Beaches, Pies and Peas

DAY 16 – After last night’s events at the Eastern Creek Karting Centre, today started with an early morning presentation to the worst driver.

It was a close call with Callum Hazzard steadily crawling around the track… but the winner was Kevin Brown, who managed to complete only seven laps in comparison to everyone else who did at least 17.

His reward was to wear a little pink tutu for the day.

Next up was a trip to one of our favourite spots, Manly Beach, as the lads got some time relaxing.

Sunbathing, surfing, bodyboarding and swimming in the waves as the hot sun was shining was the order of the day.

It was again time for another first in the history of the tours, as Jordan ‘the wrecking ball’ Olmez managed to snap his surfboard clean in half!

A visit to the famous Harry’s Cafe De Wheels followed – and a tiger pie for lunch. A combination of pie, mash, mushy peas and gravy – a delicacy enjoyed by people all around the world, especially Chris Follin who could have done with a nosebag.

Then it was back to Panthers for training.

Tommy Martyn looked at different options and techniques with the kickers, Neil Kilshaw worked on running lines and handling with the backs and Ian Talbot went through some positional specific drills with the forwards.

The team then came together, under the guidance of head coach Derek Traynor, to go through roles and responsibilities in team defence.

After tea in the Panthers Leagues Club it was back to the accommodation for a quiz, with quizmaster Eric Frodsham.

Eric has spent lots of time and effort researching his questions but you would never have guessed!

It was entertaining to say the least and who would have known that Australia hold the world record for having the largest Christmas cracker!
