Thanks for sharing.
Pitch was actually very good! only a small part was dry. A lot less grazing than usual.

Those might even be the goal posts, since the field looks like a farm up in the Balkans somewhere . . .
Ha! Where do you think they get their "energy" from and Rowan, how dare you! The pitch was (almost) perfect, without a furrow or cowpat in sight!

I haven't played since a one-off cameo for my old club in London in 2015. I haven't trained since 2009. I will be 40 before this season is out and at least 10% of my 84kg or so is wasted (or just waist!).
The boots have been hung on a nail in my shed for a couple of years, so I hope they are still servicable.

My main concern is that my boy is now old enough (5) to understand the game a bit and he will probably be there. The illusion I have given him of my adequacy at rugby is at serious risk of being exposed.
If I make it to the end of the season, I think I might be able to technically claim greater longevity than Brad Thorn.
EDIT: It's just occurred to me that I have no idea where my boots are. Has anyone seen them? They're Canterbury, the proper colour (black), with proper screw-in sprigs.
