    outside centre, great position. how do you find union coming from a league background?

    i went the other day, brought up with union, found league at uni.
    Its not too bad actually. Took me a while to learn the rules but I actually picked it up quite fast.

    How did you find union to league?

    Right, just this second got in from training! Tiring stuff tonight, massive increase in intensity from last night. Did a bit of work on tackling technique which has helped me alot.

    Also did a bit of kicking, which i havent done since my injury. Pretty impressed with my distance, the cycling must have paid off!

    Ready for bed now though, trip to Loughborough with college tomorrow which should be great

    League needs a lot more fitness! But a tad less thinking. League is a lot more brutal!

    I'm an outside centre, I'll leave the rough stuff to you for the most part and I'll get on with the sexy stuff.

    Plus, you can't use your feet anymore, legally anyway...

    You mean you'll do a fancy little sidestep whilst we mentally and physically kill ourselves securing every ball at the break down.

    I use my feet loads. I have been suspended twice for stamping and fined for punching in rucks.

    In all fairness though, I have never actually played league other than in warm up or to practice attacking plays (cutting angles etc.) So I can't really compare

    Finally in from the trip to Loughborough, the Power Base looked amazing! Just a shame they dont do Physiotherapy!

    Also tried out Rock-it Ball, great game but Im not all that good at aiming In case you havent heard of it ----> -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11JpgKa-abI&feature=related

    The plan was to do another 9 mile bike ride today but seems a bit late so will count it as a rest day and make up for it tomorrow

    Why are you using it as a bragging point then? Obviously a ******** who doesn't play a very high level to spout such crap.

    You are allowed to use your feet on the ball!!! if you spent more time after the ball and less about worrying about being macho you would do better.

    Match Day today, nice little win!
    Definite bit of cheating by the ref they supplied too, he let the game go on for 90 minutes, we're only supposed to play 30mins each way! But we held out so its not too bad.

    Bit battered and bruised but it was a massive game so worth it for the win. Bath then college work now

    Had a bad day diet wise today. Pub quiz didnt really help by offering free biscuits.

    Training's cancelled tomorrow so going to get a few miles done on the bike and possibly a bodyweight circuit to make up for it
