It´s good fun being at the bottom of a ruck.Ask my son,his head is just right of the ball.

@grouser: It´s a good Job that the ref knows most of the Players and who they belong to :-)

I bet the bath after was a great sensation. Superb splattering of mud. Well caught too.

So the changing rooms of my day had showers that were a trickle of either icy cold water or red hot and you'd still be wiping mud and Vaseline off yourself hours later in the bar...has that been exported as well?):-

They're all in brown; how do they tell their team members apart?
Do your launderettes have showers too?

@Judy aka L@dybug: First you get the Players to shower in their kit then wring it out a bit,pile it all into plastic sacks and then off to the launderette :-)
