New 3rd team signing
Wivey 3rds rugby captain Rob Aplin has found what he considers to be a vital asset to take the team forward into the forthcoming season after the performance against Barnstaple this weekend.
Dia the donkey who bears many similarities to Mike Phillips was located in a RSPCA center near Weston, and has all the necessary skills required to fit easily in the Wivey 3rds Squad.
Dubbed the "New Mike Phillips" he will fit in really well', said Rob. Although his tackling seems to be a bit weak at present, his place kicking is superb. Naturally he will look a bit odd on the field as he will face away from the ball at penalties and conversions, as he can only kick backwards but after our place kickers Saturday he can't do much worse.
