 Post subject: Rugby - the cons please
PostPosted: Tue Nov 24, 2009 12:43 pm 
Oversized DS2 has been told he is going to be a Prop in the A team (it's not tag Rugby) and I am really concerned that we are going to have lots of injuries. Ok, so he'll probably do more damage but I've been having sleepless nights about someone accidently stomping on his head and giving him brain damage. Please help me get over my irrational, or not so irrational :shock: fears!

Oh no DS1 (the weed) says a minimum of three people brake their arm each season!!! :cry:

EDIT: I'm so nevous I can't even spell break! :shock:

It's true - there are many injuries - in the past 6 weeks there have been 2 broken legs in DS's team.......but DS LOVES the game. I cannot go and watch him play DH has to as I can't bear watching him been mown down and indeed the only time I did go and watch him in a match he was stamped on and then proceeded to come over to me and give me one of his teeth!!! and carried on playing. I think your DS should give it a go (but don't watch him) and see for himself if it is a sport he thinks he would like. My DS just loves the cameraderie and teamsmanship.

Which I'm sure you could also get from a nice safe sport like table tennis :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously, it is worrying, but you just have to let them play (make sure you have suitable insurance cover though :cry: )

Bits to make Tipsy feel better:

When ds gets older and plays his games with you can join him in the pub afterwards.

You may also like to admire any passing bulging biceps on the field :shock:

DS1 started playing rugby at the beginning of year 7 as his games master seems to think he has natural flair. He plays No.8 - I have no idea what that means, but after the first session he asked for a scrum helmet thingy so I guess he gets squashed a bit! As far as I know he hasn't actually had his head stamped on - just caught by boots during rucks(?).

Three weeks into term he broke his arm at training when a bigger boy charged at the tackle bag that DS was holding! Two weeks after having the plaster removed he was back playing.

He regularly comes home with s tud marks on his arms, legs, face and body and bruises from where he has shoulder barged other boys. I'm not very keen on him playing and try to encourage other sports but he is determined to stick at it - I suppose if he felt the injuries were too serious then he would change his mind - but then maybe not!

Sorry - I probably haven't allayed your fears.
