|Robbie longs to play football.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story I saw nothing wrong,” growled Ally. “Now are you sending on another substitute or playing with ten men?” “I have no more substitutes,” moaned Baldor, ignoring Robbie as he jumped up and down on the spot trying to attract his attention. “I can play! Please pick me,” begged Robbie. Baldor stooped down and faced the tiny raptor. “You? You're not even a Tyrannosaurus Rex.” “I am too. Listen to my growl.” The crowd erupted in laughter as Robbie squeaked. “Okay,” sighed Baldor. “What have I got to lose? Play up front with Chuddy.” The mammoths laughed loudly as the tiny substitute sprinted onto the pitch. Within minutes Robbie received the ball. He dribbled between the legs of the mammoths who were too slow to stop him. Robbie skipped past the last line of defence and faced the goalkeeper. He scampered through his legs and kicked the ball into the empty net. The crowd cheered loudly for their new hero and the half time whistle went. “You were lucky little one,” said Brutus who nursed his injured leg. “Yes,” echoed Tordor. “Those mammoths will pound you into the dust.” The second half kicked off and Tusky followed Robbie all over the pitch, attempting to injure him, but the raptor was too nippy. He again received the ball and once more set off on a dribble, expertly manoeuvring between the legs of his clumsy opponents. The goalkeeper growled and galloped towards Robbie, who dribbled around the angry mammoth and tapped the ball into the empty net. The crowd screamed their approval as the mammoths argued between themselves. On the bench Brutus and Tordor were speechless, unable to believe what they were witnessing. The final minute approached and the score stood at 2-2. The Tyrannosaurus Rex team won a corner and Robbie ran into the penalty box. The ball soared high above his head, but he ran up the tail of Chuddy until he was on his shoulder. He catapulted himself through the air and headed the ball goal bound. The ball hit the back of the net and Robbie screamed to the goalkeeper, “pick that one out hairy!” . Ally blew the whistle for full time and the animals ran onto the pitch, screaming Robbie's name. He was carried around the stadium, a new hero of the dinosaurs. Never again did anyone tell him he was not a Tyrannosaurus rex.! Tweet
