    Union only, no league players need apply [​IMG] . I realized I've never seen a Rugby thread out there, but plenty for other sports. I played for all four years in college (fullback and wing mostly), took 5 years off for some stupid reason and started playing again last spring. Being 30 pounds heavier than my old play weight (mostly good), I've since moved to center. Man, I forgot how fun this sport was. There's nothing like hitting a gap and suddenly finding yourself with nothing in front of you except for the try line.

    I played briefly, until I saw a guy get carried off the field one time, looking like a figure from a Dali painting. Call me a sissy, but I believe your nose belongs in the center of your face, not by your ear. Gruesome. [​IMG]

    I've only played a little Union. But through high school I played League as a 2nd Rower. Quite liked the game back then and had plenty of injuries (delt them out as well [​IMG], but i'm over sports these days and care very little for either game. I did have a lot of fun playing though and it did take a lot out of me.

    Played the last two years of Senior School (Newmarket Suffolk). Never wore a jock strap or a cup, don't ask me how I never got hurt. I guess I was just living right at the time! Most fun I have had in my entire life.

    Cheers.
