    I don't blame the young guys that left Leeds, Care, Biggs, Doherty, Crane etc. Playing in a semi-pro league doesn't do much for your international aspirations.

    Bah! They should have worked hard to get back up! Rugby is supposed to be gentlemanly.

    hey people, sorry havent been on here in a while...a bit tied up with cswk (which will hopefully help me get to uni and get to playing ruggers...yawoo)

    cant actually wait to start playing - i throw a ruggers ball around in the park avec mon dad but living in london (central central) doesnt exactly offer any opportunities for female rugby

    i do feel very sorry for the leeds tykes...but my im relieved that jonny wilko managed to play 70 mins - kick lots AND not die...*phew*

    u come from west Yorkshire Ethereal, why is it rugby is more popular in the west than east. I was shocked when my parents sent me to school in the west to see the difference

    To be honest, I'm not sure why it's more popular. I suppose there is a higher population density over there so more people to like it.

    I didn't know you'd been to school over there. Small world!! What school?

    hey i'm a massive rugby fan - plan to take it up at uni as don't play it as yet!

    But i do (well did - now season has ended and going to uni next year i can't anymore) help coach and ref the 9 year olds at my local club. So much fun - even if we did lose more games than we won. for some reason our boys couldn't quite grasp the idea of a defence line that was straight so it had no gaps - every other club seemed to be able to do it tho!

    It pained me to watch. I'd give anything to play again, and there they were no apparent interest in the game at all!

    yeh lets hope the new coaches can do something to the england team - it becomes too painful to watch. and its getting harder to justify why they are playing so badly to my economics teacher whos from New Zealand!

    shame u can't play anymore - do u coach or anything now?

    No, when you retire from the game at 18 it's hard to have any contact. I might referee in a few years.

    Also, my club didn't seem to care. They haven't even rung to see how I am and it will be 7 years in oct since I retired. I thought rugby took better care of its own than that - how wrong was I?!
