Today I’m thankful for rugby.
I played rugby union at university. I can be described as “stubby” so the pack was really the only place for me. I can take a hit but I will never be a sprinter. Previously I’d swum for a number of years. Looking at the bottom of a pool grew tedious. I try to stay active and rugby sounded like fun. It was very different than any other sport I’d tried. I had a ball (pun intended) and met many lovely people. I have great stories and learned a few very, very rude songs. My dodgy shoulder is dodgy because of an actual old rugby injury.
