Yes well done little Lurkio.
Trouble is now when you go to the matches you'll be terrifed he'll end up getting hurt!
In what position does he play?
05/03/2007 at 16:51
i have absolutely no idea
rugby is a total mystery to me

(good english BTW - "in what position?" rather than "what position does he play in?")
05/03/2007 at 16:51
he is tall and skinny if that helps at all
05/03/2007 at 18:51
Tall and skinny

Sounds like an ideal no 8

Thats the one at the back of the scrum

Tip - get him a gumshield....
05/03/2007 at 18:53
he already has one
he had it for karate

oh no
i'vejust realised
this will probably mean more chauferring

You don't want a skinny No 8 (feed him up!!). Does he run fast? If so he could be a centre, full back (you mentioned he could catch) or on the wing if he's fast.
Mind you, if he's got a little bit of aggression, No8 could be ideal!
A friend has a 14 year old who is already 6'00", with 11 1/2 feet, and he plays prop!

he's 12 and 5 ft 2 with size 6 feet
i suspect he is heading for 6 ft odd

he will be bigger than me before the summer is out

i don't really thik he is built to play rugby, he is a bit slight
more for long distance running as he has long legs and no bum (like his dad)
i could be completely wrong
he is certainly still growing

I must measure my 12 year old. He'll be 13 at the end of the month but is in size 7's (I'm only 8 1/2!) but I can still rest my arm on his head much to his annoyance!!!
I love kids but I couldn't possibly eat a whole one. boom.. boom... tish!

I know the boing wasn't for me, but thanks for it anyway.

One of the most illuminating threads I've ever read.

me me me again but

boy1 has been selected to be one of the ball boys at the DFS classic in brum - his school provide them
he is hoping to be holding the sun shade over maria sharapova


and i am really hoping they give him a job like that too as i am a bit worried about him falling over or something if they actually have him manning the net.
but he is not at all worried - and he gets full kit including trainers so he is very happy

am not sure that he does any work at school these days
which of course is fine by him

he is obsessed with sport - in an ASD way - but i never thought he would be doing so much of it in the physical sense
it's great

SVT - i know i asked you this somewhere else - but then forgot where it was - are you doing beachy head this year?

20/03/2007 at 16:42
lurker - good question. Last time you asked it was a 'no'. But I'm unsure whether I'm going to manage Lochaber at the moment. If not, I may be up for a fun October marathon...

It always seems like a fun idea beforehand, and the memories are fun after a week or so. There's just that short period of pain inbetween... :-)
20/03/2007 at 16:55
7 hours in my case
oh and being unable to walk for a day afterwards - although it wasn't as bad last year as it was the year before

20/03/2007 at 16:56
this is well off topic

sorry slo sho if you come to look at it
read back

Thanks lurker. I've read back and have got a lot of food for thought from this.
