The round 6 edition of the Coodabeens chewed up a bit of airtime discussing the merits of the SA West Coast metropolis of Kimba, home of 250-gamer Corey Enright.
My late father-in-law was Postmaster at Kimba in the 60s and my wife spent her early years there. There is also a town called Pimba in SA, hence my Gunstonesque tribute below, which somehow morphed into a verse about some WA players’ given names.
One of the trickiest things about the ditty caper was song selection. I went with an all-time Split Enz favourite, but alas, it was deemed too 80’s for the ABC demographic. Upon closer inspection, it also predicted the demise of four coaches.
So, no songs this week, but I did get a mention from the team about my revelation that “… the first concert I ever saw was Split Enz at Festival Theatre in May 1975 (they opened for Ayers Rock but we left early to get the 490 bus back to Elizabeth)…” which raised a chuckle.

No more pout – instead a gri-in
Sometimes you shout – but what’s the problem ?
Look at those steely eyes, he thinks that they’re not tryin’
Thrown everything – you could imagine
Assistant coach – is ducking Coke cans

Look at those bleary eyes, he’s on the verge of cryin’
Another rout – now face the media
I don’t know what Scott Watters is doing
When the Giants are for their first win still trying …
