the long lane coming into the Worthing Rugby Club
yep - these would be speed bumps
these boys are so happy
even though this pic is not completely clear it gives a realistic shot of what rugby is all about - and yes that boy in the back is yelling - it is part of the game
learning how to protect the ball
this is just one of those - I looked up and grabbed the camera and prayed the shot would come out - of course it did not - I was all the way across the field and it was nearly dark. I just had to document this memory of my 2 boys on their first rugby team in England. Hopefully we will get their uniforms this weekend at training. sorry for all the photos but I wanted to capture how it is to watch their trainings - so entertaining - there is nothing like rugby - if you have boys you would understand - it is knock down dirty rough play and they absolutely love it. the coaches are awesome - I have never seen coaches so enthusiastic in any other sport - the kids on the team are wonderful and welcoming to the boys - everyone out there is family oriented and friendly. A great experience and we all look forward to the upcoming season in such a positive and fun environment.
PS - both boys were sore for days
