Gaelic footbal is good for fitness and kicking and teaches you not to take the bait when a guy catches you with a cheap shot[/b]
More like it teaches you to wait for the ref to turn his back or one in all in. I miss Gaelic Football, may go back during the summer and play a bit of intermediate.
I'm guessing you are with a big club with an attitude like that! I know guys who have been training since January so they can make it to intermediate! I too miss a bit of Gaelic Football, I'm only playing soccer at the moment actually due to my damn neck, have to start playing Rugby and Football again.
I found Basketball a very good compliment to rugby and all sports, good for fitness, but the real bonus is the way it teaches you to read and intercept passes.
