On-field rivalry at work

THERE aren't too many occasions where you can hit the boss and not get fired.

But this weekend, work will be forgotten as Elders sales professional Ryan Creed goes up against principal Dave Dart in the Men's hockey A-grade final.

Threats of laxative-laced coffee and not-so-performance-enhancing cakes have floated through the office this week, leaving both players on edge about the potential for sabotage.

"(Dave) said he has been feeling a bit sick this week and been calling me into the office a fair bit so he might be trying to infect me," Mr Creed said.

"Might have my wife bake him a special cake before the game."

Mr Dart said while he was tempted to spike his employee's coffee with something to glue him to the toilet seat come game day, he hadn't gone quite that far.

"When we beat them in the major semi-final, I stuck the headline from the paper on his desk for him when he came into work," Mr Dart said.

Whoever wins on the field tonight will have ultimate bragging rights, until next year.
