The RoC is a thing of beauty.

No matter how you try and kill it... it just grows stronger.

Even with the tiniest population we still manage to make a dent everywhere.
Sure it's the FA Sunday Cup, but it's still the FA and it's still a Cup. It's been around since 1965, we didn't make it up, we just won it.

Unfortunately basketball is not a sport that allows surprises and in 99.9% of the matches the underdog loses. :(

If we manage to win at least one game, it will be a success (IMO). :wink:
