Away Match vs Wakefield Warriors B playing with Mick


Got there a bit late and didn't really warm up properly - as noted here my back has been decidedly dodgy over the past week or so (more so than usual) and I pulled something in the first end (playing as third pair).
Their 3rd pair were not particularly mobile albeit with some good skill - normally we would have given them the run around, but I was really struggling to get around court and making too many mistakes in general. Lost in two with the outlook pretty bleak.
Next up, 1st pair. They looked strong, with a net specialist and some heavy smashing (on both wings) from his partner. They were fresh from beating our other two pairs. Remarkably Mick and I pulled our A game from somewhere, and in spite of my hampered movement we edged it in two; 19 in both ends. Most unexpected but ultimately crucial.
2nd (mixed) pair to finish; probably their weakest. Our level tailed off somewhat, but it was enough to triumph again to ~17.

Brent / Tom picked up two, Sean / Abid one; overall 5-4 victory a great result.

Less good was the fallout for me. Adrenalin masked it to a degree whilst playing, but as soon as we stopped I was really struggling. Made a half hearted attempt to stretch before driving back. Then spent easily an hour stretching as best as I could - all leg muscles aching from having to overcompensate. It didn't work and the next morning I could hardly move.
