    Wasn't sure where to put this but as it's to do with sport I guess this section is as good as any. I'm off to Manchester Met on Saturday and am planning on playing Rugby. I've read a few things elsewhere that rugby initiations are pretty bad - are such stories exaggerated or is there some truth in them?

    I've played rugby since I was 7 and I want that to continue. I've captained my club, I've captained my school/college and I've represented my district and county at different age groups. With all respect, if someone tells me to drink a pint of piss or eat gherkin that's been up a props arse, I'm going to tell them to get lost and I'll go and play somewhere else.

    Don't get me wrong I enjoy a beer and a night out as much as anyone but I've played long enough now to know where my standards are and who I need to prove something to. I'd rather not travel across Manchester looking for a club if possible and do want to play at uni.

    So yeah, has anyone got any experience with such things? Thanks.

    Yeah some things are bad and some unis and clubs are worse than others, but it's about bonding. If you're not prepared to bond and to do some unpleasant but temporary things then you don't belong on the team. They won't trust you.

    Do or it and play or don't do it and don't play.
