So Passle, what do I know? I know as a rugby coach that the world would be a better place if everyone played rugby or at least was a member of a rugby club. Yes, we would inevitably stretch our already stretched A&E, but if everyone lived a life guided by core values of respect, discipline, sportsmanship, teamwork and enjoyment - we would live in a happier world.
This article (quoted below) and the videos within made me smile and feel lucky to be part of the rugby family, however, nothing makes me prouder than my community rugby club.
The video attached is from Camp Hill RFC Mini Rugby Festival 2017. Watch it and tell me I am not right.
The internet for a rugby fan is an arena largely for debate, discussion, and sometimes just pure aggressive rants. But no matter how different or antagonising fans are to one another, we know at the end of the day that we are a world in union. Much of the values at rugby’s core (camaraderie between opposition teams and fans, respect for referees, the unforgettable bonds you forge in teams to name a few) make you stand up, clutch the badge of your favourite rugby jersey, and be proud to be in the sport.
