      Phuket International Rugby 10s



After last years 10th Anniversary tour to the Phuket International 10's some people would think enough is enough...not so for the ageing Pirates who come to "compete" in the Coffin Dodgers Comp for the 11th straight year. Our numbers are down to about 30 this year mainly made up of never beens with a sprinkling of has beens, a mixed bunch of tourists originating from every corner of the globe.

Our first job(or should I say our tour virgins first job) is to find Henley, the previous year he spent the off season being pampered in Chang Mai. However over the last year his fate has not been so easy, intelligence has reported he has been held in the back soi's of Patong, some reports are in a sweat shop and other more concerning reports mention a monkey, soap and a massage!!!!

As usual we take this competition very seriously and will take full advantage of all pre tournament facilities in the Bangla area in order to be in showroom condition by start of play on Friday morning. Every effort this year is being made to help minimize the "missing in action syndrome" that has plagued the team for many a year...this syndrome appears to take effect after the first game. It is a cruel affliction manifesting itself in many guises some of which include: injuries appear after no apparent contact and in the more severe cases without even being on the pitch. Disorientation which usually means getting lost in the changing room or the bar area and sudden onset of sleep, usually 2 minutes before kick off.

We continue to support The Asia Center Foundation and the amazing work that they do and are looking forward to meeting up with new and old friends on and off the field.
