Tries: Bruce 3, Wessels 3, Morgan 1, Goodayle 1
Cons: Crawley 3, Wessels 3
St Francis continued their winning way with a well-earned 17-55 victory over Worthing Azzurians.
St Francis begin the half strongly, as surprise, surprise Tom Bruce scored to give the Saints a 7 – 0 lead. A penalty extended the Saints lead to 10-0 before Bruce went over again to put St Francis 17-0 in front.
Then it was the turn of the Debutant Richardt Wessels to go over! Richardt joins the club till the end of the season after securing a working visa with Nandos. St Francis would like to credit Nandos as a) it doesn’t run out of chicken like KFC and b) We would like to thank them with supplying us with our fine SA contingent. St Francis went into half time with a 24-0 lead.
The second half saw that man, that fine specimen of a man Tom Bruce completing his hat trick. Yet it also saw Chris Goodayle, and Angry Ant Man go over. The game finished with Wessels completing his hat trick – it was a great debut for Wessels as the game finished 17-55.
Nevertheless the main point was the return of Tom Burns a.k.a Gaston and here’s the story of how he came back to play for St Francis.
Please sing in the form of the song: Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.
Tom Burns: Who does Heath think he is?
That club has tangled with the wrong man!
No one says "no" to Tom Burns!
LeHeron: Huh! Darn right.
Tom Burns:Dismissed! Rejected!
Publicly humiliated! Why, it's more than I can bear.
LeHeron: More beer?
Tom Burns:What for? Nothing helps. I'm disgraced.
LeHeron: Who, you? Never! Tom Burns, you've got to pull yourself together.
LeHeron: Gosh it disturbs me to see you, Tom Burns
Looking so down in the dumps
Ev'ry club here'd love to be you, Tom Burns
Even when taking your lumps
There's no man in Crawley as admired as you
You're ev'ryone's favorite guy
Ev'ryone's awed and inspired by you
And it's not very hard to see why
No one's rucks as Tom Burns
No one kicks as Tom Burns
No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Tom Burns
For there's no man in Crawley half as manly
Perfect, a pure paragon!
You can ask any Bruce, Hand or Peacocke
And they'll tell you whose team they prefer to be on
LeHeron and Chorus:
No one's hung like Tom Burns
A king pin like Tom Burns
LeFou: No one's got a swell cleft in his chin like Tom Burns
Tom Burns: As a specimen, yes, I'm intimidating!
LeHeron and Chorus: My what a guy, that Tom Burns!
Give five "hurrahs!"
Give twelve "hip-hips!"
LeHeron:Tom Burns is the best, And the rest is all drips
Chorus: No one fights like Tom Burns,
Jackles like Tom Burns
LeHeron: In a wrestling match nobody bites like Burns!
Bimbettes: For there's no one as burly and brawny
Tom Burns: As you see I've got biceps to spare
LeHeron: Not a bit of him's scraggly or scrawny
Tom Burns:That's right! And ev'ry last inch of me's covered with hair
Chorus: No one hits like Tom Burns,
Matches wits like Tom Burns
LeHeron: In a spitting match nobody spits like Tom Burns
Tom Burns: I'm especially good at expectorating! Ptoooie!
Chorus: Ten points for Tom Burns!
Tom Burns: When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs,
Ev'ry morning to help me get large,
And now that I'm grown I eat five dozen eggs,
So I'm roughly the size of a barge!
Chorus:Oh, ahhh, wow! My what a guy, that Tom Burns!
No one rucks like Tom Burns
Makes those beauts like Tom Burns
LeHeron: Then goes tromping around wearing boots like Tom Burns
Gaston: I use antlers in all of my decorating!
Chorus: My what a guy, Tom Burns!
Special mention for all those who travelled down with the club, supporters, we thank you and substitutes sorry you did not get on but we do appreciate the effort every one of you made to come down!
