Played as prop or lock - equivalent of, um, offensive lineman I suppose - when I was at school. And the rules are much simpler than that.

If you have the ball, run forwards.
If you do not have the ball, but the man with the ball is on your side, run behind and to one side of him.
If you do not have the ball, but the man with the ball is not on your side, hit him.
Unless, and this is important, the man with the ball is the referee. Don't hit him unless he's a history teacher.
Anything is possible in an infinite universe. Even survival. Strange but true.

Used to be a winger, until football took over. I'm pretty fast  :)

Played yesterday, first time in about 2 years we won 10-8 with a try in the last play!
Our team practiced 15 before, the team we played against play a league

Wing, pretty damn fast one as well. Worst injury was a concussion from being taken into touch, then dropped on my neck.

Always been a 15. Love being under the high ball. Last game I played was in a township in South Africa for charity...least charitable game I have ever seen in my life.

Also as an Irishman, it is a fantastic time to be a rugby fan.

Prop. My team ( CUrrie) went on tour to a tourney in Luxembourg for each of the national champions and we came 2nd (and 3rd lol we had 2 teams). Czech Rep came first.. but only because of 300 ft 15 yearold called Pedro lol.
Still... best in scotland

Incredible emotion, also as a leinster fan had similar nerves this weekend. Semi finals here we come...I reckon we might just get hockeyed by Munster. But either way there will be an Irish team in the finals!!

So at the moment we could make up an eUK rugby team made up of 17 wingers, 2 inside centres, 1 prop & 1 scrum-half  ...

Yep, me another winger too. An old one, mind, but still fast(-ish), & currently out for last 12 wks with a nasty knee injury sustained in a match  ---  aagghhh !!!   :cry:
