DREAM TEAM PROMOTIONS

Tuesday, 18. April 2006 12:53  <"612">Write a comment

Only a few days left to get your entries for the dream team competition into the club. Not many entries in at the mo - you've go to be in it to win it! It doesn't matter if you don't know half the players or anything about rugby, have a shot, who knows, you might even hit the jackpot and all monies raised go to club funds so do your bit!

Dreams:
You could have saved yourself a lot of effort, but I suppose the funds will come in handy. There is only one Dream Team. That’s the team that took Annan to Premier 3 and Murryfield. Nuff said.

keepurstandardsup:
Yes that was a decent team although you fail to recall that we were at Murrayfield because we were dumped out of the main competition in the 1st round and were the highest ranked team remaining in that competition. Although nice to be there and play on the big stage it was hardly an achievement winning the c**ts cup as it is affectionately known. The team that lost to GHK in the real cup were far better!!

ThinkB4Utypestupid:
Murryfield point accepted, but it was still a dream for players and fans. That aside, that Team are the Dream Team taking Annan to the highest position they will probably ever achieve.

ThinkB4Utypestupid:
Murryfield point accepted, but it was still a dream for players and fans. That aside, that Team are the Dream Team taking Annan to the highest position they will probably ever achieve.

local historian:
what about the team that played and emerged victorious from the 'battle of carrick'?

ss:
Well said GG!

historians apprentice:
Do go on of this battle of carrick historian, I am curious.

KURSup@i'm no stupid:
I say again the team that got to the semi-final of the SHIELD & lost to Selkirk were a stronger team. They humped Edinburgh Wands who were a good side getting there. If players like Jevs, Sean Bucks, Gogs, Shaun mcG and Big Stuff had been playing then Micheal Rennie would'nt have got a game let alone been named man of the match !

jj:
Hate to admit it but we lost the 'Battle of Carrick'

coach minto:
That Annan team that got to the shield semi were a confident team after several seasons winning the leagues - (mind you they were taught a lesson by that Selkirk back row!). But everyone in that team isn't listed in the dream team competition so don't waste your time. Pay your £1 and enter the competition. I know who I'm votng for - champs not chumps.

Professor Snape:
Following the battle of
Carrick there should have been a lesson learnt. Unfortunately Annan seem to have completely forgotten how to do what Mr Minto did to Annan in the semi final of the Shield.

Onny, if yor listening. I've just came back from Dublin and the next Oki Doki Tour must go back to the capital!! I want to go to the game at Croke Park and who cares if there is thousands of Scots it only adds to the crack. Dublin it is, don't make me fight you!!

J-Lo:
I concur

tour tale teller:
Galway was a nice change and hats off to Onny for broadening the tourists' horizons, once again he done us proud with first-rate tour. However, let's be honest it was a bit of a shithole. The girls were not up to scratch and many of the citizens appeared deformed in some way. The pubs were mediocre and the discos of a sub-Dumfries standard (yes, that bad) it's time to get back to basics. With Hadden at the helm we no longer have to pretend there isn't a game on so here's to Dublin 2006

dublin 2008 campaigner:
Bazz I'm not sure if 2008 match will be at Croke Park, Lansdowne is due to be finished by then but knowing how lazy and disorganized the Paddies are that may be a moot point. But yes, the time is right for Oki Doki to make a triumphant return to the capital. Three nights in Dubs, Mullingar is so 20th century!

tour tale teller:
Of course I meant, here's to Dublin 2008! Unless anyone fancies a wee puddle jump later in the year!

onny who else:
Bazz I will go where the majority want to go after all 2008 will be last ever Oki Doki tour and I want to finish my career as a tour operator on a high.So its between Dublin and Cork Bazz you wouldn't hit your wee oompah loompah mate would you.

Big Stuff:
I'd go back to that Hotel we went to last time in dublin at the drop of a hat and I suppose if you want to see other bits of Ireland Shearings do a very nice line in Bus tours. Dublin gets my vote Onny - if only to avoid another early morning rise and dodgy bus trip. I'm sure the lads wont mind paying a bit extra for decent flight times. (I'm off to find a hat that I can drop should the need arise)

I told you so:
Told you lot you wouldnae like going out of Dublin but you wouldnae listen. Shoulda went tae Mullingar with the boys ya wallys.
An aw that cr*p youse were spouting to Onny, "Ooh thanks, best trip ever blah blah" aye right! yer aw 2 faced.

Bertie:
Nice of 'I Told You So' to hide behind an assumed name whilst slagging people off! Onny did well to try somewhere new - everyone I spoke to seemed to enjoy it, apart from the early flights! Dublin def the place to be, was already planning to go there anyway! Back to the Russel Crowe hotel sounds like a good plan Big Stuff - they might even have finished laying the tram tracks outside!!!

Ed:
Must admit I enjoyed Galway, for a change and can't agree with the comments about the discos, we were able to strut our stuff doing the "funky gibbon", "tiger feet" and "the hucklebuck" to our hearts content, "not 'alf mate"
I agree with Bertram, Onny did a sterling job.

tour tale teller:
'I told you so' you are a fud. No-one is being two-faced here the truth is that Onny did run a first-rate tour but Galway let us down slightly, with Dublin the call for 2008. Certainly was better than bein with you clowns in the 'Gar, whoever you are. As has been said that cattle hamlet is so 20th Century. The Oki Doki boys shagged it dry years ago so hope you enjoyed stirring our porridge, if you managed to get any at all that is!

whatyaon.com:
??????? there wasn't any shagging.

And I really did tell you:
Well "Tour tale teller", hit on a sensitive spot did we?? The Gar' tottie reckon this was the best ever year, no wit ah mean, wee boy?
Naw you losers go to Dublin where you belong, amongst aw the other pikies.

How did the 1's get on at Langholm???

Wallace:
Got beat 18-6 but Bazz had another brilliantly fantastic performance!! He is without doubt the most talented guy I have ever seen, ever since I saw Jerry Dames playning for the Annan Acadamy cricket XI. Howzat

fan:
baz stop pretending to be wallace

The Williams Sistas:
We think Bazz is supersonic, he can kick like a crocodile and laugh like a mule, a good all rounder and he wears brylcreem, what more could anyone want from a true sporting superstar.

Hugh Jappetitie:
But I thought all geniusses, geniuii, guinnessess, well, gifted people were flawed. I mean take a look at my spelling, now is Bazz flawed??

R Slika:
Flawed? Floored, more like.
Who are the Williams Sisters anyway, are they blind as well as deaf? Or was it indeed Wallace all along? The plot is thick enough.

Grommit:
Baz flawed? Floored more like.
Got a kick like a snake and a laugh like a not very amused type thing.
His hair is dyed too (I know)

Major D. Zasta:
Tis true that Bazz is a genius. Apart from his stunning good looks and charm most recently his training episodes have included 14 laps of Raymond's belly and a pie eating contest with Wallace - he was quicker with the pies! He has admitted liking frank Park's special doughnuts too!

so many questions to answer.
approx 27 bodies going (probably only 25 coming back)
same digs
only 1 playing team and a much biggar drinkin team.
think the bus is going to have to leave earlier as planned at 9am because the first games are at 12noon.
get £20 to me ASAP £50 all in.
Bicardi and cola do it do it.

Wes Mantooth:
Dorothy Mantooth is a saint do you hear me, a saint!!!

Ron Burgandy:
Lets keep the mothers out of this!!

Big Stuff:
When is this trip Muff?

Bazz:
Sun 30 Apr - Mon 1 May. Big Stuff, please come I know your seevens expertise will stand in good stead. If not you can stand on the sidelines with Eddy, Babe, Ally, & 20 others discussing how best to play the "sports".

Big stuff:
Obliged for the invite Bazz, alas Smithy and I are away to Belfast on International duty a few days before that (obviously I can't tell you the exact date for security reasons, but it is a midweek game taking place on a day that starts with a W) and the present Mrs Mac wouldn't stand for two trips in one week.

Beerticus O Guinness:
You can do whateva you want Mr Stuff, you are the man of the house and as such, whatever you say goes. Mrs Stuff will just have to like it if you want to go on 2 trips!

long suffering ed:
Yeah, get yourself there Big, then I won't have to save Ally from himself on my own. He just would not believe me when I told him that the big butch, Desperate Dan lookalike in a red dress and size 14 stillettos was a cross dressing wrestler, down on his luck but would he have it?
It took me ages to pull him off.

Well done U15's on their narrow victory at Laigh Bent on sunday. There was a distinct difference in their attitude in the dressing room prior to the game, totally different from the Dalziel game of two weeks previous. Fired up right from the kick off, they took the game to Hamilton and didn't stop until the final whistle. A fine, mature, team performance. Keep it up for the semi's.
F I B.

D. Flated:
Just heard that we have been excluded from the competition for a technical infringement. Never mind lads, onwards and upwards

ss:
What was the "technical infringement"? Over-age players?

hghjh:
yes just 2 players

A:
Oh - just two - oh well how pedantic (picky for dido and the others) is that!!

Mary Doanty:
Why on earth were Tam and Cash playing for the U15's?

Well, mentally I suppose it was technically ok.

sorry mr startled the few good games they did play were far few between but the proved they can do it cartha perthshire etc . but if they dont look too the bad games and learn from them and there were a lot then believe me theyl be fighting relagation again next year.its going to take honesty players too look at thear failings t o improve and hard work to turn it round.sorry lads time to be honest

Andy:
It is easy to be critical Mr Dido so to prove it I will be critical of your shocking spelling and sentence structure.
Surely your point is that the good games were 'few and far between' and that 'THEY' proved etc. We need to look 'TO' the bad games and it's 'RELEGATION', players will look at 'THEIR' failings. We know our problems, we also know our potential.

andy's english teacher:
get it up u dido

Smook:
Is the 'L' silent in Dido, then?

Ed:
In reply to Andy’s comments about Dido’s complex sentence structure, above, I amused myself with defining 'relagation'. The serious point is in that pseudo-academics and management-gurus clutter up their writing with tortured English. In law, there is much to be said for properly defining constructs and that goes for many other academic areas which work within the human sphere rather than the physical world. However, Plain English often helps rather than hinders those areas and good communicators need to be able to both take on board the complexities of the academic, yet be able to explain in terms that a lay-person can understand. Not everybody can do that and there is room for different sorts of people - I have a friend (Bertie) who can hardly make himself understood, yet has a wonderfully clever academic mind.
Just out of curiosity and having a laugh at some unnamed writers on this page - would people set out their favourite examples of 'much ado about nothing' where literary mountains have been made from mole-hill concepts.

Don:
Woodman, have you flipped?

sleep deprived minto:
Ed, yes, that English prop at the start of this season...the English writers said he is the greatest scrummager around...a man mountain...the platform to build for world cup glory...single handedly smashed the Aussie front row...then he got a bit of Irish, Scottish and Kiwi up him and where is he now ...champ or chump - you decide!

Not So Cunning Linguist:
Ed, you're quite correct in what you say. However, in order for me to fully concur with your assertions, I would require you to consider the possible incidences of intertextuality between the Good News Bible and Ace of Spades by Motorhead.

Ed:
Good to see "Sleep Deprived" and "Not so Cunning" have grabbed the ball and are running with it.
See Don, english can be fun, why don't you learn it sometime!

Ha ha, my little joke, substituted an exclamation mark for a question mark, did you see that.
Oops, should never analyse comedy.

F McGowan:
Vote Quimby!

Ed:
Errr...Frankie, think your comments are for another thread.
If not, then nice try.

Ed:
Ah, an interesting one Mr “Not so cunning ..”
I’m drawn back to that old chestnut, that we were want, to bandy about in the club (whilst in our cups, it must be asserted), the “Hegelian” philosophical principle that out of a thesis and its opposed antithesis comes the hardy alloy of a synthesis.
This theory has, I feel, a seductive power, even now. We can see the vestiges of intertextuality within the “easy to read text” of the GNB and the simple melodic thud of “Ace of Spades”.
I am certain, though, that this topic will continue to be a “hot potato” (excuse me lapsing into the vernacular here) and will be excitedly debated within these pages, over the coming days and weeks. I welcome any other comments on this subject.
Or as Mr A Graham ejaculated, quite wittily this observer thought, during Saturday’s second IV fixture, “ Wit the f*** wizat aboot?”

Don:
Frankie - Quimby as in Fred?

Bertie:
Given the apparent erronious nature of the foresaid comment by the individual identifying himself as Frankie where Ed suggested that the foresaid Frankie had interjected in the wrong thread, it may be safe to assume that the Quimby being mentioned is the infamous Mayor Diamond Joe Quimby from the Simpsons! I may of course, as is my habbitual want, be uttering nonsensical drivvel, in which case I feel obligated to extract my statement! (Here Ed - how do ye manage all this prose, you must have too much time on your hands!)

Ed:
I think you're correct about Mayor Quimby, Berticus.
(sotto Voce)"I think Frankie's had a senior moment, poor guy, sshh"

What prose??

Big hand for the lads! Caught the video on SRU page, the boys played a magic game. Chocolate in at centre and looping in support, class! Start next season playing like that and the title's yours.

i have just seen highlights of the game on thr sru xv vidoe clip and i have to say boys you played with pride. So just go and do the same at langholm and let work hard over the pre season and work our way back into division 1.
I would also like to thank the young lads that helped us 2nd out on sat willix and young connor never looked out of place.Good luck to dougie and cheers for your work on the pitch and at training.

Nice to see your using your computer for things other than animal porn, well done Belly

Bazz:
It is no shame on Belly for looking at animal porn as he is an aardvark, a champion aardvark at that. Either that or a lizard with a large snout. And yes Belly before you say it, I'm a rat or as you would pronounce it "a yat".

The 2nd XV have two league matches left - at home against Marr and away against Strathclyde University. If they win both matches, they will be promoted to Division 4 West.

Bertie:
What date's the Marr game on?

Don't know either date. Pepe will have to confirm.

Shirts Missing.
1st and 2nd XV - 6,13,and 20
Colts - 14

Anybody who has these shirts please contact me or the club ASAP.

Shirts Damaged.
1st and 2nd XV - 3 shirts

I cannot get these fixed if I do not know they are damaged.
Players please inform me if your shirt is torn during a game.

The club cannot afford to replace shirts so we have to be better at looking after what we've got.

Bertie:
We should get the girlfriends and wives to darn them, and they could bake some scones and apple pies for behind the bar too, mmmm.

Perthshire were electric and deserve the championship, based on yesterday's showing. But,hey, they were lucky to win-Annan showed just how good Annan are...a superb display and a very enjoyable game of rugby. I really cannot understand why we are getting relegated and have said this on several occassions to several people.

I guess that's just life. So, chins up lads and lets bounce-back in style next season.

Just want to say that although the result went against us in the end, the spirit the boys showed against Perthshire was excellent. They showed the doubters (which on occasions has included myself) that they can play rugby with passion and guts (yes, blood n snotters stuff Baz). It should provide us all with optimism for next season and the time to build on that starts now. I thought Smithy did some excellent things yesterday (on the pitch) and Craig McCann kicked very well all day. Yes it was a bugger having to watch those boys celebrate, but that should give us all something to aim for next season. Remember, yesterday wasn't just about a day's work for Perthshire, it was about a whole season so they are entitled to their celebrations. Many of us can remember 7 similar days for the club so lets work hard from now and create the opportunity for those who havent yet tasted success to do so. If seeing that yesterday doesn't motivate you I don't know what will. Obliged.

smithy:
As ever bigstuff you provide us with words of wisdom. I would just like to add that we have one BIG game left, which we should all be up for and would like to thank PC for his leadership throught the season. Oh aye and obviously Kenny and Paul for their dedication and hard work. Lets finish on a high and stuff it right up the muckle toon.

Bertie:
Well said Big Stuff, it was indeed an excellent game, our small contingent of Annan supporters were treated to some fine entertaining rugby! The potential certainly is there, watching yesterday I think we could end this season on one heck of a high when we eventually get to the Muckle Toon!

Ed:
Definitely no need for any despondency, The team fronted up and gave Perthshire a BIG game but once again just edged out by a club with loads more resources. Proud of the boys, though.

A new addition to these pages thanks to Linsday Currie

If you are buying anything from the web - buy it though this link.

The site links to Amazon, CDWOW, John Lewis and over 100 other online shops.

If you then purchase anything from the shops Annan Rugby Club gets a small percentage. You know it makes sense...

Thanks to PC for coming up to watch aswell as the other supporters that were there.

Big cup game for the U15's this sunday at Violetbank [weather permitting] aginst Dalziel, who are the current league champs of the next division up from our lads. It would be nice and, I'm sure, appreciated by the lads, if there was a good crowd of support to cajole the youths on to a victory!!

Good on ya Crocadee mate, the lads would appreciate some morale support, lets get there in numbers.

Who gives a sh*t whats on in ECCLEFECHAN. Support your Rugby club.

PC:
What a stupid thing to say. Does that mean that club members should only be allowed to go to their homes, their work and the rugby club?
I didn't hear you saying 'who gives a f*** about Galway, support your rugby club'.
Anyhoo, lets get stuck in tomorrow and enjoy a few beers afterwards.

Bertie:
Well said PC, there appear to turnip heads in our midst who should practice what they preach.

I'm the real Berticus:
Not a bad comment there by Bertie, almost wish I'd said it myself! I find it worrying that people would want to sign themselves as me - surely there are far better people out there to aspire to!

Obliged to Onnie for a great trip, however, as a young tourist I have a question. Ever since I got back I have felt feverish, depressed, fearful and generally run down. Are these common post-Tour symptoms?

Bazz:
Yes they are, don't worry though it generally passes after 48 hours. Jumping with fright just as you slip off to sleep is another symptom. It is widely known in tour circles as "the fear".

Orson Carte:
When is the first instalment of the next oki doki tour due, got my dosh ready now?
Also, is there any truth in the rumour it's to Craggy Island?

we love oki doki:
orson carte i hear the rumours say onny is wanting to go out with a bang as it will be his last organiised tour!! Shame

Ray van Looney:
Well, we love OD, I'm not one to listen to rumours but apparently Onny wants the next tour slush fund to top 7500 eu, a bit more for him to skim off the top, natch.
He wants to go out in a blaze of indifference, all guns popping and we're just the men who'll make it happen! So come on Onny I've got my spondulics at the ready, get that tour pot opened!

Top quality Oki Doki weekend as always boys, can't wait til 2008 when we will stink out another place. Let us never speak of the court again though, the strictest I've ever witnessed. Iminent Big Stuff Iminent!!

Big Stuff:
Strict but fair Baz, enough said. Top tour yet again Onny, hopefully i'll have my voice (and solid stools) back by Thursday. I suspect though that following the success of the smoking ban in pubs by the Irish Gov', punters will be lobbying them for a farting ban in pubs too - having a Band stop mid song to request that the "Scots boys refrain from farting" is a first for an Oki Doki - well done to all those who took part in that particular aspect of the tour and, to all who went, cheers for the company. Alas, it's back to Rugby chat for the next 102 weeks!

Ed:
Agreed, top drawer stuff, even down to booking Charlie Caroli's old bus to ensure the lads got an extra half day of "craik" was inspired.
C'mon though, who's nicked the Spud???

Onny, have I got this right?

We're scooping the slush fund (5000 euros last I heard) on Sunday..... but leaving the hotel at 7.00 the next day??

it won't bother me but what about the lightweights, they won't get their fair share of the booty.

I sincerely hope they're not going to be stiffed!

Bazz:
Chill out ed, at your age a hard day on the sesh- day 3 as well- might place you in 'shit your breeks country' or spew all over the place... neither is good. take it easy ed man dio

Pud:
Having the slush fund on Sunday is the best idea ever- the light weights will just have to MAN UP

Ed:
Sh*t you're right Bazz, just looked in the mirror and I am one of the oldies, doh.
Hmm, I'd better take it easy, don't want to ruin that pair of pants on the first day.
Then again crimpolene dries in no time.

Hairy:
5000/40=125 Euros ea

125/5= 25 pints ea

now where did I put my Passport.

Original & best Bazz:
Ed, the Bazz who made the previous comment wasn't the real Bazz, this is the real Bazz. However I agree with fake Bazz so I have no beef with fake Bazz at this juncture. Slush fund should always be on the final day of tour, I have no sympathy for lightweights

Chocolate:
Believe Bruce Blowers has been selected too, so well done to them both

Well done lads, and well done to those who have had an influence and input into your playing career to date.

PC:
Congratulations lads, really well done to you both.
Can you get me any free training kit???

Shaun McG:
Here here Big Stuff I find myself agreeing with you again!! Kenny's White & Hogg, Blackie,Nell Chalmers, Gut,Ali Murray shoukld all give themselves a big pat on the back for the effort put in over the years. It's all worthwhile if you get just one that makes it. I'm sure the boys will work even herder as this is only the beginning. Well done to all concerned

Can't believe this but i agree you with you Shaun the coaches deserve a pat on the back. Well done Snowy and Bruce!!

Thanks for your concerns lads, but your esteemed captain pc has sorted me out. It is his unfortunate absence from the trip which has allowed me this opportunity... may i do the carruthers tartan proud

FAO GUS- Hi Gus, was wondering if you could put some photos Annan's day at Murryfield in the "Annan RFC in Action" part of the page. There are aleady some good photos there but this was a cracking day out and a good achievement for the club so it would be good to have some memories.

Gus:

Yes lads the advance party is back with a report from the Emerald Isle and the news is not good. The pubs are so full of smart young things that you can hardly get served, if and when you do get served they'll only give you this funny Black stuff they try and pass off as beer. I didn't like it at first but once you get to double figures it becomes passable. They made us sit and drink in the dark with the door locked and the blinds down on Sunday morning because they said they weren't open! And to top it all off they've brought in a new law for the pubs called the UBC. I think they got the idea from Texas.
You'll hate it.
P.S. better practice your Polish and Latvian chat up lines Baz?

Big Stuff:
Hairy, you have more holidays than Judith Chalmers (but you're skin's not as leathery) You'll have less spare time once Chaplecross is shut let me tell you. I'm off to learn Polish for "Please don't call the Garda, this unfortunate situation only came about as a result of his short sightedness" - should the need arise to bail Baz out of a corner.

Bazz:
It's ok, I know the Russian for "I'm an archaeologist". I'm sure all those Eastern European communist languages are about the same.

Well done to Andy White for playing his part in the Glasgow U18 victory over the Borders yesterday at Netherdals. Andrew played the entire game (at full back) and Glasgow won 30-29.

For all you hardcore Ireland tourists- there was a court held last time in the hotel we stayed at where Kenny Toal read the news. Can anyone confirm what day that was on?? Friday or Sunday??

Me and Baz have money on it and I would like to prove the white stick carrying rat wrong.

Bertie:
It was the Sunday before we all headed to the Arlington! Great fun it was too! A share of the money would be nice!!!

Big Stuff:
Onny, according to the 2002 Census, the population of Galway is 66 163 but I cannot find details on how many own a bicycle anywhere. Have you, as tour organiser, got Katie Melua's mobile, I'm trying to compose a tour song that has a modern twist, (something the younger tourists will be able to relate to), and I assume she's got access to up to date bicycle ownership stats in most large towns and cities worldwide. No long now, no long now.

Katie Melua:
Don't frett Onny, I can confidently state there are 23785 bicycles in Galway. (No, I couldn't get it to rhyme with anything either Big Stuff, hence the choice of Beijing)

Big Stuff:
Thanks for that Katie, I'll probably just stick to Wild Rover then and get Billy to play the Irish anthem on his mouth organ instead ( He must know the whole tune by now).

Onny who else:
Sorry Big Stuff had to scrub Katie's number Pauline wasn't happy about it, and besides that Katie never phoned me back I feel used and violated.
I've a good mind to sell my story and put the monies towards the slush fund.

Big Stuff:
Great idea, an extra £3.99 will go a long way.

To all players for whom I do not have an e-mail address - a couple of weeks ago, I asked you which night you would prefer for the Players' Awards Night. Very few people have stated a preference. Could you please let me know by midnight tonight (3rd March) which night you would prefer - Friday 21st April, Saturday 22nd April or either. Please e-mail me at DonBarty@aol.com

Seeing as Poet felt obliged to insert a joke they'd received about last Saturday, here's one I got! Thanks to those who sent it to me!


URGENT TRAVEL NEWS FROM THE BBC


England supporters awaiting the arrival of the 'Grand slam express'
are advised that due to a points failure and subsequent derailment at
Murrayfield, the 18.12 from Edinburgh has been cancelled.

Further bad news as the A1 south has been blocked by a large number
of wheel less chariots. Police advise that any owner of a vehicle
unable to swing low, should call Scottish emergency services on
0900-GETITUPYEEZ, and await the arrival of someone coming for to carry
them home.

Kind locals are believed to be keeping distressed England supporters supplied with large amounts of humble pie, although sour grapes are available if necessary.

Ode to the English Rugby Team

Ye come up here tae paradise , tae beat us at your game, Aw wind and p*ss and full o' sh*t, yer a' the bl**dy same.

Ye caw yersels World champions, the nations most elite, But Scotland are the greatest noo, cos yuv just been f*ckin 'beat.

A game that wis invented, fur English gentlemen,No Highland Jocks wie tartan frocks, well bl**dy think again.

A baw that's shapit like an egg, it's jist a stupit farce, Bit ah suppose it makes it easier, tae ram right up yer a*se.

So git back home an lick yer wounds, yer a bunch o stupit fools, It's time fur you tae cheat again, and change the f*ckin rules.

Rugby,fitba, cricket tae, yer jist a shower o chancers, Stick tae whit ye dae the best, you Morris f*ckin dancers.

before I forget... good luck to all going to the Emerald Isle on Okidoki tours. I wish I was going with you...but the brownie-point bank is overdrawn.
Please post your top stories here when you return so that the old boys can dream of past glories.

Bazz:
I doubt there will be any decent stories Paul because as you know Guinness tastes horrible in Ireland, the atmosphere and hospitality in the pubs will be stale and all the Irish Lasses will be repulsed by young men in kilts. To be honest I can't wait till the flight brining us back home from what will no doubt be an uneventful and uninspiring weekend of pish!!

Bertie:
I thought the only rule on tour was (apart from everyone is required to buy the Oki-Doki Tour Executive Managment Team a pint!!) that what goes on tour stays on tour - apart from the obvious side effects of Guinness on the tummy for the week after the tour!!! If anyone does have any stories to tell then you've obviously not had enough to drink! Have a good one guys!!!

Big Stuff:
Well said Baz. I've actually booked tickets for the Galway Peat Bog museum which, according to the leaflet, details the history of Peat, and I shall spend most of the weekend there. PS, any chance of you calling round and talking down the tour to the current Mrs Mac as she seems to have the wrong end of the stick on the matter?

minto:
Aye you're probaby right , I'm glad I'm not going...Dublin is a miserable place.I remember that bar in Dublin where that Scottish guy with the guiness hat stood at the bar with only a sporran on.I wouldn't want to see that again.

Fantastic atmoshere in the Club for the Scotland v England match - but where oh where were all our players?

Calum:
I believe some attended the game, where others were in edinburgh for the atmosphere.

Pud:
Indeed- cracking banter, beer was flowing, me and Baz were there what more could anyone ask for- ken.

lap dancers would of been the icing on the cake pud!!

Here, here Pud. Are you sure you weren't in Arran rugby club SS cos there was plenty players there, past and present. Quite a few lads were up in edinburgh for the game, do you hold that against them?

i follow the youth team. and i am disappointed that this site seems to be for the senior teams. the youths are the future of this club, is this site for all players or just a certain few.

Offended:
Paula,

If you were to read the comments of congratulation througout these pages. If you were to understand the encouragement given to the younger players by the older players you would be less inclined to make such ridiculous comments - speak to the players.

Gus:
paula....I try my best to keep these pages updated for the 1st xv to the u15's....if you feel there is a 1st/2nd team bias...then I'm happy to put up whatever you feel should be up for the youth teams.....send then to annanrfc@hotmail.com

Big Stuff:
Paula,
As Michael Jackson said "I believe children are the future..." and I'd say the Club has pretty much the same attitude. ( Mind you he also said "I know you're only 10 but come into bed and you can have a free go on my funfair" but I can assure you the club didn't agree with him in that respect).

Alan Robertson:
Paula, I prepare the newspaper reports and rely on reports of games to be submitted to me by no later than a Monday night following the games. If I don't get one I can't incude in the Club report and likewize it can't be included on the website match report section. All of the organisers senior & youth know the system.

Don Barty:
Hi Paula - you might be interested to know that Annan RFC have nominated the entire Youth Section for "Team of the Year" in the annual Annandale & Eskdale Sports awards. Also, the publicity which was generated for the seven players who have gained selection for Glasgow also came from the Club. We value all of our Youth players very highly and we have tried to publicise that fact throughout the season. This Club certainly is not only about the First XV. All teams have equal status and I hope that everyone sees this as the way forward.

Big Stuff I have read your profile and am amazed you omitted from the most embarrassing moment the time you danced about joyously celebrating a "win" against Hutcheys only for me to tell you it ended 17-17.

Big Stuff:
Good point well presented Baz, I forgot about that one. In my defence though, with the passage of time I had almost convinced myself that a draw had been unexpected and therefore worthy of a public display of positive emotion. Obliged.

Bob:
Big stuff I have read your profile and found it both funny and informative- soup IS the way forward. However I remember the time at Costorphine when your front tooth fell out whole, and you spoke with a whistle for a few days, and am surprised that this hasn't made your profile either. See you in Galway

Big Stuff:
I never did find that tooth Bob, rumour has it Barry picked it up, pocketed it and placed it below his pillow that night (beside the crusty sports sock he kept there for lonely moments)in the hope that the tooth fairy would leave him a penny. Glad to hear your going to Galway, i'll keep you a ticket for the Peat museum.

and finally bruno.
after all he keeps telling everyone he is the best player the club has ever produced.

I know better than you:
No, Bruno says that he is the best HOOKER that the club has ever had!!

I know better than better:
Ah, not so, Bruno has always deferred to Jack Thomson on the hooker issue.

Don Barty:
I agree, Jack Thomson was the best hooker of his era.

Broon:
Deferred to Jack I have, however, he never played against me! Got to confess that after playing (sort of!) in the back row last week (for the opposition!)I long to be back in the middle of the front row where I belong. Any of you youngsters want lessons in hooking - speak to Jack.

Don:
Hi - this is the real Don Barty speaking. the above comment is not mine. My personal dream team has been submitted on paper - and my views are between me and the selection committee.

The Real Don Barty:
Salutations to all of my inane imitators, it truly is flattering to see so many striving to be me within these pages. However their sentence structure is positively barbaric and lays bare their unfulfilled souls. My choices of course would be the entire third team with the addition of Bertie and Jack Thomson.

I'm Bartycus:
Being club prezi you wood think i wood no that we diny hav a third team!!so it must be an imposter

Bertie:
Now I'm offended, what do you mean the entire 3rd team plus Bertie and Jack Thomson? I was a 3rd team player and the only reason I ever played for the 2nds was because we didn't have a 3rd team (or indeed a 4ths etc.). Mind you, I did run the risk of getting kicked out of the 3rds because I went to training!!!

Dream Team Promotions:
Don, if you've submitted your dream team nominations on paper (which I hope more of you are going to do, not long left to cast your votes now) could you let me know where it is as I don't appear to have recieved it yet! Remember to hand all entries into the bar for your chance to win prizes!

bo selector:
yeah not long left - only 50 days, better get my skates on (why is bo not available for selection?)

Good to see a lot of votes being cast on the Dream Team page. Remember you can also put your selection down on paper for a chance to win a prize if your selection agrees with our specially selected Selection Committee! Entry forms available behind the bar - only £1 an entry and the money goes towards club funds so the more entries the merrier - and the more entertaining this will be!

Mrs Smith:
I refuse to enter as Smithy isn't listed.

Mr Smith:
So do I

Alan Smith:
Count me in too Mum and Dad, it's a disgrace, wouldn't have happened at the fitba club

Colin Smith:
Dito

Rather odd:
Are Baz & Smithy brothers? I'm sure I recognise Baz's mother's handwriting in the message above (good apostrophes)

Andy:
Who was on the selection committee for the selection committee?

Dream Team Promotions:
Me again! Well we can fully sympathise with the Smith's regarding the ommission of young Graham from the squad, I was as dumbfounded as the rest of you - surely just an oversight by our panel! However, fear not, part of the entry form allows you to enter comments about anything you want so you can still enter the competition and vent your frustration about Grahams ommission - remember, there will be a prize for the most amusing comment so it's well worth a try! As for who is selecting the selection committee - when we have decided that it'll still be a secret! Get those entries in!

Plod:
Smithy wasn't entered because he's not good enough compared to those who have gone before. Just not hard enough!

smithy:

Any comments on player of the year runners?

observer:
must be one of the young lads this year possibly michael griffin for his solid performances in the centre or craig mccann for his kicking performances and maybe an older head like smithy is in the running

another observer:
Sam would have walked it if he had stayed for the full season - my other choice would be Smithy.

Yet another observer:
Would have to agree definate change in team since smithy has been back. My choice.

Calum:
Griff has to be up there he has constantly put in solid performances aswell as many moments of brilliance

With 4 (or 5) very important training sessions ahead for the 1's we want every 1st team player committed to making as many training sessions as possible. If you can't make a sesh or you're gonna be late it's you're responsibility to contact (phone,text, e-mail,voicemail) me, Kenny, PC, or Baz beforehand. Get a run or weights sesh in if you can't make it. Above all, stay focussed on us winning the 2 remaining games (cos we can!!)
See yuz at Violetbank.

Detracting slightly from the theme of the current league predicament, I would just like it recorded that I am excited about the forthcoming Ireland tour. Is anyone else experiencing this emotion?

Onny have you found out about the best places to go etc yet?

Bux:
Stuff, if you're more excited than you were 2 weeks ago when you an ma bro' put in a tuesday night training appearance (old skool!)That's SCAREY !!!

oki doki managingdirector:
Thats your remit big stuff having welcomed you into the management team, I know you won't let us down given the splendid job you did two years ago you provided the boys with a splendid cold buffet free of charge of course.
If that wasn't enough you introduced us all to the Arlington a magnificent venue a sunday never to be forgotten it will live long in the memory.
You have laid down the benchmark bigstuff a tough act to follow I have every faith in you that you will come up trumps once again.
I think your wasted in the police force im sure you could make a career out of being a tour guide, a lot of the boys thought you were lying in bed nursing a hangover how wrong they were you out there doing the groundwork.

Bertie:
Well done Big Stuff - was in Dublin last weekend for me birthday and based on the happy experiences in the Arlington on the last Oki-Doki tour, we decided to go there on the Saturday for a few pints o the black stuff and it's still as good (although the music and the dancing hasn't changed a bit!) Excellent recommendation!

Big Stuff:
Onny, I feel somewhat restricted as I can only vouch for how good a place is up until 9pm, this of course being my usual bedtime on tour. If it is to be my remit then I'm afraid you night owls are on your own.
Glad to hear you enjoyed Dublin Bertie, Barry Graham was wondering if you happened to find a 1 euro coin in the Arlington, he lost it 2 years ago, over towards the toilets apparently. He's phoned there every week since (using Andy's phone) but it's not been handed in yet.

Onny who else:
Im sure I seen Billy's pick it up and attach it to his little toy so he could tease Barry with it.

Bertie:
Billy got a cracker wi that disappearing note trick last time in Dublin - the look of sheer delight on the buskers face when the generour Mr Henderson dropped a 5 or 10 Euro note in their fiddle case, followed by the look of bewilderment as it promptly disappeared from her case! It was a classic! Top room mate Billy by the way!

Also Baz, if players are prepared to set these standards for themselves, ie Robert Currie, Andy Render,Keith Hogg & yourself to an extent ( i'm sure there are a few others)then coaching a group like this is an enjoyable experience, but when you only get 8 or 9 at training it becomes a slog. Have a thought for PB & KW who give up their time for you. If you set yourself high standards then no one would have to sound like a McGauchie as you put it.

Big Stuff:
Well said Shaun. By the way hows the TV career going?,I hear Jonathon Davies and Jerry Guscot are craping themselves!

annoyed:
Like I`ve said before, if we put as much effort into playing as we do on the guestbook we would have no problems whatsoever!!

Bazz:
I hope I didn't cause any offence Shaun, I was just referring to the time you banned the eating of pie's, cakes etc from the bus on away games. I was not dissing your character.

Bertie:
Excuse my ignorance people (which of course you all have been for a long a long time!) but what's this about Mr McGaughie being a TV star?

PC:
I think he was commentating on the wales v scotland U21s or U19s game.

Bazz, sounding like a McGauchie as you so eliquently put it is the only way this club can survive . We will never have the biggest playing numbers so we have to buckle down and set HIGH STANDARDS. This does involve eating properly and training more than twice a week.Its no good talking about it you have to act. If players acted then maybe the Hoggy's would play and we would keep hold of the Snowie's that come through, otherwise we will just end up a pub team

Looks like game against Penrith will not now take place, but 2nds are away to Newton Stewart in the 2nd XV league.

Details of the Sportsmens' Dinner will be with you very soon. Friday 5th May is the date and the star "turn" is John Gahagan, ex-Motherwell footballer and one of the most sought after speakers on the after-dinner circuit. Other speakers of note will also be appearing. Keep your eyes on the website and on notices in the Club. Tickets will go fast - so get yours as soon as finalised details appear!

The format of the Players' Awards Night is also being discussed at the moment - the provisional date is Friday 21st April. Again, details will be with you very soon.

player:
any chance the players night can be a saturday night instead coz some of us work on friday nights

Don:
The Players' Awards Night has been on a Friday night for the last three years - we will do some asking around the players before deciding on a Friday/Saturday - but that weeekend (21st/22nd April) is the most likely at the moment.

Being an optimist Bigstuff, I'd say that we should be concentrating on the weeks ahead and putting 'that bit extra' in.
90% of the 1st team are all young lads and have no excuse for not doing extra training. So lets dig deep lads and aim to win these last 2 games. You never know, that might be enough to keep us up.
Lets have loads of encouragement.
The 2nds should also be looking to finish the season on a high.
All this can only happen if players commit themselves to train during the week.

Big Stuff:
PC please dont think I am being a critic, that was the last thing on my mind. The numbers at training suggest that it is only the same few faces that are prepared to put that extra bit in which simply isn't enough (I looked up at 7.30 last night and there only appeared to be 8 or 9 senior players out training)my point was that even if we do stay up what is that going to change from this season? PS I havent been there this week due to work.

PC:
Bigstuff, I didn't see it as criticism and fully understand what you are saying. I know that you are the first in line to offer support and encouragement.
We do need to know what all players thoughts and aspirations are for the next few weeks and going into next season.

Being a realist I'd say its time to think about next season now, lets not wait until the end of the season when nobody's about (although going by training that appears the norm already)Get talking amongst yourselves lads and decide who's going to do what and come up with ideas for both on and off the pitch to turn things around. It won't just happen.

belly:
big stuff there has been idea mention in the past like having a day out etc scrummage training. I wouls like to see more of the young ones hitting the weights. Only seen snowy and baz out of the backs there. plus joe just before he goes on holiday!!!

Bertie:
Nice to know Baz is still classed as one of the young ones!!!!

Bob:
Club training 2 nights a week isn't enough, everyone in the 1sts and with hopes of playing in the 1sts should be in the gym a couple of times a week, and doing some sprints or running themselves. Motivate each other and do this work in groups. With a small squad everyone needs to be playing to their full potential. Come on lads. Best of luck in the last 2 games, get the wins and see what happens.

Bazz:
I wholeheartedly agree Robert, training twice per week should be the bare minimum required of players. It only takes 45mins for a good strength workout and 20-30mins for a 3-4mile run so there should be no excuses. Also, I don't want to sound like a McGauchie but some people need to take a look at their pre match nutrition!! Steak bakes, what are you thinking!!

griff:
well i dont go to the gym as i don't ave decent training programme for it an dont no wot to do for 45mins. maybe sum of the other players r like this aswell shud get summit organised to help us out

PC:
You may well be right Griff.
Snowy should have a well structured, backs orientated weights program which I'm sure he'll be more than happy to share.
Me, Bazz and Hoggy are there on Mondays and Wednesdays if anyone needs help. It's also better to do it with a parter as this creates some competition, ken.

griff:
cheers pc jst cn u 10mins ago like at training. not very many there 2nite aswell need more people there. will b there at gym on monday feel free to join in any1? am going to learn th ropes

Big Stuff:
Has there been a sponsored silence on until now - why is the lack of weight training only being discussed at this stage? Anyway, to pick up on your point about partners at training PC, Back in the day (where of course I and others allegedly live) we trained in 4 or 5's which meant there was always someone there to do weights with and encourage each other. The groups were split into shift workers etc. That might be worthwhile resurecting.

Scot v Wales

Mr Walsh wants to be a superstar referee so he sends off a player for a foul that everyone missed. How about we set up a poll for what we would like to do to that referee?

Jason White - man of the match...but Jonathon Davies doesn't know anything about the forwards.

dido:
sorry mr minto. but scott murrys apology that the welsh lad got was enough to convict even though he didnt mean to conect with his head

Big Stuff:
Where was the malice? How often do you see players landing numerous haymakers in a Guiness premiership match and they only receive a yellow at best. I don't think we'd have won anyway but Walsh is a liability and the fact he was suspended last year speaks volumes. Another example of the tail wagging the dog with NZRFU presuring the IRB into letting him back on the board. (I've never liked refs anyway!!) As for a punishment for Walsh - make him room with John Nelson in Ireland, his cheesy feet are rank

Bertie:
Just found out Scott Murray got a 3 week ban for his sins, something not right there you'd think, if he had kicked the guys head then the ban would be more severe surely, think they're trying to cover up Mr Walsh's mistake!!!!

As for Jonathon Davies knowing nowt about the forwards, of course he doesn't, we backs know nowt about what the forwards do (some of us know very little about what the rest of the team do but lets not go into that one!!)

PC:
Bertie, by saying 'we backs' you are implying that you are, or ever were, a rugby player.
No offence like, I just thought I'd mention it.
Crap news for Scott Murray and Scotland indeed.
Any thoughts on who should fill his slot for the England game? A lot of talk about bringing Hines back in but whats wrong with Mcleod? He seems pretty decent to me!

Calum:
Macleod is good enough, they could even play White there and bring Petrie in to back row

ss:
Don't alter the back row - it's the best in the Championship. Bring in Scott McLeod.

Bertie:
Fair comment PC, I'll re-phrase that one, we people that loitered about in the backs pretending to be rugby players. Now to pretend I know anything about rugby - I agree that the back-row has to stay as it is, White is great there and more use to us!

I've seen Bertie play:
PC your comment about Bertie I hope is wholly lighthearted! Bertie would train, play the games wherever they were, he never gave up even though the abuse he got he could have.

He may not have been the best, but he did his best.

PC:
Of course it was lighthearted.
Bertie was as committed as anyone when he was training and playing and really enthusiastic too.
It was just a bit of banter my friend

Also good luck to everyone tomorrow.

Does anyone know what's happening to Duns after last weekend? Are they losing points or just replaying the game?
I don't like to rely on another teams misfortune to aid our campaign but it wouldn't do us any harm!!

Carol:
Duns will be deducted 4 points plus they will have to fulfil the fixture!!

db:
No, Carol - that is an impossible scenario.

db:
Humle pie time - yes, Carol, you are correct!

wondering?:
but if they win (duns that is) - no points to them?

db:
Yes of course - points to them, but they will have been deducted 4 points before they play the outstanding fixture.

Alan:
I may be wrong but I understand that even if Duns win the replay they do not get the points - only the points differential stands, but as I say I may be wrong

smc:
who cares what happens to duns becoz we r gona win enough games 2 relegate duns and foots!!!!

What happened to the "post" regarding Langholm? It wasn't overly offensive was it Angus? Has your sense of humour deserted you?

Woo hoo - that extra half hour drinking time was killing me on a Saturday!! Good effort by the 2nd's on Saturday - not a good result but everyone tried their hardest! Good to see young Connor Trant and Johnny Crombie getting a run about as well as a young Neil MacGregor making his debut for the season! Good score for the under-15s too! It's gonna be a tense run in this season for the 1sts, lets get up there and give them our support people!!!

Big up to the U15 team who performed very well against a vastly inproved Dumfries team today. The youths took the game to Dumfries right from the word go in a fine team performance. After a slack period at the restart, Annan once again picked up the tempo and finished with a couple of fine tries. Final score annan 55 dumfries 14.
Proud of ye's all lads!! Keep it up and remember 'Fire in Ya bellies'!!

You will see it under the Message box - answer just now is ANNANRFC.

Ardrossan looked pretty impressive on their home patch. We competed well first half up there. Watch out for winger Finnegan.

The Guestbook has gotten a little mad over the past few weeks - with spammers, imposters, messages of dubious origins and content, accusations of who the posters are etc.

Please could you think before you post on the pages as it reflects on AnnanRFC.com and Annan RFC.

Whenever you post - I can see the IP address - and I will start banning IP addresses of those that abuse the above.

If you are on a shared PC - it just means no-one will be able to post from that. So think about it.

Anyway come on the lads on Saturday. Lets get it up em...

Just thought I'd put up a picture of Bubu getting a round in for all those that haven't seen him since Dublin 2004.

mr wonka:
you don"t have a picture of onny buying a round in do you Hairy?

Hairy:
Funny you should mention that, as I do have one but am unable to post it as it is currently being valued at Chrysties Auction House. I am told it may be the only one in existence.

Having just been defeated at strathendricks paddy field, I must mention the star of the game, veteran cashus who not only worked like a trooper for 80 minutes but also cajoled the entire team relentlessly. I am in awe of the man himself, a real pleaure and a treat to watch and play with. May you continue for a long time yet cashus, a true inspiration to all us mere mortals. To watch him trudge off the rice plantation at the end of eighty minutes, head to toe in sheeeeit, you knew he had given his all. BIG HAND FOR CASHUS

sick2thebackteeth:
Yes Cashus might be the wrong side of 50 but he could lend some of the 1st team a bit of his big heart as they are truely lacking in that department and should be ashamed to pull on the black & gold and perform in the manner of yesterdays defeat, no heart litte skill & some no hopers to boot.

Andy White:
sick3dabackteeth, im disgusted by ur comments about lack of heart in the first team. us players are puttin in a big effort in training and then it doesnt come off on a match day. this is demoralisin enough without sum coward slaging us of and not even giving us your name. yes some performances including saturday have been disapointing but if u look at the team which has been playing recently you will notice there is a number of young players in the team. now if you would give the team a bit of a chance they will improve. it may take time but in a couple of years if not the end of this season you will see a very very good annan side!

Alan:
Well said Andy.

Don Barty:
Well said Andy. Comments like the above are completely unnecessary. Having watched the video of Saturday's game, I still can't believe that we did not win it by 15/20 points. The pressure was there - it just did not materialise into points. The very last thing we need at the moment are cheap and nasty comments like the above. If the authopr would like to contact me, I would be delighted to have a discussion with him!

ss:
Don, you're spot on! The guys need every encouragement they can get. Whoever wrote the nasty comments above should be drummed out of the Club if his identity was revealed.

Shamus o'Namus:
What chance of success if we were all single minded, single cellular organisms like sick2thebackteeth. You're entitled to your opinion, absolutely, but this sounds more like what yon wee jerry with the 'tache and wonky side parting would blurt out just prior to his unsuccessful european tour. The lads are training hard and perhaps need some encouragement rather than a constant slating week in, week out. They also need a wee bit o luck, which they dont seem to have at the moment, but it will come. They are a good bunch o lads who work hard and hopefully they will reap the benefits sooner rather than later, but lets encourage and support and keep up their morale, instead of the indignity Keep up the pressure lads!!!

B.G:
fair fair what andy w said about the 1st team putting it in at training but what is going on with 2nd team 3 lost in a row it seems now that a lot of them are not training thinking the league was easy. Well i looked at the team on sat and since they never had Staurt,bob,belly or lec and these guys do train is seems they rely on these guys to do all the work but it was up to cash yet again to give it 100%

Broon:
BG, either you are Alan Robertson or Neil Chalmers because they were the only two having a look at the 2nds on Saturday. It is true that we should have won on Saturday and that giving away soft tries is not good. Suggesting that it was down purely to Cash is ridiculous. There were good performances from Young Moff, Garbage, Tam and Dougie Mackay in the forwards. Andrew Jancey played well and is an excellent prospect for the future. Are you a player, or just another one that opens their mouth and lets their belly rumble from the touchline?

Annan Fan:
The guy didnt say he was at the game - just that he looked at the team. Alan always seems to go under the name of Alan. and has Chalmers got access to the net yet???

Lou Smorrals:
Never said that cashus was the only one playing well on saturday, but was noticeable for the remarkable effort that he put in. The younger lads effort was noticed very much, but their glory years are still very much in front of them, whereas cashus can only play for so much longer,[years yet I hope]and is in his twilight years as far as his game is concerned.

Broon:
I agree with you Lou - long may he continue. He has been likened in the past to El Cid. Perhaps we should call him El Cash! As for the young ones, son of Cash put in the best tackle of the day. Daddy Cash had tears of pride by the time we left Moffat.

Bertie:
It's good to see as many young names in the teams! Seems like Andrew Jancey is another star in the making as well, hearing nothing but good things about him! The future's bright for sure for Annan! Who know's, one day we might see Bruno in the 1sts - just stick in young fella and you'll make it! :-)

Broon:
Bertie, the last time I played for the 1sts was either 90 or 91, I was old then! This is now the winter (early) of my playing days - I just don't know how long the winter is going to be. I appreciate your thoughts, but might suggest that you have more chance of playing for the 1sts than me!

I recall the days when the match previews mentioned kick-off times...Gus-would it be possible to mention K.O. times in future previews? Also, what time is K.O. against Hawick this Saturday? Merci. Jean

Alan:
K.O. 2.00pm

player:
is k.o not 1.30 due to it being a cup game

Alan:
KO for non cup games is 2.30pm, therefore Cup/Shield/Bowl games is 2.00pm

does anyone fancy having a match on a fri night some 6 nations weekend.We could make it an over 30s vs an under 30s. It would be a good laugh and we can just get seshed after the game in the club!!!

smithy:
hell yeah

Broon:
Why not mix it up with over 30 forwards,under 30 backs against under 30 forwards and over 30 backs. Got to give the youngsters a chance Billys.

belly:
yeah i will be up for it!! Not a bad idea broon but how many over 30 backs do you know? i can only think of 4 babe,andy render,rob graham,and willy harrison. You could add hairy but will be man enough to be up for it?

Pud:
A game, so you mean 15 a side- thats 30 people!! It would be great to see the same 30 people at training would it not? Or am I just being silly?

Broon:
What about Barry Graham and you, you used to play on the wing and at least you'd get a full game - that makes 7 as I'm certain Hairy is more than man enough, not sure he'll be impressed by you suggesting that his masculinity is in question though!

billy:
Broon i think it would be too much for barry playing against under 30s he knows he would look bad.We could have the colts in our team for the pace.That is if the under 30s feel its a threat!!!

Broon:
Yeh Billy you're probably right, the years haven't been kind to Barry. He could attempt to prove us wrong but I suppose him being nearly 50 it might be too late.

Bertie:
Sounds like a gauntlet being thrown down there Barry, it'd be rude not to accept! Good idea for a game though it's got to be the under 30's v over 30s though - we did a coaches v colts one a few years ago and it was a great success! (Only cause the coaches won!!)

solway sam:
if this game does go to plan how about we try to raise some money for a local charity by trying to get a signed rugby jersey and have a collection round the ground when the game is on! It just i was up watching the tartan army vs the over 35s and they raised a lot of money by doing this.It will give something back to the community! Maybe billy will sponsor the over 30s and joe will sponsor the under 30s!! what 10 pence joe

Broon:
Bertie, you have a penchant for stating the obvious! Why not join in the banter rather than pulling the plug on what could have been a long running saga.

Mixed teams would be fairer with no clear advantage to either side - it should also make for a better game.

Daddy Minto:
Good idea about the pre-6 Nations game. It has been suggested before but never happened. If it is organised then add my name to the list of players.

Observer on the touchline:
Watched the 1st team yesterday - there only was 3 over 30's in the team - not sure about this over against under 30's like - could be a bit unbalanced! Lets get a list of players who want to play then pick the teams from there! (Billy and Barry should be captains!) Lets get Onny back on the pitch too!

belly:
hey mr observer if we did that then it would just be 2 annan teams against each other. i think it would be better to play to play as it is. The reason why is the under 30s will have pace while the over 30s will have the experience!! it will just be a bit of fun!!
So who is going to take control of this idea then?

Broon:
Belly, I thought the idea was to have 2 Annan teams against each other! It's just the mix that needs to be decided and whether or not we play the U19 scrummage rules - more interesting if we didn't!

Tana Umaga is to retire from International rugby - do you think he'll follow Carlos Spencer and Taine Randall over to the UK in a couple of years? I propose we contact him now just in case that's the plan and see if he fancies a turn at player/coach with Annan - get in there before the English clubs do! I'm sure Billy could find him a job labouring while he's here!

lec:
Bertie SHUT UP!!

Just for the record - the Cash conversion on Saturday against Carlisle - now called the Cash Converter apparently was from a good distance out and probably at about 45 degrees or so - pretty amazing sight I can tell you! The run up took a bit of time though - the opposition just about stopped the ball taking off! Andrew Jancey played well! Looking good lads! So where did Cash and Babe get their nicknames from then?

David's brother Richard:
Bertie, if you check out his tattoos you will see CASHUS, ask him why. Also, Cash had another nickname - can anyone remember it?

As for Babe, surely it's because he used to look very young , you ever seen his attempts at beard growing.

Hairy:
Cash's other nickname is "Crumble" given to him after he refused to play in the Arran 7's plate final just because it was snowing! Wimp.

well done todays lads good results hope this is the start of you going up in the league.
Unlucky today to the 2nd but you were better in the 2nd half lets hope that some of you manage to go to training this week and whip those Garnock boys on Sat! NOW ANNAN NOW!!!!!

onny who else:
Well done boys solid performance all round if some of the backs hadn't been so selfish we cuold have had a try scoring bonus point as well.
I thought Dell played well when he came on good hands for andys try and some good driving play throughout if thats you half fit dell I would like to see you fully fit you would be awesome

Pud:
Good win indeed, however the highlight of the game is Andy Render scoring a try by diving face first over the line- have a look at the photos from the game if you don't know what I mean. Onny- I'm excited!

Andy black face:
Cheers Paul - see my earlier comment on Gus's thread.
I'll put in some practice and hopefully get a chance again at Duns!! Come on you yellows!

Broon:
Big well done to the 1sts - better late than never. Keep the faith.

backs fan:
onny- i disagree with you once again. the backs dont get enough of the ball and looked dangerous when they did. wins r what we need if a bonus point comes along then hey its a bonus!

onny thats my name:
Reveal your name backs fan or forever hold your piece.
The point I was making was this there were plenty opportunities especially in the second half when a simple draw and pass would have put players in for a score remember its a team game this could be the differance between wining and losing.
Dell and Billys managed it in the first half to put andy in I rest my case.

Hic!:
Onny you're right it is far better to be wining than losing. A nice bottle of merlot will do for me.

Why,oh why are we bottom of the league? We showed some of our potential in whupping Greenock-there's more to come. A good solid team performance. It's difficult and, perhaps, unfair to pick out any one individual. However, I thought Chocolate excelled-good driving forward with ball in hand, lots of dynamism and a good pair of hands. Well done lads-more of it, PLEASE...

Solway Sam:
We are now in 8th position.

Just like to congradulate Gus & Allan on the new improved message board and the excellent player profile page. Could'nt help notice how much Barry (Duk Bum,Swinging doors) Graham looks like Stan Laurell in his mug shot. Anyway keep up the good work and lets hope we show up well in 2006 and stay in Div.1

P.S. Have a good new year I'm off skiing !

Wee Jock Poo Plop McPong:
Here, here. I've just studied the player profile page and it really is fab. Well done to Gus for setting it all up but, more importantly, perhaps, well done to the players who provided the information and highly humourous comments and anecdotes-a spiffingly good read,honest Guv. (Gus, as I've spent hours reading profiles!, perhaps you could tweak website to indicate any changes/ additions to profiles and state player involved. Just a thought...)

Gus:
No Problem - will add new or updated to any further player profiles.

Another fine night in the club for the quiz, well done to wear the fox hat, once again a less than great turnout. top marks to grumps for a well organised quiz. SUPPORT YOUR CLUB y'all.

broon:
well some of us had a work nights out so we can't always spend our time in the club. I hear boxing night was very busy and old blue eyes onny was singing !!

Don:
Are there now two contenders for the "Grumps" title?

Wear The Fox That are the greatest quiz team ever seen in the rugby club and will probably be the very best ever!!! (Well, until the next quiz night!!!)

sauny bean:
yes don, two grumps now, did ye look in the mirror?

BROON:
Alas I could not attend as I had children to look after. Works night out - hah! I dream of those. when I have something to post, believe me I will. To the name nicker - Bog off, you're just being a tw*t.

Merry Christmas everyone! Have a great time and an excellent New Year! Looking forward to another year of banter on the guestbook! Keep up the good work guys - on and off the pitch!

Broon:
Merry Christmas to you Bertie, maybe you can make a come back for the oft hinted at but hasn't happened yet 2nds mini tour at the end of the season. Arran, Riga or anywhere!

Belly:

I would have to be reminded that i was the old guy there but at least me,bob,pato, dougie and the colts that have helped the 2nd out this season. But Shame on you Andy Graham vice captain you never got in the spirit of it all!! Ya big hippopotamus

Broon:
Belly, you pissed when you scribed that? What tip? I've given you a few of those over the years - you're still here though! How many pints do you owe me now?

Anything been arranged this Saturday seeing Dumfries games are off??

The real PC:
Training is scheduled for 10.30 on saturday morning.
Should be something similar to Bob Cs sesh on Thursday, fun but beneficial, so could everyone try to make it.

Many thanks to all of the Youth players who worked on the bag packing at Somerfield on 22nd December. Thanks also to the adult supervisors - Paul Nicholson, David Bell, Mark Johnson and John Panczak. The result was an excellent sum of £796.44. Well done everyone!

Just heard that Saturdays game is off. How about a casual game amongst ourselves.10 a side,12 a side,15 or 20 a side however many turn up (Colts to Chalmers all invited).Nothing too serious, just a run about with extended breaks for a fag (Cash, Broon, a beer or a slug of the old hipflask if its cold then down to the club for Meester Mintos shenanegins etc.
Repost if up for it

belly:
yeah old man hairy i will be up for it will get the beer sweated out from the friday sesh!!!!

Daddy minto:
Brownie points in the bank, green light from the boss....so we are good to go for party games. How about 5pm start in the club so even if there is a match everyone can take part? I think there could be cracker eating, spoons (the fastest game in the world) and, of course, the annual boat race. Any other ideas?

Muff, bring the giant gengha.

Bertie:
Nice comment there from Belly about Old Man Hairy - it was a scary sight to see that the oldest player at the players night on Saturday was in fact the evergreen Mr Bell himself! What a young team we have! On another point, whoever paid my consultant lots of money to tell me not to play rugby again will be glad to know it was money well spent!! Poop!

Ex coach McG:
Did'nt know you played rugby in the first place berticus. It did'nt look likr rugby to me !!

Bertie:
You do of course have a point Shaun - you spotted my deliberate mistake by calling it playing but playing is the generic term we use for what those on the pitch do - even those of us there to just make up numbers! I stand corrected!

annan fan no 1:
Bungle i do believe someone is pretending to be Shaun (god know why) cause they did break the mould when they made him!!
So don't bite my old son i saw a big improvment in you as years went by!

Bertie:
Cheers Annan fan no. 1 (really wish folk'd stop using aliases!) Def felt I was getting better with all the training, was certainly enjoying it more and more! Think it was starting to look more like rugby as well, close but not quite!!!!

pc:
Meet up for half ten if you want a run around before you stuff your faces over the next few days!!!!

I've just retired again:
half TEN inthe Morning! Clucking Bell

Thanks to those who sold Bottle Draw sheets - profit £1020. Slightly disappointed that a number of people didn't bother - we could have raised a lot more!

Don:
Prizewinners' list is posted inside the Club entrance. Please uplift your booty this week. Good to see that a number of Youth players had winners - thanks to the Youths who sold sheets.

Big Stuff:
Well done indeed lads. Throw away the rear view mirrors, ignore the turn off for Nostalgia Lane - there's no looking back now. You've woken up this morning as Winners (probably very hungover Winners but Winners nevertheless) and doesn't it feel mighty fine. Obliged.

Don:
Great win on Saturday - well done! Pace, commitment, self-belief - they were all there. Now let's start motoring and show the rest of the league what we're made of.

Red van rental:
Yes lads well done, its been a comin for a wee while. Keep yer heads up noo and get some mair wins under the belt.

If anybody has borrowed red socks from the bag in the Violetbank store could they return them. Thanks.

Don:
"Borrowed" is a very charitable word David. From my understanding, there are 6 pairs missing. If they are not returned pronto, the Club will have to buy a replacement set for colour clashes. So, fingers out those who are responsible and return them to their rightful place immediately please.

Hairy:
Dorothy had a pair on last night?

Best Nicknames
It's time to lighten the tone. Christmas and all that pish!
So I was looking through the photos on the site and it got me thinking that everyone used to have a nickname- may'be they still do?
Anyway here are a few of my favourites - can you tell me who they are? why they got them? and add some of your own.
Rigsby
Milkfloat
Howser
Watery
Bubbles Groper
Duck Bum
Whisper
And a quiz question to finish
Which ex player used to push an imaginary wheelbarrow around the pitch during a game?

Bertie:
Milkfloat was John Deakin - something to do with only having one speed. Howser - Douglas "Free Fall" Paul, cant remember why. Whisper was the noisy Pete Armstong! Duck Bum - I'm sure that was one of the Graham brothers nick name in a tour programme - something to do with his overwhelming generosity! As for the imaginary wheelbarrow - I know big Kieron has a running style that looks like that at times but he still plays!

Bob:
Can you tell us neil, where did the nickname 'hairy' start?
Peeheed is my favourite nickname

AR:
Rigsby was BooBoo I think due to his landlord tendencies, Howser after Doogie Howser MD - the child doctor/genius (Doogie Paul and his scores of A grades), Bubbles was Stevie Carr after his cgat up technique and the wheelbarrow man is our own tour rep Onny, last seen doing laps of a ruck at GHK! Other good ones are The Lip, Startled, Gadget and C.O.A

Big Stuff:
Rigsby is in fact Taggart and it came about from his fatigued stance at lineouts when he placed his hands on his kidneys a la (as Swan would say!) Rigsby

Big Stuff:
Watery is of course Scissor Hands and originates from an unfortunate incontinence incident during Post match celebrations at our very first National league game v RAF Kinloss.
I am however puzzled as to how "Clanny" came about his nickname and I wouldnt even begin to contemplate the origins of "PC"

NIREX:
Hairy, things must be pretty quiet on that night shift then!

Hairy:
I wasn't at work I'm off 'till Boxing Day. ho ho ho
Bob; the origins of my nickname are lost inthe sands of time.

Hairy:
a la Dean Richards I can picture him saying it now Big Stuff and doing the actions Class

Bertie:
Who was Scissor Hands Big Stuff? I know there are a number of contenders but can't remember who the original was!

fan no 1:
stu was the scissor hand bertie mind you i think we should call the other stuart (wyllie) it now he seem to drop a lot of passes these days

Onny who else:
Mmm Big stuff now how did that name come about?
Maybe his mum used to stuff him with copious amounts of food and drink?
Or maybe he started life in a puppeteer's shop you know like Pinochio and the puppeteer got carried away with the stuffing you know where i'm coming from? answers on a posycard please.

Curious:
So how did you get your nickname then Onny?
How did the name chocolate meltdown come about?
How did rio get his name( i heard it was something do with his time in Brazil)
how come Barry graham not got a nickname in the club?

Not a watcher - honest!:
Barry Graham is known as Tiddler - you ever been in the showers with him you'd know why!

Bertie:
Still a few answers missing here - who was The Lip and has Startleds nickname got origins on the rugby pitch or has he really been caught in a cars headlights! Gadget was one of the Buckley brothers was it not! Where did Daddy Minto get the nickname Tosh that sometimes appears?! Going further back in time - where does Dicey's nickname come from?

onny who else:
while at primary school someone called me Johnny onny and the name stuck me finks it was Bug Crawford.
Chocolate was aptly named because he could never get through a game without the sponge man or Marion coming on,
Billys once ran a book on him and Dougie Pagan throught one season to see who would melt the most as they both suffered from stage fright.

Broon:
Bertie, Startled is short for "Startled Rabbit" which is how he looked when he ran - one of the many names gifted by Cash.

Gus, the web site improvements are excellent and this guestbook is pretty busy too. Well done.
The comments are getting a bit narky which is predictable when the first team isn't going well i.e.its cold, the mud is thick, the other team's got more Kiwis..... If the firsts can get a win on Saturday then it'll change ...the sun will shine, Muff will get a woman and the beer will taste better. Get angry at those soap doging weegies and give your fans a Christmas present.

Gus:
Cheers Mr Minto..i have too much time on my hands...need to get out more....

smith:
Minto shock news. We did win, Muff did get a women and yes the beer tasted better

Daddy Minto:
Superb! No more primary 7 stuff. Finally the hobbits are revolting.
Billy told me that Billy was the difference - I'm sure Billy's right but I think Mrs Hogg is the answer.

Are the post-match games organised for the Dumfries & Stewartry matches? Nellie & Jason V were the stars last year.

Don:
Paul, you're the expert for post-match games. Why not come through and do it après Dumfries. (We're away to Stewartry!)

Paul, Muff has always been revolting!

It is an interesting point Pud. Don't think players were as fit 20years ago but people like Scott Wylie, Chris Lennon, A young Neil Halliday, Santa & P Minto regularly turned out for the 2's because big guys like Smy, Booboo, Scott Bonner,Jevs & Sean Buckley were in the 1's. Would tend to agree that most of those guys would be in the 1's now. Not to mention backs like Dougie Pagan, hairy & Deck Adams

Annanite:
Sounds like a good old case of 'you can only piss with the cock you've got'.

Pud:
Fair enough, looking at it like that is makes the scary point of how small we are! Not only that but how few players we have to pick from. Not enough guys prepared to train, play at a decent level, can't understand it myself. I'm just not a fan of the whole "in my day" nonsense, I get enough of that from my dad!!!

Too many penalties lost the game this week lads. Why are we giving so many away? Inexperience? Laziness? 2 people in the sin bin- not good enough.

Stick in though, you have got it in you, the wins will come. Ref didnt help either I suppose.

annan fan no 1:
unlucky yesterday lads both teams.I hear the 1st half of the 2nd was the worst this season, but in fair due i also hear 3 forward had to go in the backs do fair credit boys.As for the 1st i think the ref did not help matters but just stick in lads

Annan fan no.2:
We will always struggle when we are carrying 3 or four forwards and a couple of backs. The stansard of Div.1 rugby is so poor 20 yrs ago our 2nds could have won it. We need to get harder players in and we need to get fitter/bigger tho you can see the difference Smithy has made. Application by the players could keep us up but I don't see it happening.

Pud:
Good possitive stuff Annan Fan no.2. Yeah I'm sure the 2nd team of 20 years were far better than us!Rose tinted glasses me thinks. However if we put as much effort into training as some people put into writing rubbish we'd be in prem 1 before you could say- "it wasn't like that in my day"

Wish I could still play:
The game was much more physical 20 years ago. It's faster now and skill levels are generally better. No doubt that players were harder though - they had to be. Current crop couldn't live with teams from that era. There are no rose tinted glasses required - it's a fact.

You lot play well but seem to lose the plot and games you should win. Where you are now is a legacy of where we were - make us proud again - you can do it.

AR:
A legacy - what sh*te - the current team is competitive in the league at the moment, very few games have been lost by huge margins but the breaks have not been going their way, losing is a habit and as soon as it is broken there is still a chance for the team, come on lads lets give Dalziel a beating

Pud:
Wish you were still playing- Could be the naswer to our problmes eh? I watched a lot of last season from the side lines and admittedly it didn't always look so I think it is hard to judge. I'm sure if you could go back and watch yourself 20 years ago you would get a shock and realise that maybe you weren't that great!

Legacy, harder 20 years ago etc- I just don't buy it. We'll keep plugging away and the wins WILL come

GRIFF:

Please note that ticket orders for the Six Nations home matches against France (5th February) and England (25th February) should be made by 2ist December and there are favourably reduced prices for children. The Club has received a reasonable allocation for both matches. If, however, we do not sell all of our allocation, future allocations will suffer and will be based on this year's figures.

Maybe the reason players are unavailable is cos they realise that there is more to life than rugby. It's great if you have nobody else to think about or no life outside the club.

Bertie:
More to life than rugby - what a strange concept! As for life outside the club, that might explain where the Saturday night crowds have gone!

team player forever:
well if there was more to life than rugby maybe you and the rest should of let the club know that in august and not been kidding on you #@*%!ing loser

For those who don't already know, the players xmas night out is on the 17th Dec. The 2nds are at home and the 1sts are away to Dalziel.
The theme is 'groups of 4' eg. the teletubbies, the Beatles, Santa and 3 elves/reindeer etc.
Grub will be served in the club accompanied by copious amounts of pop.
I think we're meeting around 7pm but will tell you for definate soon.
So get your groups organized and get yourself there. It'll be a 'reet laugh

who is/was the best out of;
P.Buckley or S.Buckley
K.White or A.White
E.Currie or R.Currie
A.Muir or C.Muir
S.McCann or C.McCann
Boss Hogg, K.Hogg or G.Hogg
N.Moffat or C.Moffat
and everyone else that has family that hav played

knowledgable Watcher:
K White
Boss Hogg
Bob Currie
the rest are all sh**e !!

joe:
to the watcher if you have nothing to say say nothing you toool

Bertie:
Difficult one that, think a lot of the guys were as good as the other folk in the family. G Hogg starting to make a mark for himself but not as legendary as his faither. Bob Currie is probably better but Euan still a pretty decent player in his own right! Some good players in that list!

latecomer:
It's a bit difficult this one as Kenny wouldn't have made the best s.o. and I don't see Andrew in the back row. Similarly i can't envisage Euan as an openside and Bob wouldn't be in his class at pie eating.

Gus:
and we have forgotten E.Thomson v J.Thomson - hard to call...

Ally:
..... and the shags and the brothers hay and dunc and dave fisher and did don and wilma ever play. Theyre all pretty close to call except ewan who is much better than bob jsut has too much wind resistance.

Bertie:
what about big stuff and his brother matt lucas. I've never seen matt lucas charging up the pitch on the rampage ala big stuff, but then is big stuff the only gay in the village?

The real Bertie:
Hmmm, appears some eejit is masquerading as me on the guestbook, must be pretty sad to want to be me but there you go, what can you do!

No I,m Berticus:
Hard to say who would top out in these sibling and parental rivalries but nice to see one or two father and son combo's still playing for the club

griff:
wot did my uncle dan griffin play like am to young to know like. I think i'd give him a run 4 his money now the old sod. lol

Calum:
Griff your nothing compared to your uncle.

No I'm Berticus:
Young griff could eclipse his uncle but he's a bit to go yet.
Dave & Dunc Fish there woulkd'nt be much between in a few years & Paul was a bit more skillfull but Sean harder & better trainer

Excellent game yesterday lads, very unlucky. Two good performances in a row, however still lost both lets play even better on saturday and kick off our fight for survival. In the words of the Cartha coach " What the f**k are Annan doing bottom of the league".

Bring on Preston Lodge, can't wait.

belly:
good 2 nd half yesterday lads i just hope this is the start of luck that you deserve and you manage to stay up!!

Bertie:
Excellent game on Saturday - well played by all of you - very entertaining and tense stuff, brightened up a miserable day no end! Thanks to Cash for providing the huge umbrella! Well done - same again next week and the win'll be ours for sure!

Since I had nothing better to do - I thought I had better update the players profile page as its been about 7 years since the last update!!

But I need your help - go to the Profiles page (via Annan RFC Funpages) for more info

Remember - if you dont get in first - someone may on your behalf....and I am such a trusting bloke - I'll just assume its true!! Cheers Gus

Can you please refrain from adding your nonsense to every single thread on the page- I have had many complaints about how infuriating your pointless and unamusing comments are. Obliged (Sorry Big Stuff, but needs must)

Bertie:
Sorry, no can do, freedom of speech, verbal diahorrea, mental constipation and all that sort of stuff - besides, I aint added something onto every thread - yet!!!

I believe Berties comments are more often than not, witty and funny.

Just want to wish the u15's and u16's best of luck for todays game. Bring home the bacon!!!

Big Stuff:
What a strange First Prize - Bacon? Mind you I suppose Sunday will rate as the most popular day for eating Bacon so, having taken a minute to reconsider my initial bemusement, I now wholeheartedly agree with this latest initiative by the SRU. Perhaps, with the right marketing, other breakfast items could be incoporated to vary the spoils?

Gus:
Both Teams Won - and are now league champions (and winners of the bacon). Photos from the day now on line. Go via Annan RFC in Action

fan:
well done to the young pups hope the colts and the 2nd can keep the winning streak going!!! and win the league or get promoted?

Bertie:
Good point Big Stuff, perhaps they could actually have a worth trophy for Sunday games like a frying pan, ideal for cooking the bacon the said individuals are required to bring home!

Anonymous Twinkler:
Well done boys. Hopefully the 2nds will follow the lead and earn promotion for next season. With a bit of good fortune the 1sts will stay in division 1. The clus IS on the up.

Smithy:
Well done lads.

Don Barty:
Congratulations to all three Youth teams on the results at the weekend. Excellent achievement so far - keep the momentum going at training and at games! A special "well done" to those Under 16 players who put in a two-day shift by turning out for the Colts on Saturday as well. I witnessed some quality rugby over Saturday/Sunday and you all deserve great credit.

PC:
Well done lads

bob c for 1st team

Shag Fan:
Is that dyslexic for Bob S?

Freddy Fingerford:
Bob Currie plays for Aberdeen now. I know its a shame but we'll just have to live with it Annan fan

Bertie:
But Bob 'Shag' Copeland plays for Annan 2nds, granted not many people see him coz he's a bit on the fast side but I'd guess that's who Annan Fan means!!

Shag Fan:
What do you mean by fast Bertie? I trust you're not suggesting that the Shagster abuses the affections of young ladies!

Bertie:
Very dim Shag Fan! Have you seen him play, he can run very quickly indeed - so fast you can't see him (either that or his opposite number is usually sleeping!)

Enraged Shag Fan:
Now then Bertie, accusations of dimness! It is evident that you have failed to properly understand that which was written. Did you attend school?

Bertie:
My apologies, no offence meant! Just wanted to clarify it was to do with his skills on the pitch!

I've overheard some banter in the clubhouse this season about someone doing a running total of league and cup appearances - is this true and if so can the details be put on line? Tam Thorburn must be way up there, I hear he used to be a winger is this true or just club banter? Goggy must have a few too as well as Onny.

Don:
Statistics do exist for league and cup appearances since we went into the National Leagues. They were compiled on the basis of who started the matches and take no account of substitutions. They will be posted on the web pages soon.

Bertie:

What a good night the race night was for those that made the effort to show. Would have been nice had a few more members and family had also made that effort, i'm sure a bit more wedge could have been raised. Well done to don barty for the commentary and to choc for keeping things going. Also mention a big up to the large number of young 'uns who turned up and took most of the prize money too! Look forward to the next event.

lost-my-shirt:
yes big up to Don, Chocco, Bertie and the rest of the helpers and organisers for an excellent night, the only gripe was on the quality of the tapes but I guess that is out of the club's control, perhaps it can be fedback to the company we hire from? One finall request would be to try to have future events on non-pre-game evenings so that players can be encouraged and more bar takings made, i had serious gut rot following the mango and carrot juice!!

What are the highlights on the field for the Annan rugby teams over the years? What's the Annan all-time-greatest team? Let's start this debate.

As a colt I remember seeing John Getty and Dan Griffin as centres. They seemed a level above any of the opposition at that time.

Jim Gibb, Pudge and Johnny Linton were a formidable front row - and they'd make it in Middle-Earth as respectable hobbits too.Were Johnnn L and Cash our first to win representaive honours? Or was that the same year as Shaun Bucks?

guess:
Well you can put Smithy in the team for a start

stats:
surely the competition being run in the programmes this season to name the dream XV will settle one of the debates, as for highlights Murrayfield must be on there as well as the 7 champoinship wins, what about the winner takes all day at waysiders as well as the first big cup day out at GHK!

i remember the days....:
dave fisher, babe, peeheed, mcgauchie, storky, goggs, boss hogg, gibb, render, linton, bigstuff, p buckley, cashus, keeny white, minto

Bertie:
Typical, everyone focuses on all the great moments and great players all the time, what hope have those of us that were born crap got of any glory - lets have the nightmare XV next year!!

Eric:
Jack Thomson is the best hooker the club has ever had.

Startled:
Eric bloody whae? Right enough though, the auld boy was the right shape wi nae neck and had the fastest feet in the West.

Bertie:
And he still hasn't changed Startled!!

Eric Bloodletter:
His feet were mere flashes as opposed to Dicey's twinkling toes. Good to see you can write though Startled.

Bertie:
Dicey and twinkling toes in the same sentence - who'd have thought it!! Remember folks there is a dream team that you can vote on somewhere! I'm not even on the shortlist for some reason!!

More Tales of Dicey Later:
2nd row behind Dicey could be interesting - especially after some nice chappie had given him some chocolate of a laxative nature. Unfortunately shorts didn't allow for bicycle clips!

Underacheiver:
How long did the 2nds go in that league that was tougher than the 1sts were in at the time without conceding a try. 1 1/2 seasons or summit. That must be up there as top club highlight.

Bruno:
I'm the best hooker that the club has ever seen. It's a well known fact that i've been sharing with everyone for years.

Annan Observer:
Big Stuff, PC, DI Carr plus Taggart & Smiffy - Rozzers dream team front five?

Nightmare on Bank St:
Yeh you're right it is a dream XV - wake up!

PC:
There seems to be copper connection with this front 5 selection. I've got an erection that i forgot to mention and bring to your attention!

come on boys get your final payments in not long before the end of november.

Good luck on saturday lads you should have beat them at violetbank now annan now, if I remember the pitch is on a slope similar to newington so make sure you win the toss PC and play uphill 1st half if its on.

Smithy:
Obliged Onny

PC:
I very rarely, if ever, win the toss. So could do with some help onny! What do you think? Heads or tails????
I must add tho, when I was colts captain I never lost the toss.
Does tossing get harder as you get older onny???

Smithy:
PC, I think there,s two stages to being a good Tosser, when your younger as you proved in the colts and were your mature and married. Unfortunately your at the in between stage so my suggestion would be to give you Andy White or Billy the job of tossing off prior to game.

onny:
In my younger days PC I was one of the best tossers around but thankfully Ive grown out of that well I think I have as will you in years too come.

Pud:
Onny - spoke with Andy, I'll get his money to you by the end of the month

Big Stuff:
Onny, As you'll see, I've got my new Computer so it is now worth your while sending me endless e-mails requesting cash again. (Which of course I will ignore until the 30th of the month). Thankfully I Patented the phrase "Obliged" and should therefore be due a hefty Royalties cheque from Smithy for his frequent use of the word. Obliged (Copyright)

Pud:
Tell ee what Big Stuff, Smithy needs his own saying, how about "I am a big pile of pish". Has a certain ring to it don't you think? Are we there yet??.............. how about now

The Watcher:
How do you pile pish?

Pud:
It's a complex and very scientific procedure that you obviously have never been shown. I could teach you.......... but I wont cause anyone who calls themselves the watcher deserves nothing but abuse "obliged" (sorry Big stuff)

Smithy:
Got it my own copyright saying is "Jobbie"

Big Stuff:
Jobbie, Jobbie, Jobbie, Jobbie, Jobbie, Jobbie, Jobbie, Jobbie, Jobbie - still in credit me thinks. Obliged.(C)
Onnie - hows the research on the top spots in Galway coming along? Oh I do hope there's a Sinatra tribute Act on. I've started preparing for one of the side effects of a weekend on the Black stuff by stubbing Cigars out on my ring. Failing to Plan is planning to Fail.

Parochial Pete:
A day away fae Annan is a days wasted.

Bertie:
Here Big Stuff, would a nice hot curry not be a better alternative to the stubbing out of cigars, apart from the fact it'd ruin your tastebuds! Reminds me of the Johnny Cash song, Ring of Fire that one!!

I am extremely annoyed at some of the recent comments appearing in the guest book. The attitude of some people stinks. There is no way this is a one team club!! There are a lot of people other than committee memebers who turn up week in & week out & do things for the benefit of the club! Who makes the sponsors meals, who lines the pitches, who puts out the touch-flags, who reps at games, who does the DIY needed, who mans the gate on match days?? A lot of players in ALL teams turn up for training & playing - END OF STORY!! Not a single thought of how the "backroom" work gets done or by whom!! Take a good long hard look at what goes on & think about it - comments like this are starting to piss people off who commit their time.

Don Barty:
I couldn't agree more! Negativity does not help one little bit. The amount of effort put in by everyone who truly has the Club at heart (players of all ages and levels, parents,friends, volunteers - whether Committee or not) is certainly appreciated greatly by me and is what keeps us all going. I wholeheartedly concur with the sentiments of "Annoyed".

Hugh Jarse:
Great rant by Annoyed. This website is good for your health cause you get things off your chest.

Smithy:
Annoyed - (whoever you are) I agree that the "backroom" work goes unnoticed by majority of players and on behalf of them all I would like to thank everyone that assists with the club, however the majority of comments on this guestbook is merely banter between the players. There won't be many teams that get on as well as ours. Gus I'm sure you can tell by the number of hits the webpage has had recently that the lads look forward to looking at the guestbook to see what the crack is. Lastly I think you will find that any derogatory marks towards any players are from "has beens". Obliged

Annoyed at Annoyed:
If the players didn't turn up to train and play you wouldn't have a Rugby Club. Stop whingeing. Smithys's right, the players in this club ALL get on well. It is light hearted banter, sometimes things are said to get a bite - well Annoyed YOU BIT! Are you a Has Been or a Never Was? All of the players appreciate greatly the time and effort put in behind the scenes, it doesn't mean they can't carp about things.

Gus:
Smithy - you are correct - more folk than ever are coming to the page which is good and the banter on these pages is good to have. At least we have some passion about the club - regardless of the view. Will try to add new things to these pages as well. Any ideas always welcome!!! Gus

Pud:
Hiya- some cracking banter going on, me likes. However anyone who submits and entry to the guest book should put their name- people become brave and have big mouths when hiding behind a nickname

Philip Bertram:
Quite right Paul you tell them - hiding behind nicknames is terrible!

Pud:
Bertie- me hiding behind the nickname Pud is like Big Stuff trying to hide behind peaheed's heed! I think you knew what I meant, i should have said alias instead of nickname- ken

Bertie:
I ken like Pud, it seemed funny at the time when I was typing it - sorry bout that, Monday mornings and all that!!! Tis a good point though, too many annonymous donors on this page!!!

Did someone not say that Brett Merchant from Australia is coming to play at Annan because he is staying in this area?

Just been on Hillfoots webiste and see that the same Brett Merchant signed there guestbook on Sunday saying he was hoping to go and play for them if they contacted him.. Someone having a laugh?

Don:
I've communicated by e-mail quite a bit over the last week.
Three possibilities:
1. Genuine
2. Genuine but contacted a lot of Clubs initially
3. Someone taking the piss

No doubt we'll find out soon!

Bazz:
Fine detective work Smithy!! I reckon you should get a dog so you could also be a man/canine crime fighting team like Scooby & Shaggy or Turner & Hooch.

smithy:
I used to be the ultimate crime fighting team, with my hamster 'Paddy', God rest his soul, unfortunately got thrown about to much after a few scoops. Tear

onny:
Im sure you used to bring Paddy on tour with you Smithy and keep him in that rather large purple hat of yours.
Bazz tried to eat him but essay wasn't having it and saved him.

Whats all the gibbering about its simple . The league position reflects the effort being put in by the individuals. Example the Gym training book . Players most in Andrew White and Baz . Players performing well Andrew White and Baz. P.S. the only other 1st team player in the book is PC! F.S. No excuses reqd. Simple

Pud:
Fair one- my name is in there too. I admit it should be more though

Pud:
What is that picture all about anyway?!

PC:
Lec, Belly and Steve are also regulars. Jack too but he doesn't play.
Great point thats been put across many a time though. Ken

Is it just my perverted mind - or does anyone else think that the eyes above the "Read the Guest Book" look like a pair of very interesting mobile nipples?

At least 2 lots of water bottles have gone missing in last 2-3 weeks.
Anybody got any in back of car or at home please return to Violetbank.

Bertie:
There's a joke in there somewhere about losing one's bottle at Violetbank but seeing as it would probably apply to me I wont bother with it!

.:
Why bother Bertie. Nothing to say, then say nothing.

let"s have a 1st vs 2nd some time even if its on a 6 nations weekend (fri night) then go to the club and get smashed. It will also give the 2 coaches to see who is doing well in the 2nd.
Well done on sat 2nd was not a bad game it just shows that you don"t train together as a team if you di i think the score would of been in the 60"s.

Annan Player:
Referee didn't help Annan. 2nds would win and that wouldn't help the 1sts much would it. Mixed teams would be a better idea - check out some of the mixes available.

player:
well if u think the seconds wood win u might wana play the game and see wot sort of result comes of it. the seconds are playin well yes but would not cope with the firsts

Annan Player:
Player you should read my comments more fully. Mixed teams would be a much better idea. You wouldn't want the 1sts being too embarrassed would you!

1sts player:
No offence but we would dick you.

Scrubber:
fight, fight , fight, fight.

Annan Player:
I don't think so - we're bigger than you!

2 nd team:
the ist team backs would kill our 2 nd team backs but the forwards would be a good battle

Bertie:
What sort of odds is Annan Player offering for Scotland to whoop the All Blacks then?!

Annan Player:
Bertie, I do not expect the Scotland Team to whoop at the All Blacks. I expect them to play them - hopefully well. All whooping should be left for the fairground attractions, or, if we do succeed against the All Blacks I'll whoop for a whole week, I might even shriek.

callum bell:
bertie was that a hint that the 2nd are the all blacks and the 1st are scotland. even i think the 2nd are awesome with my mate mark playing for them i would love to see a game the 1st vs the 2nd

Nobody can drag the team from the bottom of the league other than the players. So switch off your TV and do more training - every day.What else do you do? Hard work is the only answer and there is still time to rescue this season.
Give the armchair critics something to praise you for otherwise you'll get shot down. That's just the way the world works.

Annan Man:
In the words of Billy Ocean "When the going gets tough, the tough get going"
Meet the challenge boys, positive mental attitude, heads up,pride and more belief - you CAN do it.

Don:
The lads don't need armchair critics, whether that's how the world works or not - they need support instead of criticism.

Annan Man:
Don, you're right, they don't need them. Paul isn't criticising them, he is, in my opinion, trying to motivate them. Pride and a positive mental attitude. Time to put away the rose tinted glasses, nearly isn't good enough. The team has got to want it, if they do they'll win. If they don't ...well!

Congratulations to the Youth teams once again on excellent results this weekend. pride of place must go to Alex Dunbar of the Under 16s who scored 9 tries against Clydebank - almost certainly a Club record.

Shag Fan:
What about the 2nds. They're looking good for promotion at the end of the season. Surely that's worth a comment!

give them some praise don:
yeah mr president what abot the 2nd it is them that are winning the games at senior level. I aint putting the 1st down i know they have been a bit unlucky with some of the games and sat proved that. But sometime people forget that if the club did not have a 2nd team then they would not have some quality players coming through to help the 1st team in case of injuries!!

ss:
What's with this 2nd team jibes crap? Why should Don respond? He was making a comment about the youth teams. When the seconds get out of the mickey mouse league there in, thats the time something might be said. Too many people firing cheap shots at the moment.

Ally:
Your right, Don should be able to comment on the youth without having to congratulate every team but saying that the 2nd team dont deserve praise until out of a "mickey mouse league" is a little hypocritical as it seems a bit of a cheap shot.

Shag Fan:
Mickey Mouse league! How long since you played a game s.s.? No matter what league it is the 2nds are sitting in 2nd position FROM TOP not BOTTOM. Some encouragement from the President might have been appreciated. Too late now though. Rumours must be true, it is a one team club - the 1sts! NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

Annan produced their best performance of the season against Perthshire. Great spirit, excellent commitment. I don't like singling players out, but the lineout was magic with Smithy taking everything.Every player deserves credit for this display. It's a pity we still have some snipers on the sidelines, when it's time for getting behind the team.

Smithy:
Cheers Don, lineout was good because we had quality throwing and lifting I was just the one that looked good because i caught it. I had the easy job. Keep it up forwards.

PC:
Cheers Smithy but you need to take some credit. It is also a lot easier to throw when you have consistently good jumpers like yourself, sam, billy ang the ever improving gogg(graham hogg)

Well played yesterday boys, should never have come home without any points. We were in their 22 for over 50% of the game. Let's take it forward into the second half of the season and get off the bottom of the league. No way we should be there.

Annan Man:
Wind 'em up Smithy. Get the team behind you and lead them forward. PC, if not yet done make Smithy pack leader.

Smithy:
Obliged Annan Man

Annan Back:
PC is the right man to lead the pack. He may not be the biggest but he puts the hits in and gets stuck into the gritty stuff. Smithy is great jumper and ball carrier but just isn't aggressive enough to lead the pack!

Annan Man:
PC is the team Captain - he does not need to lead the pack. The backrow are able to see much more of what is going on. Smithy's your man - try him out.

Chumbawumba:
yes, you sayed the sooth - arse-kicked by Perthshire. Get Marion in the team - she's got more aggression than any of the players.

Smithy is the best line out jumper this club has

Bertie:
Does that mean we're doomed if he's our best hope!!!!

big andy:
er steve i would not say to much about smithy being the best line out jumper the club has he never stole any 2nd team line balls at training(Fact)

Little andy:
he never caught a single ball on Thursday night at all (Fact)

By the way Steve- Mike Rennie wants his sweater back!

Smithy fan:
Never mind his line-out. Smithy is one of the few players in the 1sts with the right attitude. PC should follow his lead.

Don:
You're absolutely right, Steve! Smithy's performance against Perthshire proved it.

PC:
He would prob take it every time if the ball was thrown in straight tho andy.(FACT)

PC:
Guess what happened last night big andy???? Smithy took just about all of the 2s throw ins when up against belly and dougie. Smithy and Pud never lost any of our throws. (fact)

Smithy:
Darn Tootin, obviously the 2's missed big Andy jumping.

A 2nd team player has left a pair of Mizuno boots in the changing room after the Strathclyde Uni game. The only way I will give you them back is if you come to training whoever you are. Otherwise they have been feefed.

thats rubbish joe who would you put in//

Annan Man:
At 10-9 against that sort of opposition - come on! Stop the whingeing! Become a team, support each other and get the pride back - PC, your time to step up to the plate is NOW, LEAD the team - do it or step aside.

Bertie:
I hope Annan Man is qualified to criticise PC, lay off the fella, he's doing the best he can! We should support the guys and help them, not slate them!

Annan Man:
Bertie - more qualified than you might think! As for supporting the team - see my other comments. The 1sts are a winning team - they just don't seem to realise it yet. They need strong leadership, PC is in the job - he gets the flak if they don't perform. This is not about criticism, this is about motivation. Captaincy does not come naturally to all. If PC can become an inspirational captain no-one would be happier than me. Tough times, tough decisions!

Bertie:
Fair comment Annan Man! Not sure who you are but do your boots ever scream out to you in the middle of the night saying 'wear me, play again' do you hear the screaming of the boots!!! :-)

Annan Man:
My boots don't scream ever. My true identity must remain secret as I am an undercover agent for the SRU. What is the club motto? 1st team should reemind themselves of it! The river hasn't stopped doing it!

joes mate in the backs b:
correct its the forwards that are soft on saturday at marr i thought they were poofs ttho

Smithy:
Not that i'm wanting to start a fight with the backs, but Forwards one all line outs and scrums and some of theirs. O.K a couple of silly penalties but hey Joe who missed all the tackles? Whole team need to get aggressive.

griff:
i'll put my hand up 4 missed tackles at wkeend. i woz shit! soz lads

Bazz:
Miss 4 tackles in a game again Griff and I will tombstone you!!

joe doggy dog:
can't wait to see andy's shoulder crumble under the pressure of centre tomorrow, tackling is a young man's game and I guarantee I'll finish tomorrow in the centre with old man AR on the side lines!!

Andrew White is likely to be great player. Give him more games with the 2nds - then he can learn how to win, make him more confident and when he's ready he can lead by example in the 1sts.

Don't spoil him!

praise:
Andrew deserves a chance with the 1st there is not that many backs coming to training just now so why not give him a 1st team place.Maybe some of the 2nd team back might turn up.

Annan Man:
I didn't say he was too young, or that he didn't deserve it I merely think the selectors should not over expose him at 1st team level at this time.

player:
bottom line
if ure good enuf ure old enuf
its always been the same
the likes of eggy,earl,mccanns, fisher were all in at a similar age. hasnt harmed them

after playing in the same team as bob shag last weekend and seeing wat big andy has been slevering on about for ages that bob shag is a scoring machine- why isnt he given a chance in the cup games against lesser opponents?
stick it 2 marr either way!

Player:
Good point Scott, however players who want to play for the 1st need to be training on a regular basis. Bob does train but he is not a regular Tuesday and Thursday guy

Annan Man:
Bob's a great guy, but he waits for the bounce and slows up in front of tacklers. Give him the space with a good pass and he WILL score - worth a shot in the 1sts

belly:
The reason why bob can2t make training some times is because he works longs hours 12hrs or more so it is a bonus when he does come to training. Unlike some lazy buggers who won2t come to training cause they don2t want to get wet or cold.
2nd team you were a disgrace this week only 5 on tues then myself,kieron babe and rob graham.SHAME ON YOU"S !!

Pud:
I agree with Belly, not enough people at training- if you train more you get better, fitter and the game is more fun

Bertie:
Well said Pud! I know I certainly enjoyed it a lot more when I was fitter and got a bit better (relatively speaking I got better, I was crap instead of really crap!) It's not that cold and miserable once you get running around!!!

Annan Man:
Bertie, you can have an ice cream if you can clap your hands!

RUFC! Gretna is in England then!

Smithy's right, it's bodies on the line time! how much do you want it Annan? Get hoongry, Annan, hoongry! As for Hoggy, it's his decision, he has to want to play and balance his work committments. People like Cash play because they want to, they still enjoy it. Once the fun's gone it's gone. Hopefully Hoggy will come back, if he doesn't, he did a good job whilst he was here.

Good luck against the muckle toon at the weekend, and to the seconds against the bottom of the league boys.

To anyone who's interested www.plumdon.co.uk has finally been updated and will continue to do so, so have a look.

Come on boys - work hard tomorrow night at training - if you do as much on the pitch on Saturday as you do talking on guestbook & the shouting at training it should be a doddle on Saturday! PC it`s up to you to get them fired up before they run on the pitch on Saturday. As Bill would say - "get hungry", "get fire in your belly Annan"

Good luck on Saturday boys show them muckle tooners some real spirit and fire beleive in yourselves and the results will come.
Hoggy put your gun away and get your shorts back on when the going gets tough its easy to walk away harder to stay have a look at yourself in the mirror your old boy would never dream of walking away.

Come on the Annan:
Damn right - lets get into the Muckletoon!!!

Lets make Saturday night in the club one to remember

Bob:
Onny lay off Hoggy, if everyone was puting in the same amount of work on the field and off it- weights, and extra running, then the 1sts would not be struggling. Its easy to blame Hoggy for getting sick of it and leaving, but harder to blame the squad as a group. Get a grip lads- get in the gym and on the roads

hoggy:
cheers bob glad sum1 understands

Shaun McG:
Understand exactly what Hoggy ?It should'nt matter how good your team mates are or what they do during the week,just Get out there and play,it never bothered me having to play with the likes of Onny !!

smithy you have not played a full game yet so its better that guys who have been playing to go on the bench before you

Smithy:
If I'm on the bench i wouldn't be playing a full game. I've been putting in the training, played a couple of part games recently. Team needs boys in it who would do anything to beat Langholm. It's not just another game it's a MUST WIN.

Bench against the muckle toon would be great.

Obliged.

To the person who put up the message re lack of U15 info and credit - apologies I deleted your post in error - trying to get used to the new guestbook!!

It is a fair comment - if you or anyone else wants to input more to the website drop us an e-mail. We need u15 and u16 reporters...alas we can only put on-line what we are given. And its a 2 man show just now and Alan finds it hard in his old age to be at 5 matches a weekend...cheers Gus

Gus - Annanrfc.com:
We have asked the coaches to provide some more comprehensive reports...so what this space!!..Cheers Gus
