Griffins Sketchy Rep at Boozy Rugby Lunches Remains Intact

By Master Griffin | 28 February 2020

FAKE NEWS:

Former President Todd Trench has packed his wingnut-like melon into way too many scrums over his 25+ year rugby career, so the Griffins have not only come to expect, but also let him get away, with the odd social faux par.  Recently the rise of CTE cases across the football codes have revealed the rugged impact on the human brain, and we're just hoping the former pres doesn't end up a test case in later life.
Today's example at the NHRU pre-game piss-up function at Merewether Surf House prior to the Force-Wildfires fixture has us just a little worried though...

Former Wallabies hard man hooker Jeremy Paul was also at today's corporate throat lubrication expo and was just a little taken aback when Trench greeted him with "Heeeeeyyyy ROBBOOOO!! Geez how long has it been mate??? Must be 30 years or more! I remember you used to pack down with Dad at Port Hunter yeah? Remember when you snotted that pesky little winger from Carlton? Those were the good old days weren't they?? Hahaha..."...
Before Paul could get a word in edgewise Trenchy was waxing lyrical about growing up in Stockton and how he used to get chased out of the Washtub for drinking when he was 12...
Then as Todd was mid-hiccup, Paul took his chance to push him off his chair and tell him to wake up to himself.
"Mate I'm sorry, but I think you've mistaken me for someone else.."
"Naaahhh Bullsh*# mate... you're bloody Robbo". 
"Listen Champ... let me refresh your memory before I take you out the back... don't you remember the Bledisloe Cup 2000? John Eales? Kicked it after the siren to win? Yeah... he was packing with his head up my backside that day..."

Mildly embarrassed, Trench decided to leave the world cup winning hooker alone for the rest of the afternoon...
After Paul made his address to the attentive rugby crowd Trenchy left the function a little early, on his way out brushing past our reporter he quipped ... "Hey matey have I got a scoop for YOU??. PHIL KEARNES IS HERE today, you should totally hit him up for an interview"...


If you'd like to register to play with the Griffs this year you can just download the Rugby Xplorer app and search Griffins RUFC, that way you'll help Trenchy retain his sanity just a little longer if you take his position in the side... (please)
