the leader of the ram. He raised his knee. " Left Right, leftright," the five heaviest members of Raven's rolled into the defending bully. The battle swayed and oozed in the goal-mouth. The mud turned to slime and boot studs slipped and skidded across the mire. Featherstone wedged one boot against the goal-post and heaved with his back. The umpire squatted low and peered between the struggling legs. The ball had vanished. The cheering died down. Peter laughed. The middle of the bully had collapsed and lay crushed on each other with the ball somewhere beneath them. The umpire stood up and blew his whistle. " Reform," he called.
