Back in touch (again)
Well, maybe not quite. More like damp, chilly evenings and yours truly huffing and puffing his way through a first touch rugby session of the so-called summer.
Last night was the first practice session (we’ve a couple more before the ‘season’ kicks in) and the turn out, considering the weather conditions, was nothing short of phenomenal - which bodes well for the season but which might present the organisers with a logistical headache. Anyway, last night a few old lags mixed in with some touch rookies and it worked out pretty well. Nothing too taxing but enough to get the old heart and lungs working again as I emerge from my winter hibernation.
It very much looks like the bulk of last year’s team will be back in the saddle. This year the team name has a working title of ‘The Bridesmaids’ on the basis that we’ve finished runners-up the last 2 years (always the bridesmaid, never the bride). No, I didn’t get it first time either.
Watch this space…
