THE Manly Marlins’ fourth grade side have advanced to next week’s preliminary final without making a tackle after opponents Gordon were sensationally booted out of the competition in rugby’s version of The Hangover.
The Marlins had been due to play the Highlanders in a semi-final on Saturday morning at Manly Oval.
But the Sydney Rugby Union has suspended the Gordon team after they forfeited their qualifying final against Norths last Sunday.
It’s understood that only seven Gordon players fronted up for the game.
Coincidentally, there was a buck’s party for a Gordon player on the north coast that weekend.
Honestly, you can’t make this shit up. Our kind of rugby team – Gordon fourth grade, we salute you!
