    Concerns over increased attendance at tah game.

    Dear Agony Aunt,

    In April I'm going to Brisbane to watch the Force wup the Reds arses with a bunch of fellow Force supporters, which will be great but the following day I travel to Sydney where I am supposed to go watch the powder puff Tahs try to play a game of rugby. With such a large group going to a tahs game (there will be 6 of us) do you think I should phone ahead to ensure that they are prepared to cater for the dramatic increase in attendance? In addition, should we sit apart so as not to intimidate the tah players and supporters?

    Dear EnForcer,
    I can completely understand your concerns re the catering for your attendance at the 'Tahs game. but i think calling to announce your attendance will only serve to heighten the team's performance anxiety. By calling you are suggesting to them that they are incapable of catering for such a large crowd, they are liely to take offence to this premise, no matter how true it is.

    Your safest course of action is to turn up in much the way that the 'Tahs loyal supporters do, this will make your presence less intibidating. If you are unsure exactly how the fan base of the Waratahs normally behave, I can give you his details, he will be delighted to finally have some company.

    I would recommend making arrangements to cater for your own needs at the ground as your attendance will grossly stress the facilities, I'd suggest the purchase of a 'Beer Belly' or similar device, and possibly a bucket or tin can if your bladder isn't going to last until the game finishes (Don't worry too much though, 'Tahs games are usually pretty much over about 35 seconds after kickoff) Eat before the game, and take some money for a kebab after the game if eating and drinking are things you enjoy.

    The strongest advice I can leave you is not to look directly into the eyes of the Waratahs players. They will completely turn to water under a scrutinising gaze, this is the reason they have paid every journalist on the east coast to pump sunshine up their ass in toxic quantities whilst dragging up every fictional muckraking story about any other rugby franchise in the country.

    In short EnForcer, treat this like any other game you would attend....except for one or two things that you (as a Western Force fan would normally experience)
    1. A game of Rugby being played by two teams
    2. Ample catering
    3. Queues at the entry turnstiles
    4. Somebody to sing the national anthem with you
    5. A good time


    Thanks for your time EnForcer, Jess will be back on Agony Aunt duty soon!

    Classic - both of you!

    Another thing to note - as you make your way around town, you may not actually see anyone wearing the powder puff blue, and you may wonder whether you've got the wrong day, and there's no match on. Don't panic - this is quite normal!

    Likewise, be prepared for locals to stare and point, as they may be confused as to the identity of this large group of 6 people all wearing matching jerseys in a proper shade of blue.

    A '70's band by the name of Steppenwolf had a great LP and song called "snow blind friend". All about a guy whose vision of life was tainted by the drugs he'd taken.

    We could always rework the songs words to "Colour blind friend". For 'tahs supporters.

    (give me just a little more time, and my ........... is sure to grow)

    Is that more or less gas than Growden after eating a dozen dodgy meat pies?

    You keep asking the eternal questions don't you Jedi?

    How long is a ball of string? How many Angels can you fit on the head of a pin?
