184. Shag’s Musical Diary

Occasional pages from the diary of Shag, Coach of the New Zealand Sumfony Orchestra, that have mysteriously found their way to Ned’s inbox.

Final stop on the Show You How It’s Done World tour is Cardiff.

I love and hate this town. Some good memories of coaching the Cymru Choir, but I still haven’t forgotten that miserable day in 2007 when bloody Wayne Barnes lost the rhythm and dropped the baton. Wonder if he’s figured out who sends him those Christmas cards every year. Perhaps I shouldn’t be signing them “Lord Ted“.

Every time I think of that day, I have to inhale a Maketu Curried Mince and drain a firkin of Double Dragon. Burp-o-rama ding dong. Fossie’s getting a bit peeved with the aroma, but better out than in I say.

The local band reckon they’re a chance to give their best rendition since 1953, but they say that every time. I’m backing SonnyBoyBilly to show them a thing or two about the slide trombone, oomphah, and Young Richie to give a master class in looking innocent.

Yours in leeks


About Ned Davy

By hokey, the big fella’s tipped into his 50s. A rangy loose forward in his prime, good with the ball in hand, but rarely up with the play any more.

    Despite coming from a long line of Welsh bachelors, I wonder if Huw Bris is on the starting 15 for NZ?
    In faint hope, not expectation….I fear there aren’t enough Joneses in the Welsh team.

    • Ned Davy says:

      Remarkable how that old bastard Huw Bris gets a run every few years. However, I’m picking that Richie HUGH McCaw will be the one who turns up this weekend.

Go on. Have your say.
