Touching Up

Amidst news of England’s foreign legion, Welsh squad shenanigans, RFU meltdowns and moustaches on steroids, I realise that what most of you are really after is news of the progress of the Wii Fat touch rugby team.

For those paying attention it will come as absolutely no surprise to learn that I am still basking in the glory of my one and only touch rugby try this ‘season’. Victory on that momentous day meant that we won our division with a 100% record and progressed to the Chesham Touch Rugby Premiership, where we currently have a 2 from 2 winning record, beating 2 teams of energetic teenagers in matches played at 100 mph.

So far, then, everything in the Wii Fat garden is coming up roses. No further tries from yours truly I'm afraid and, while I’d like to say that’s because I’m now a marked man, we all know that the reality is still that the absence of any real pace is the culprit (it's a familiar tale, as both regular readers will testify). Nevertheless, the odd half-break here and there has taken our opponents by surprise (not to mention my own team mates and, if the truth be known, myself) whilst improved fitness levels - courtesy of nearly 6 weeks personal training with Cassius at the gym - have meant that I’m now able to be involved for longer without requiring CPR.

Next up is my touch rugby alma mater, Chairman’s Choice – so for those of you who have bothered to read this far, watch this space!
