Old Salts' new vibe
By CPOSTD Daniel Carter
SOME might have lost a bit of their
former pace and a bit of hair on top,
but to a spectator's eye there were
few signs that age was catching up
on those who took to the park for
the RANRU Navy Old Salts.
The Old Salts began their season
on a high in freezing conditions in the
annual IPAMM Cup charity match at
Canberra Stadium on May 14.
Played against the ACT Veterans
and resulting in the traditional nine-
all draw, the match was a curtain-
raiser for the Brumbies vs Lions Super
The charity game raised $1300 for
the George Gregan Foundation, which
supports hospital projects for children,
and $1300 for Legacy.
Chief of Navy VADM Russ Crane
presented the cheques, IPAMM Cup
and the man-of-the-match award to
ACT's John Hillier.
Former skills and agility returned
as the Old Salts banded together and
finished the first period of the game
with a two--one advantage.
Navy was forced to defend its line
for the first 10 minutes and conceded
the first points.
One of the youngest players,
CAPT Nick Stoker, helped set up WO
Dave Carter for Navy's first try.
Damien Hickman put his speed
to devastating effect for the ACT in
the second period. He dominated the
backline, created space and forced
Navy into errors, allowing his side to
score two quick tries.

This sparked an attack from CDRE
Dave Letts, who connected with his
son LCDR Michael Letts to set up
SBLT Rob Wardrobe with a try.
WO Carter followed with an out-
side back running try seconds before
the end of the period.
The Old Salts grew in confidence
and produced two more tries to finish
