Attack of the "Killer Bs"

Given my lack of rugby action at the moment I'm having to get my fix vicariously through the efforts of fellow 40-something rugby blogger Nursedude from Minneapolis who played his second game in successive weeks at the weekend (an impressive feat in itself!)

Not only that, this time he played a full 80 minutes at prop for the Metropolis B team ("The Killer B's") and once again finished on the winning team (I'm turning green with envy as I write this). For Nursedude's full account of the game please click here.

Hi Flanker, thanks for the shout-out. That's high praise considering that two English(London Irish and Saracens) teams made it to the semi- finals of the Heineken Cup and English clubs rocked in the ECC with Worcester, Sale, Bath and Newcastle waving the flag for English club rugby. With all of that good news for English rugby fans, to get an entry is humbling and a little embarassing. Have a good Monday!

Mate, the humble grassroots of the game is just as important to me as the showcase stuff and it's great to highlight what fellow veterans are up to. Furthermore, I first featured your blog last July after I stumbled across the story of how you took up rugby on Blondi's blog (see and I'll embarrass you further by admitting that I found your story quite inspirational and it certainly put into perspective my indecision at that time about whether to commit to playing again. Basically you're one of the reasons why I'm back out there suffering the pain! :)
