing this post).. . I was getting pissed. Be kind!
Pre-game talk up..
On their ground.
Come on Murd’s, it hasn’t even started yet.
Get em into ya, Capt.
Chooko, our fearless leader.
No cheating here.
No theirs.. Shit.
They chose to bat.
It take s a man to walk out there first…
Their openers didn’t last long.
See ya Muzza…
The long. lonely, walk back to the stand.
Have a go!!
Get onto it…
The Rowe/Margetts battle.

Its only a game Sean…
Second year in a Rowe, I mean row…
The big fella.
To the boundary?
Nope, straight to a pari of waiting hands..
and he’s gone…
Leading from the front.
Now, the rest of you need to do something.
and they start.
The bigger fella..
Always close to a beer.
Biting at the bit to get out there.
One of the most feared bowlers Tugun has.. Lethal!
Sometimes the banter was muffled…
Our fearless leader.
One of ‘them’.
Sometimes we faltered.
Not a bad save..
Still smiling.. Couldn’t hurt this head you pussies…
The big fella.
There is always next year…
Lindso loving the drop knee stoke.
Straight to him…
Action. Dropped or not?
Slip in son.
Taking us home.
Pressure was mounting.
Every year no one questions his rule.. Hats off!
The big fella loving the taste of Victory……
It was probably hard for Tugun..
But we will take it.
Well done boys.
Winner are Grinners.
A good bunch of Cunts.
