If you survived to the end of Up The Creek Without a Mullet, you might recall mention (on p206) of the Adelaide-based amateur touch rugby team The Mullets, whose member Natalie wrote to me when my 2005 trip to hunt Australian mullets made a few headlines. She told me about some of the fun quirks of the team including their annual award of The Golden Mullet.
Natalie emailed the other day to report that, sadly, The Mullets are no more, but she was excited to read that the team had been enshrined in history (or at least, mentioned in my book).
Sadly I’ll never be able to fulfil my invitation to go and see them play.
I wonder if this was how people felt when Third Lanark hit the dust?
