Right so after the four point weekend from the 6/7th March next up for the Phoenix was the double home weekend facing the Sheffield Scimitars and the Bracknell Bees. Saturday saw the Scimitars come to town, sadly The Angry Budgie could not attend. We had gone to the Manchester Academy to see Chimaira and Trivium. A separate review of that gig should appear some time this week!
Anyway from all accounts the Sheffield game was another corker, as games against the Scimitars usually are! In fact im more gutted about Mr Tony Hand MBE dropping the gloves! Yes you read that right, Tony had a fight! He wasn't the only one too! Andre Payette and Jaakko also get into some rough stuff!
More importantly the Phoenix got the win, as silly as it seemed less than a couple of weeks ago, and after results elsewhere in the league, 3rd place is now a possibility for the Phoenix!!
