Warringah’s Blore says he’s getting his head around ins, outs of rugby

By MARK CASHMAN

There’s an old saying in rugby that you are only as good as your last game and on that account Warringah flyhalf Dean Blore could be pretty happy with how his journey in the 15-man game is going.

In bleak and windy conditions under lights at North Sydney Oval against Shute Shield heavyweights Northern Suburbs, Blore put on a clinic on how to manage a game of footy against pretty handy opposition.

The game was the Rats first outing after their big win the Battle of the Beaches derby against Manly the week before, made even more significant with their skipper Ben Marr gone for the season with a shoulder injury.

Armed with a good wet weather game plan, Blore kicked for wide open spaces when deep in the Rats’ half and also came up with some nice dabs with the Norths defence coming at them hard.
