That only gives your opposing prop a clearer target as to wear his fist should go.

As a wing, generally I wear a Red longsleeve Cantebury under armour shirt (the one to keep you warm) Umbro undershorts and a shock doctor gumshield. I've got a pair of Cantebury gloves, but haven't worn them for a while. Lent a pair of KooGa pads from the Backs coach at my team, but wasn;'t fussed on them, so didn't bother buying a pair for myself.
I wouldn't wear a cup, ever, probably because it'd be hard to run with one of them on.

Haha that reminds me of a piece of 'equipment' used by a couple of blokes on our school rugby league team.

We were up against our cross town rivals (the Catholic School)...a few of the boys playing in the forwards had shin pad shaped pieces of fibreglass about 50% thicker than shin pads. Anyway, the boys put it on their forearms and kept it there with what seemed like half a roll of strapping tape each (its quite common to have forearm taping here in Rugby League...mostly for injury reasons of course). They didn't tell the coach, but all the boys new.

About 5 minutes in to the game, our second rower Evan came over the top with a massive swinging arm in a 2 man tackle but he missed by ony a few mils and all the guys let out a kind of "ooooo" (because they knew what would have happened if it connected...) anyway, obviously the coach noticed this and he seemed a bit suspicious and low and behold he found out what was going on when just after half time and tensions were rising a guy was knocked out...the boys promptly came off...

...I can imagine your gear would cause a fair bit of friendly damage to the opposition!!!

speaking of which
I have said i worn a scrum cap, and we just had our first game of the season, and two practices after i feel like im 1 hit away from a concussion haha
I played flanker past game
got kicked in the head 3 times, high tackled 3 times (not 1 called), and at practice my own hooker headbutted me

so my question is where can I find a cheap good scrum cap?

I wear just the basics: shorts, jersey, socks, boots and mouthguards, although my doctor advised me to use a shoulder pad due a contusion I had there...
