We didn't notice the ball land at the side of us and the next minute I was completely flattened by about 6 giants. Luckily I was not hurt and after the game I was given lots of lemonade and crisps and even some money.

My Dad played from being a young lad until he was nearly 40. He is now 57 and he has trouble with every moveable joint in his body, he can't even bend down to tie his laces and he puts it down to playing rugby for too long.

I saw my Dad and brother get injured and always said that if I had a son I would not encourage him to play rugby. I married a huge soccer fan and so my 14 year old son plays soccer and has never really shown an interest in rugby. He loves watching American football but being 6' tall (and still growing) and as thin as a rake I'd rather he stuck to soccer.

We all got up at some unearthly hour to watch the Rugby World Cup a couple of years ago.

I adore the game, I regret not playing it when i was younger but I'd be mad to start at 38!

I was at a Worcester match 3 weeks ago and some of those boys are seriously huge!
