    I feel like cr**. I was at rugby practice

    yesterday, when someone tackled me from behind, put their full force into my knee, and dislocated it! I can't walk without crutches, and I'm not allowed to play for a month while my knee heals. I feel trapped compared to normal.

    Best game I've ever played

    and I hope to continue playing when I'm out of high school! I play lock! The saying "a hooligans game played by gentlemen" sums up a large portion why I love the sport! We kill each other during the game and eat together after!

    I Play

    I started playing rugby when I was 42 years old. I'm sitting here right now typing with a heck of a black eye and bruises all over my body. As a woman, I hate the looks of pity I get around and about - people making sly glances at my injuries and (I think) assuming that I'm a...

    I have been playing contact rugby (sevens

    and fifteens) for five years, I am playing my first high school year this year and I am a utility player (I always have been since I know so much about the game) however this has led to me not knowing where I'm playing. Which sucks because I really wanted to play fly half or...

    Touch Rugby

    Okay, I don't exactly play proper rugby; I play touch rugby, which (and I quote Mr A.), "teaches us all the rules of rugby without the fear and danger." I don't know about fear though, some girls went into touch positively quaking... I don't know all of the rules quite...
