Rugby for Rugby

I have spent the entire day at a junior Rugby tournament in Nuneaton. My son, Tom, plays for Rugby Lions under 15 Rugby team and they reached the semi final, loosing by just one try. It was great to see literally hundreds of lads getting stuck in and channelling the aggression that comes naturally to boys at that age in the right way. Also from my own experience as a player more years ago than I care to remember, there is noting quite like the feeing of “pulling together” in a team sport and doing your best, not just for yourself but also for your mates. The Rugby LionsU15s clearly have that bonding which is a tribute to them and their coaches. Today they did the game, their club and the town proud.
