Time Out for Rugby

Back home today.  It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon at George Washington Middle School in Alexandria for the annual ”Old Boys” rugby tournament.

My usual team (NOVA Old Boys) was not entered so I picked up a game with “The Wild Geese,” a motley squad of ruggers from western Fairfax, Loudoun and Maryland. 

We played two games.  I played in the second against the Alexandria Roosters, who have a number of foreign players, mostly French, and some young, fast backs.  (“Young” is under 40 and “fast” is able to run fifty yards without stopping).  They beat us 25-0.

I made a couple tackles with my face, thereby earning a nice cut over the left eye.  They didn’t stop the fight. 

Felt great to be on the field.  Now watching the Skins in overtime. 

Gano from 48 … Victory!
