I love rugby, rugby union that is, a team game played with tremendous determination by men who control their aggression.
For me the key attributes of rugby are a sense of fair play, teamwork and respect for the opposition (and referee).
Today 8 Feb 2009, sees Wales’ first match in the annual 6 Nations Championship against a re-emerging Scotland. It will be tough match, but one that both sides are capable of winning. I’m only sad that I’m not there to enjoy the other benefit of Rugby: the socialising.
For anyone who has not experinced it, the way that the supporters of rugby teams can integrate, socialise and have a load of fun before, during and after a match has always provided me with great pleasure.
90 mins or so ’till kick off, so it’s now time for some lunch. More after – especially if Wales win.
