Fair Play 6 (Melbourne)

Blessed with another beautiful sunny day, Fair Play 6 was a huge success and saw the West Africa Combined team lose on penalties in the final to the Mixed Robinsons.

The beer and the music flowed and the soccer became more and more serious as the day progressed.

Lucky again with the weather - a sunny and hot day, only a week after storms and hail had reeked havoc across most of Melbourne.
