Jonny Wilkinson?
Wasn't he one of those characters on The Bill?
Cheers

We do indeed, Peter.
However, I haven't watched it in over 10 years.

I hesitate to tell you this. but the position I played was hooker...which did not mean receiving payment for certain services. It was my role to hook the ball back to my team members when in a scrum...I still have the lumps missing from my shin to prove it...I am exaggerating ..

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Hello all..!

Bit of an update. My eldest son is still enjoying the game. His high school team was defeated as they took part in the local championships (ranked about #8 now) but they are hopeful that they can do better next year.

And its been 2 months now since my youngest (age 10) joined the local elementary schoolers rugby league. Also about 1 month since my wife injured her back (ouch!) in rugby practice. The 4th grader mothers have to play against their sons in February.

Yes, even the wife played, though only one day. Even a shorter career then Ben!

All we need to do now is buy a bit of stock in Canterbury, given that they seem to be acquiring quite a bit of our money...

Actually, at least your sport is slightly interesting. Our American football is just a made for TV spectacle.
