I loved playing a team sport when I was younger but my days of team sport are long gone, I guess that is why I so enjoy watching others participate in a team sport.
As you know I went to watch my Melbourne Rebels play the British and Irish Lion on Tuesday. I was at the match ground early as my husband was on babysitting duty and he dropped me at the station before continuing on to my daughter’s house. There is something quite eerie about being at a football ground when there is hardly anyone there.
Our seats gave us a good view of the action and we were fortunate to have many Lions supporters around us! Before the game started we went to the concourse to have a drink and a bite to eat and chatted with a few of the Lions supporters.
The photo is not of the best quality but you get the general idea.
The Lions proceeded to demolish the Rebels but the Rebels never gave up. I was happy that they played as well as they did. It is an occasion that each of the Rebels players will remember, being part of a team that played against the British and Irish Lions.
