Titanic Battle in Devonport As French Are Downed

Posted by on Sep 26, 2011 | Leave a Comment

North Shore Rugby Club was host to its own clash with the Men in Blue last weekend, when the local Dad’s Army team took on the French Foreign Legion.

Around 150 spectators turned up to enjoy the ideal playing conditions, and to watch some of their husbands and dads roll back the years in a hard fought and reasonably competitive game of rugby.

The local lads eventually came out on top 21-12, after enduring not only some stinging runs and great passing skills from the French team but some eccentric reffing from the Foreign Legion’s ring in whistleblower.

The Speculator was there to soak up the atmosphere and take a few snaps, a selection of which are below.
