I'm a recent convert to rugby, and wanted to say hello! I'm a teacher in Michigan, and had an assistant student teacher last September who was a rugby addict. By the time he was done working with me, I too had become an addict, and love the sport!
Unfortunately, it's difficult to find rugby programming in our area, but I watch it when I can. Love everything about the sport. My son has asked me if he can try it out; I told him yes as soon as we can find a club in our area!
Anyway, I look forward to learning more about rugby from all of you, and hope to see it catch on a bit more in the U.S.!
