Nonetheless, we're mad keen. Probably grossly under prepared and, seeing as we're taking no luggage (the joys of Tiger Airways - the Oz equivalent of Ryanair, but worse), and taking the red eye flights at incredibly unsociable hours, greatly under-estimating the scale of what we're actually doing. Still, should be an adventure. Check here at some point next week for more info!
In the meantime, as mentioned, the usual working week has resumed. Last week was crazy with all the Intercollegiate matches. Our neighbours, PAC (affectionately known as the Poufs Around the Corner), beat us in everything but the debating. But what a week - loads of cheering, school spirit and banter. Brilliant. And the Basketball was a great finale; check out this last second three pointer to win the game. No joke, what a shot.
So after that all settled down, amongst the heartache and the pain, we had a fantastic win at Elizabeth on Saturday, with me scoring another try - equalling the amount I scored in my last two seasons at school in four games at Old Collegians. With the 60-0 thrashing we handed out we secured third spot, lining up a semi against a very beatable Brighton side a week Saturday.
Don't think much else has happened really. Except a spectacular run-out! Yes, I am still enjoying it. These Aussies are so bitter. The chap next to me just said it "wasn't that good"... Its so much fun reminding them. The best bit is, apart from the Autumn Tests, which the Wallabies don't really look like doing that well in anyway, there is no major sporting contest between us this year, so I can enjoy it till June! Even if England do lose (a definite possibility), I handily explain the benefits of being British and support Scotland, which gets me off Scot free (no pun intended) as they're never expected to beat anyone. Speaking of rugby, if you're in Adelaide and want to watch a game, go to the Coopers Ale House - it will be on.
So with that I'll sign off. Best of luck to all those who have GCSE results today (the first generation to be educated entirely by Labour - you are historic!) and a well done to all my A-Level buddy's. Have a great first year! Glad some of you are still enjoying reading the blog even though it may be very sarcastic (sod off Ross!).
