May 8: Brooklyn 1 - RSL 3

After four consecutive washouts and depleted by the pre-season desertion (no it's not too strong a word) of most of the so-called new guard, The Gut opened its 2022 campaign on its hallowed turf. Dangar Stu made a welcome return to the fold, having spent the 2021 season deafening himself sailing on old tub up the east coast. The ranks were further bolstered by Berowra stalwart Gary Hayes finally seeing the error of his ways and bringing his son one-time Brooklyn all-ager Aidan with him. Brooklyn went a couple behind early but eventually got into stride. The forwards and halves displayed great energy and skill in their lead up work but then the ensuing shot on goal inevitably hit the framework or missed the target by a nanometer. Brooklyn's only goal came from an RSL deflection. Perhaps the underwhelming result was all part of a strategy to lull other premiership contenders into not taking The Gut seriously enough, their complacency to be punished in upcoming games? A cunning plan in a foreshortened season...
