    Just wondering how many of you all turn out for a game on a Saturday?
    If you do then who do you play for and who have you got tommorow?
    I play for a little village side called St Day in Rugbys spiritual home, Cornwall.
    We travel up to Callington tommorow in Cornwall 2 league. We are about 7/8 years of promotion away from the top flight :D

    Although I'm not playing club this year, (because i can't afford the time on thuesday and thursday night because its my last eyar of school and i need to study), tomorrow I'm playing Colts and 1st Grade in trial matches against cross-town rivals, as there are each missing 3 or 4 players. Lookin forward to it.

    I'm playing school football like CHS and All Schools rep and just plain skool footy which will be fun though :D!
     
  4. I would be playing Uni 3rds and Berkshire U20s this season if it weren't for injury.

    However, it has left me with more time to travel and watch rugby, either live or in the pub. Spent 8 hours in my pub of choice last weekend for what can definately be dubbed 'Super Saturday' and next weekend I'm heading west to Bath as part of Northampton travelling army/rabble.

  6. Mate, i tell you one thing.. Rugby is brilliant and all, but I made a stupid mistake at my last year of school, I had rugby practice 5 times a week (2 days club, 2 days school, 1 day touch club) and have at least 1 game every weekend... My parents were concerned bout my studies.. I didnt.. and although it earns me an international spot and other benefits ;) it does not help me in getting good grades.. and now I regret this... I am now at uni, however I could have gone to a better one if I did well on my last year of school! I now play for my uni, club and still playing touch.. :p so it's the same thing all over again! heheheh... but i am doing well in uni though! :cheers:

    I used to play, body cant physically handle it now... my leg is crooked... So I am more of a watcher than player nowadays... Hopefully one day I may play a bit more but we shall see, need to seriously get healthy tho...

    I will be travelling up to Bath on Saturday to see them take on and hopefully beat Northampton...

    I have also booked my ticket for one of the World Cup Warmups at Twickenham...

    barring a few yanks on this forum - i feel like i'm the only non-ex-pat in America that's a serious fan and actually follows a specific team and league - everyone i know is either a casual watcher or views RU and RL in a general sense - i used to play but then my club fell apart after the fall 2004 season - ever since then everything has gone downhill with rugby for me, knee injury, rugby on tv was axed the following year, plus now there isn't even a new videogame!!!! It's hard to be either a fan or player for me - but I have no choice, I'm a rugby addict.

    Yeah..it's weird...even people who play rugby here have very little clue on what's actually going on in the rugby world. Odd.
    I'm more diehard fan than anything, but in my wee bit o' spare time I turn out for the St. Louis Bombers. We have a Super League team, but, sadly, that's way above my standard of play.
    American Football got the best of me...but who knows...with modern technology, I may come back bigger and leaner in my 30's...oh, God...I'm going to be 30 in a year and a half. I need to find alcohol right now.

    you've got years left in you o'rothlain it's all about attitude - i played with a scrumhalf who was 42/43 a couple of seasons ago - bugger was fit as a whistle and hard as nails

    I think that's just about gone now...fitness levels are very, very down now I no longer play footy regularly and I have a perma-sore knee and foot.

    Rugby in the park is about my level now.

  19. Man... then what do you think my country's rugby heritage is? and where did I learn how to play rugby? Dubai! hahahha! come on, that's not an excuse!!! My country of origin LITERALLY has no rugby heritage whatsoever.. :p
     
  20. Yeah but growing up in Liverpool there is just no room for anything other than footy, footy and more footy.

    You should add a quick biog of your own root to being an international rugger bugger onto my thread from the other week :

    Well, I used to play for a small rugby team back here in Holland (RC Nieuwegein, for the ones who know or been here). But due to a shoulder what got dislocated multiple times in a row, I'm not playing any more. First I need to get my surgery and then I'll see ;)
