Recently I have started to watch rugby on the telly and a friend of ours who loves the sport invited us to a match. I love new experiences so I jumped at the chance. He was kind enough to answer my questions and he didn’t treat me like an idiot (even though I’m sure I asked some silly questions since I am clueless about the sport). We watched the London Scottish play Plymouth Albion. The home team, the Scottish were not victorious, which was unfortunate since our friend is a huge fan. The season is over, but I have a feeling I might catch a few more games next year. I doubt I will ever actually play rugby, but I admire those who do.
This guy greeted the players as they prepared for the match.
During the match I marveled over the strength and determination of the players.
If you want to play, remember that injuries can happen. Two players are receiving treatment in this photo. And there were others.
After the match many of the players needed some rest.
It was a fun afternoon and I really appreciate our friend for inviting us and for helping me learn the ins and outs of the game. I know it will take some time, but I have a firmer grasp on it. All in good time.
