On Saturday the Pythons made the trip to Condo to take on the Rams. Through a lot of injuries and work commitments the Pythons could only just rally up a team. The Condo boys leant a few blokes to allow us to have a decent bench which was much appreciated from the Canowindra team.
The Pythons started really slow in the first half and let two quick tries in. The boys regathered and started to play with a bit more aggression through Dan Bowd, Hayden Ewart and Jayden Simpson in the forwards and Kenny Turnbull and Tom Roth led the backs around well. The Rams were still able to put two more tries in by the end of the first half.
The boys started to really play a lot better in the second half and through Stu Gavin, Timmy Bray and an old Python favourite Sam Wythes the boys finally made some metres and were able to give some good balls to the backs. The boys had some fun and tried nearly every trick in the book including a lot of chip and chases which made for an entertaining game of football.
The only try for the Pythons was scored by Adam Nash who busted through the defence to scoot 30 to 40 metres down the field getting rid of a couple of would-betacklers on the way.
The final score was 37-5 though the game was played in great spirit from both teams and was an enjoyable game to play and watch.
Points went to the ever reliable Ronnie Lawrence with 3. Nigel Knight, who has been one of the most dedicated players this year, received 2 points. 1 point went to Adam Nash. Players player went to Sam Wythes in his first game back in a couple of years.
This was the last game of the year and the club would like to thank Coach John Grant who has been a pleasure to have part of the club with his presence felt both on and off the field. Thanks to all the players who played this year and got the Pythons back on the paddock after not forming last year.
A date for presso night will be decided this week and will be a fantastic night.
