    Dear all,

    I can't spot a rugby union society in the societies list and I'd like to start one.

    If you're one of the Front Row Union (like myself), the rest of the forwards, one of the Jessicas (aka backs) or just a fan, please post here so we can get our own Society going.

    Or, if there is already one - let me know where :P

    A Prop's Testimony to a Back. (I didn't write this, but it is somewhat stuff of Front Row Myth)


    "Son, in this world there are scrums. And in those scrums you need props. Are you willing to do it? As a prop, I have more responsibility than you can ever fathom.

    You use words like "drunk" and "out of shape"; those words are the very backbone of a life I spent drinking and partying in, and you use them as a punchline.

    You weep for your wings and centers, and curse the prop forward. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of knowing that the front row, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, wins these games you play. Truth? You can't handle the truth, because deep down in places you don't talk about in your selection meetings, you want me in that scrum; you need me in that scrum.

    I neither have the time nor inclination to explain myself to a back who scores on the very blanket of ball retention that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just bought me a beer and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you crawl into that scrum and get dirty. Either way, I don't give a damn who you think is responsible."

    I was thinking the same thing - if it's in Wales or the South-West then I could give you the lowdown on how good their team is, based on personal experience

    Well, I still do play at the moment, before I leave university. Hopefully I can join a local team near my home after that, so I don't have to stop playing. Flanker/lock

    I play 2,6,7 (and 9 sometimes). Currently not playing rugby, due to me not wanting to be injured while I'm supposed to be completing my training.

    Army. Training to be a TA officer.

    Scrumhalf was a rare thing. Preferred playing as openside, but often than not I was put as a hooker because of scrummaging ability (though lack of throwing ability to be honest). When I first got to university my team, due the lack of props, only put as a prop because I could scrummage. I found it very hard, especially against some of the bigger opposition props. I was a very lightweight Prop. Got injured pretty badly a year ago, so haven't really played, think I've lost the fitness required for a 9(or any position really) now, hence leaving off rugby until I'm commissioned. Hopefully will get playing for my unit eventually.
