I thought I'd just post a thread on behalf of my son and our local under 7's team. Today we took part in a tournament in Bristol and won!!! This invloved winning 5 games.

I have coached the team for the last 2 seasons and it was great to see them win - and with no "pushy" parenting at all! The highlight of the day was beating our local rivals 6 tries to 3. We are only a very small squad which makes it all the better.

Yes indeed.

Lets hope all the home nations can get their acts together and catch up with the kiwis soon. Maybe not this world cup but the next!

Thank you for your comments!

They should be on Central contracts to eliminate the club vs country issues I think.

I agree - in their agegroup (U 7'2) the local football team have a squad of 50+. At the rugby club it's about 10-12!!

you only have to look at the guiness premiership, heineken cup and the anglo welsh cup to see what a magnificent game rugby union is......not really any primadonna's only guys who give it all week in week out for a fraction of a footballers wages.

I was talking to one of our parents the other day - their child also plays football. They had a football match cancelled because the visiting coach had quit - he had been punched the week before. Not by a parent of an opponent but by one of his player's parents for not selecting him!!!??

This does NOT happen in rugby.
