After briefly panicking that their side might have to forfeit, the Betoota Dolphins 4th-graders were relieved this morning – as team captain ‘Bryza’ arrived in a local taxi – just minutes before their long-anticipated clash against the Bedourie Steelers.
Local 4th-grade captain, Bryson Yulli (30) arrived at Remienko Oval carrying a plastic bag of KFC chips and a bottle of 7Up, before announcing ‘have I got a yarn for you lot’.
Bryza was quickly ushered into the home side’s changerooms where a colts player was then forced to give him every piece of team kit he had taken off just half an hour earlier.
Teamates rejoiced as they proudly declared to the referee that they were going to be able to run an entire team, but if anyone gets injured – its off.
“Fuck me. The night-train was going off last night” said Mr Yulli, before helping anyone who would listen t0 visualise his romantic ecounter from the night before.
“[laughter] Is Gobbler here yet? He was off his head last night”
With Bryza now hiccuping ahead of kick-off, it remains unclear if he will be able to play a full 80 minutes.
