You know you're ready for Veterans Rugby when...

Your conversations with the guys at the rugby club mostly start with "...in my day...";

Your team mates congratulate you when you make it through the warm up;

Everything hurts and what doesn't hurt, doesn't work;

It takes longer to recover than it did to get tired;

You spend more on strapping in a season than you do on beer;

You find yourself popping ibruprofen pills before kick off;

Your idea of weight lifting is standing up;

You wonder how you could be over the hill when you don't even remember reaching the top.
