But its the start of Rugby season again! Yes Sunday was the start of the season and the boys have moved up an other year.

Ronan has gone into the Primary 6 group and this year they have 3 man scrums to contend with. He was placed in the middle of the 3 and proudly announced that he made a good hooker! Having said that he was complaining of having sore shoulders.....He was using muscles he didn't even know he had!

Robert has graduated from Primary 3 up to Primary 4, well he would have if we had a team....We only had 3 turn up on Sunday and we need 6 for a team. So after a stint learning how to tackle....Eye to thigh, cheek to cheek and bands of steel!,then being given a chance to use the tackle bag and take a man out by tackling his legs.....Can't run if they have no legs!, He was promoted to play with the Primary 5's. I have grave reservations on this coz he is still only 7 and could be playing against 8-9 year olds and 2 years above the class he is in at school. I've had a word with their coach and we have agreed to see how it goes. I will be helping with the coaching anyway so will be around to make the decision. In the meantime I have got 1000 fliers to put out round the local schools so hope to get some more from that.
Robert was really looking forward to starting this season coz it was his chance to start wearing body armour or as I call it bubble wrap!

Oh well, time will tell. We have our first away game on Sunday 3rd September at Linlithgow so we have some work to do next week in preparation for that!

Oops...I guess this answers my email question about when the season starts! Tell the boys SP said "Good Luck"!

Ack -- scrums? Scrums are mythic things over here in the US... terrifying to contemplate for little ones. Any knitting while they play?
