The ITT

Time goes by fast
Pedal harder
Pull what's amassed
in my larder
Down in a tuck
showing some pluck
to trial with style

Contest Winner

To make his mark
he had to fly
and to add sparks
he kneed a guy
(who had misread)
upside his head
His ball the call

For those who don’t follow Australian Rules Football, a mark is when a player catches a ball after it has been kicked. A contested mark is when multiple players try to catch it at the same time. Contested marks can get very interesting when you have players flying in at speed and with rather high leaps! 😁
