The fourth-grade battlers down at the Betoota Mutts have been warned on the club’s Facebook group today to get down to training next week or face the consequences.

With ‘strong numbers’ showing up to training last night according to the club captain, this season bills to be a ‘belter.’

However, as is the norm, third and fourth grade’s numbers were a little bit shorter than the ‘top squad.’

As a result, the drinking enthusiasts and social characters that make up the lower grades have been warned that unless they start showing up for training, 52-year-old fourth-grade coach ‘Beef’ will be playing fullback in their upcoming trial against the Bedourie Bulldogs.

Bill ‘Beef’ Watson the 332 game veteran made the announcement in a separate post outlining the potential fourth grade line up for next weekend, and spoke to our reporters this morning.

“We haven’t had the numbers for fourth grade so far, so I might be lacing up the boots again,” said the plumber from Betoota Heights whose love of his home life is directly correlated to his love for the Dolphins.

“I’ve obviously lost a step or two in recent years, but you don’t lose the vision.”

“That’s what I can bring to the team,” said the coach now getting visibly worked up.

One member of the forward pack spoke to our reporter when they bumped into each other down at Dave’s Bakery this morning.

“I don’t get it,” he said.

“You play fourth-grade because it’s effectively social footy. Not because you want to get down and do suicides in the 35 degree heat on a Tuesday arvo because some fuckwit club captain has decided to trot out the whole ‘one club one dream’ bullshit.”

“Anyway, I guess we have to show up next Thursday to keep Beef from tearing his hamstring clean off the bone.”
