Musings - Rugby...

This Sunday morning we are sat in our pyjamas watching the Rugby World Cup, England are playing Georgia, White versus Red, both teams bizarrely with a cross of Saint George on their flag. In our house rugby is the national game, football blah blah blah.


Rugby is a thugs game played by gentlemen, I always love that saying. It is a game not about hair styles, torrid affairs, what the wives are wearing or about how the latest manager is trying to get out of their contract because basically they have been crap.

It is about skill, team work and appreciating that your opposing team is as excellent as you are.

The next World Cup will take place on home soil, four years from now. That gives us enough time to save for tickets and enough time for Katharine to be old enough to come along with us and enjoy the game.

What do you consider your national game?

  1. I'm not sure if baseball is still the "national" game here in the States, or if it has been taken over by our version of football. Rugby seems to be the last of the truly "manly" sports - rough and tumble, no helmets, no prima donna quarterbacks!
