I couldn't find a thread simular to this topic, so i decided to start one. I love talking about my past rugby matches and i'm sure there are people on this forum who like to as well. I'll break the ice and start with one of mine form my short lived high school rugby... One of my most memorable rugby matches was played this year when my school (about 300 people) team faced a school that is roughly 4 times bigger (about 1200 people) than my school. With my school being as small as it is we only had 15 players for that match, then a few days before the match our ONLY fullback got injured. With my Afrikaans coach being as stubborn as he is , he still insisted that we play this match. So we travelled to this school and ran onto the field with 14 players. We won the toss and elected to kick-off, on the first play of the match they ran in a try with not even 1 minute on the clock. While we waited for kicker to convert the try our captain gave the team an uplifting speech, with our self confidence restored we kicked off to them again and played the game of the year. We managed to get a try with a 30 meter rolling maul then spread the ball wide in the backline (no conversion) before half time and kicked over a penalty during the second half, so the score was 8-7. With it being a typical summer day in Zululand (about 35 degrees Celsius and 80% humidity), no bench players and a very hard, physically match, we were all finished. With a few minutes remaining and them 10 meters from the try line, I conceded a penalty with a bone crunching tackle a bit on the dirting side . But lucky for me our defence was unbreakable that day and we beat that school for the first time ever with 14 players. Final score: 8-7 I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed typing it . I hope this thread gets going cause it is really nice to revisit those moments, so please share your stories. P.S. This is not only limited to Union.
