Last Saturday, I watched with disbelief while Paisley RFC snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. The thing of it is, it's still hard to believe that it happened. Paisley absolutely hammered McLaren for most of the game. with a lead of 8-6 with a few minutes left, a McLaren player was so far offside that the Paisley fullback nearly fell over him. This guy recovered the ball, McLaren moved it out to the wing and that was it. Game over. Most galling of all is that the ref wasn't exactly unsighted.
Be that as it may. Ever Paisley player on the field gave and gave until there was nothing left to give. All of us are intensely proud of them. Now, have they accepted the league is now unattainable? Don't you believe it. While it's true that we're now dependent on other results, what we can control is out last two games, or rather how we approach them. The nature of this league is that it's almost inevitable that there are a couple of surprises left, so what we do is go all out to achieve two wins with bonus points and hope that Strathclyde's finest have something to say about what happens in the competition. Have I mentioned how fond of the Police I am? 'Moan the Polis!
