On Sunday we were treated to a 1-1 spectacle in the Hunter on a delightfully sizzling, lazy spring afternoon.
Dominating possession, the Wanderers looked the goods in the first half. After much anticipation of his return to the Red & Black side, Mark ‘the King’ Bridge scored on the back of a Jumpei master class in the 16th minute.
With this heat on the pitch, brought heat in the stands. Displaying to the ladies of Newy, what their mama gave them. Chanting ‘who do you sing for’ had spectators wishing they were singing in their direction. The Poznan especially, was a delight. The town of Newcastle haven’t seen this many rolls since their last bake sale.
Unfortunately for the eligible bachelors in the Red & Black Bloc, their party was brought to a halt. Not due to any unruly behavior or potential hazards towards society but by Newcastles finest, Dimitri Petratos doing what he does best; pounding a screamer into the box in the 68th minute, one minute sooner than most women would’ve hoped.
The Wanderers face Melbourne Victory on Sunday Night, if Vedran Janjetovic can pull himself away from the low-fat organic vegan smashed avocado on toast Melbourne has to offer, they might just be able to bring back 3 points for the RBB. Which we all know is important early on in the season as preventative work towards the points they will cause to be docked in the later rounds.
